I should never entered back into the arena until I was truly ready to roll with the punches. I have too many things on my RL plate to deal with ...the creation/exploration of art was enjoyable and that is what I need to focus on during this time.

Thank you to the 3 commmenters who took the time to leave their impressions - Good luck to all who entered.

As my score continues to tumble (4 point something), I have gone back for a closer look at the entries to enter some comments. There really are some gems in this one!

I've dropped to just holding onto a 5. I didn't expect a good score and the two favs make me happy.

Can amyone interpet this comment to me??
Form isn't the star and to me isn't even very interesting in this shot. I think this is an interesting shot.

I am corn-fuzed! LOL

My score has dropped over 0.3 overnight.
Got a comment that it one of the best shots along with a 4 vote... strange!
And now the votes have slowed down with the FS kicking in

I only entered this challenge at the last moment and entered a photo I took before I had even seen the Edward Weston challenge. The photo was taken whilst I was on holiday and I did not even know about the Edward Weston challenge yet. So when I saw the challenge I just entered one of my holiday shots that I thought would be the closest thing to Weston's style and converted it to B&W. It really isn't at all Weston's style, it's more my own style ha ha ha...anyway...it's doing badly thanks ha ha ha personally I like it very much warts and all for exactly what it is. A raw cut of life without any pretense.

Ps. Oh and I'm glad I didn't enter a shell or a bell pepper or a lettuce leaf or a posing nude.
I left an explanation in my photographers comments for this image explaining the reason for the "fault" that most of the comments mention. I find the "fault" actually adds to the reality of the moment and it's a pity that others cannot see that.

100 vote check-in. It's been down, then up, then down, then up. Interpretation of Weston is a broad thing.

A very slow but steady increase throughout the week - very pleased to see this trend. Will I get to 6? Not sure, but at this point i am happy. Unfortunately, I was looking at my other shots in preparation for the challenge, and found one so much better I could almost kick myself for missing it...I guess I will have a nice 'outtake'.

I have two comments:

1. OUCH! I'm getting slaughtered even worse than I thought I would.

2. IMHO a Weston shot likely will not win this challenge as there are some great photos here but the best are not Weston.

Oh and I really do have two comments:

Being down voted because I have not copied the Weston look, But I have created a photo that resembles his style as the details state.

The commenter believes that a "Weston Shot" is about "form", and your shot, while interesting in its own right, does not showcase a particularly interesting form, or indeed any form at all, according to the commenter. Accordingly, it's an interesting picture but a bad Weston.

That's the way I interpret the comment.

Not all Weston shots are about form...

I know that, you know that, but possibly the commenter does not know that, is my point.
