Starting off fairly mediocre. I really like my entry, but this start does not surprise me.

Not what everyone wants to see, it appears. Under a 5 now.

8 votes, average 4.0 ..... What the hell!!!!!!

I am so annoyed with myself - for some reason I misread the challenge description, and in my mind made it more restrictive than it is. My entry is doing well, but I had other potential entries that I didn't enter because I saw them as being DNMC which they weren't at all. Ah well, a lesson to me in paying attention to detail!

Could be heading for a personal worst. I didn't think it was this bad. Goes to show that my PP skills are crap.

Not sure where this will finish.

Wonderful challenge. No wonder my scores are falling...

You have rated 116 of 116 images (100%) in this challenge.
You have given an average score of 6.9138.

I expected this would likely struggle. Picked up decently overnight, though.

Just went from a 6 to a 5.8 in one vote. I'll assume that was a vote of 1.
07/01/2011 09:03:39 AM · #17
There are some harsh voters around right now, however, I am still delighted with my 6.6 but that dropped from a 7.2 so slightly gutted...

It was a valiant effort on my entry's part to keep a 7 but it couldn't. Still pleased!!

I agree with you! I wasn't expecting a win, but don't feel it deserves 1, 2, & 3's!

Ohmygosh... I went out yesterday to shoot for fun, and came up with something I thought might be worthy of entering in this challenge, but didn't really think so. But for some reason, I was thinking I had until Sunday to decide. I checked in this morning to decide not to enter it because I thought it was too... well... just not good enough, but lo and behold, there it was already in voting. Oyyyyyyy. Oh well. It's at 6.1, so at least it's not as bad as I feared :)

Now off to see everyone else's masterpieces.

Doing better than I expected. I can't compete with stunning landscapes or amazing bird & wildlife portraits so I wasn't going to enter. Glad I did now.

I'm astonished at the quality of shots in this challenge (not mine, although if you vote for mine I'll take it)... great job everyone!!

I asked around the "office" what was the first thing that came to mind when I said "National Geographic Magazine"
The response was "Nature and Wildlife!" Needless to say NG is a huge mix of that, Photojournalism, Human Interest, History, Oceanography and even Armed Conflict to name a few. I fear that entries are voted on the basis of Nature first and everything else a dim distant or DNMC. *Grumble*

Mines bounced back from a 3.something to 4.4! I urge voters to PICK UP and leaf through an actual magazine and not just surf to their website.

Having said that there are some beautiful nature/wildlife shots :)

Received this comment this morning. "...I don't think NG would publish however, sorry!"

This really pissed me off. The person is entitled to register their vote and post their comment. It's just not necessary to throw out a comment like that. The person went out of their way to insult. Wish I hadn't submitted an entry.
