All of my entries lately are hovering at 5.2 to 5.6 and its bugging me..

My 5.27 start confirms me that DPC voters always love standard images and rarely appreciate something even slightly different from that. This is not a problem. Challenges are an inspiration for me, so I'm not always interested in the score if I have created an image I like very much :)

I think I got mine earlier when I went from a 6.7 to a 6.4 in one vote.

LOL... They don't quite realize that if everyone gets a one then their vote doesn't count (except their pic gets a slight boost).

I often wonder about people trying manipulate scores on this site. To be honest, I go by the non-participant score at the end. I also dig the comments.

Mine is not doing so well this time...

Very middle of the pack as expected. For a last minute entry, I'm happy with it:

Hmm, well I wasn't expecting much... the voting pattern's interesting though; started just above 5, began touching 6 around 12 votes, then down to 5.1, now back up again slightly. Sure it's only the first few votes but I _hope_ that means it's getting some high votes. That's always more rewarding than just seeing a sea of mediocrity once I look at votes received come challenge end =).

Love what you had to say. :)

If one wants to get higher votes in DPC...here's some tips to keep in mind in your composition...

Get on a plane and find the most exotic scenery you can find (preferrably an ocean...unless you already live in such a place).

Set up a shot of a bee on a flower, complete with water drops. Make sure that something falls into some sort of liquid in this shot, catching the splash brilliantly and, if you can...throw in a very physically fit nude model or two for good measure.

LOL ;)

Joking

But...well...even in joking, there's some truth to it.

This should be a very good week. I'm on track to replace two of my top five. One of them I don't really want to see on my top five but DPC voters apparently do :)
