Hay guys just a quick question. how well do artsy pictures do in challenges.
07/04/2004 08:26:46 PM · #2
BADLY!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I score many of them high -- and I hope others submit ones that they really enjoy themselves, regardless of how it scores. Good luck!!
07/04/2004 08:31:46 PM · #3
They usually score as good as cats do.

...of course, a lot depends on what the definition of artsy is and what mood the voters as a whole are in at that moment... but Kylie and pcody are right...usually not very well. I like to look at them, but I'm not much of an artsy person myself.

Cool. I'll just let my cat take the pictures from now on. ;-)

They, artsy pictures, the subject of the question, usually receive the same score as a picture of a cat does.
But thanks for the suggestion. Now how can I tape his little paw to the shutter? It would be safer to use the cable release.

Oh, THAT'S what you meant!

;-P

LOL

How well...

My worst challenge in my last 30 was an 'artsy' "meaning" shot.

Translation: dpc thinks art is just out of focus, poorly composed or "of nothing."

Artsy can mean a lot of things, but in my experience (not just my own work but in following those 'artsier' shots that I really like) they don't go over well. I had a variety of 'artsty' shots I had in mind for the June challenge but I just chickened out and chose something with a more popular subject.

Here are some of my rejects:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/7322/thumb/88014.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/7322/thumb/88014.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/7322/thumb/88013.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/7322/thumb/88013.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/7322/thumb/88011.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/7322/thumb/88011.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/7322/thumb/88012.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/7322/thumb/88012.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/7322/thumb/81932.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/7322/thumb/81932.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Not that I'm doing all that great in the June challenge anyway. Just my usual range--currently at 4.6870. I'm doing better in Color Portrait--5.4100. My Purple entry is a tad artsy.

What do you mean by artsy? If it's a nice interpretation of colors and shapes and pleasing to the eye, it'll do good. If it's a random bundle of crap, it won't do well.
07/04/2004 10:51:37 PM · #11
my idea of artsy...

look closely.

Artsy and deep (as in thought) go hand in hand. They don't do to well here, this is more of a technical "how'd they do that" place where people try to figure out how one did the shot as opposed to why. Unless of course it is a cat.

Hmmm.. Either it's a fuzzy, artsy shot of Yetti, or it's "a random bundle of crap"...

I think it's an alien. Am I right?

It's interesting, but I think since most people can't figure it out in a few minutes, they are frustrated and give it a low score. Can't be too artsy, it has to be a simple and elegant type of emotive art.

Tell us what this picture is!!!
07/04/2004 11:31:57 PM · #15
Is it someone standing on their head in someone else's field?
07/04/2004 11:45:18 PM · #16
It's a cow...a little black moo cow.
07/04/2004 11:48:06 PM · #17
I personally think calling a photo artsy is ridiculous and annoying.

But that's just my opinion. Just wanted to mention it.
07/04/2004 11:49:59 PM · #18
so if you have to look at it, it's crap eh?
the fence is in focus, and that is a boundry for me, and the cows can't get out...

look again...


07/04/2004 11:51:34 PM · #19
i would agree, but i sort of see the point of the post


07/04/2004 11:56:49 PM · #20
This is probably one of my more 'artsy' shots. It got a 5.7 which is ok, I guess. It's still one of my favorite submissions, though.

i think this would qualify as artsy. i was surprised it placed as well as it did.

As the name implies there is a line and that one plant is oblivious to it, BLURRING the boundary. It has a foot in each camp so to speak. Kind of like me, some times I like artsy and sometimes I prefer the technician, but I enjoy it most where both meet.
07/05/2004 12:12:22 AM · #23
thanks ;}

07/05/2004 12:23:36 AM · #24
I would consider this artsy, and it looks like it did quite well.
