My problem this year's been a little different; I have only two that almost broke into the 6's, but quite a few that actually did but never climbed into the much more satisfying 6.3+ range. I've also been suffering from schizophrenia; lots of 6's, but a TON of very low scores as well. Anyway, here's my two almost-6's for the year:

The Whiterook shot is especially frustrating, as I REALLY wanted to see him on the front page...

I had a funny thought. What about pics that I have fave'd that got a 5.9... Sadly, I found a few that I thought might be candidates that scored a 5.0 and a 5.1... weird.

But here are some pics I took my hat off to that came ever so close to 6, but not quite.

I got a 5.9 once. Most of my scores usually rock the high 4's, though. And another thing--amongst my shots that have been picked as a favorite, only about 1/3 are challenge entries.

In 365 challenges, I have exactly one 5.9.
Wonder what that means.

Indeed! Thanks for sharing those! Was there a way you sorted them by score or was it hit or miss, trial and error?

To put more numbers on this his total points tally for this was: 5.9939 * 165 = 989
For a score of 6 with 165 votes you'd need 990.
So if one person gave him a vote one higher he'd've gotten his 6!
Can't get much closer than that.

I blame his three 10's!

Two 5.9's in one week.
Only thing is I am very happy to have a 5.9 that would be .8 above my average.

I wish, no I had to go through the whole durned thing one at a time. I checked pics that were in challenges, then I excluded the ribboners. Wasn't that bad...

my nearly 5.8 pic turned to a 5.56 on rollover. stink.

Nice, Penny!

I had a 6+ in FS until rollover, then it fell below even tiny violin stage. That's probably the biggest drop I've seen in a rollover. That's the way the cookie crumbles, though.

And another!!!!!!!!!!

This was above 6 the ENTIRE challenge, 6.4 for a couple of days. It was only a couple of hours before rollover that it went down to 6.0something, I guess it dropped to 5.9 when the scores were finally calculated.

Another one for me. This was my entry in Sound III that reached 5.9763. It is, however, my highest finish in a challenge at 86% but with only one (and appreciated) comment I guess not many found it that interesting.
