I worked fairly hard on this challenge entry. Very disappointing results. I think it's time for me to look for more fair and objective photo contest sites. The voting here has headed way south for good photography which meets the challenge. That's not a good sign. Just my opinion, of course. It's certainly possible I am simply way out of sync with the active voters at DPC. At any rate, I'm shooting for my own self actualization during a difficult passage in my life. I don't need strategic voters right now.

I certainly can't speak for anyone else, but I am finding that the longer I am on DPC, the more my voting leans towards rewarding the images with personal appeal. That doesn't mean I'll drop a 1 on a well done entry that doesn't grab me, but my highest votes will be reserved for the ones that make a connection.

Doing ok for a shot I was meh about.

I think my effort meets the challenge and is a quality photo. So, I'm confused as to why the score is relatively low. This has been a change in voting patterns in the last few months. I think some people are voting tactically. But, I don't know anything. I'll just reduce my participation here and go elsewhere. It's perfectly okay.

+1 Just another sign of chaos at DPC.

Right?

Also in resopnse to your other post, dont base your expected results off your first 10 votes. Ive had an extreme variance in voting and untill about 30 or so votes and it leveled out eventually to something within .6 of where I finished. Never count yourself out!

Yes, the most awful, tear-down votes for my images are early on...these days. You understand that I'm not a rooky at this site? I'm way out of sync with the current set of DPC voters. It has nothing to do with the caliber of my challenge entries. It has much to do with some voters trying to elevate their scores by voting low on others' images. Just look at participation levels here and you'll realize the inmates are in control of the asylum.

I don't care for score long ago, even though I do enjoy watching it.
100 votes is the landmark for me to really consider it relevant.

I uploaded my entry last night , previewed it and changed title, shows as in challenge in my portfolio but is not on my left hand panel? I've submitted a ticket just now. 6.56am here

Remember the challenge description "

Whether it be coloration / processing, automobiles, wine, clothing or some other interpretation, offer an image that communicates "Vintage".

Don't base your vote on just one thing............lol I reckon that's happening to me, started on a 7, now a piddly 5.11....I guess that's what happens when you change your mind 1 1/2 hrs before the challenge starts, anyway I love mine nevertheless!!

I did not see one entry that would justify a low score like this...

so basically because the voters so far havent liked your image its because they are all wrong and your 1 opinion is right! and you are going to move till you find an audience that likes your image?

sometimes you get a 7 sometimes you get a 5.1 yeah its annoying but its fair, yeah ppl tactically vote i see my high scores changing near the end especially if ppl think you have a likely candidate, more often then not a high score posted on one of these threads will take a hit, but i just reflect that if they are that bothered about it how sad for their empty lives.

mine is still not showing up yet showing in my profile and portfolio, my other challenge entries are there but not this one annoying as i spent a good few hours on it, and i think the speed of help system may mean if it is a site error wont get put sorted fast enough to still be in the challenge :(

Last minute entry so happy so far...

Agree with what giles posted in response to hahn23.

hahn23, your posts are just coming across like someone who has done well in the past and is now throwing their toys out of the pram because they are no longer getting what they "think" they deserve... Good luck finding a competition site that doesn't have some tactical voters or worse still those sites that let you post "vote for me" all over the net.. take the good with bad like the rest of us do and remember this - what you think is "quality" others may not and thats their right to have that decision and vote accordingly.

Good luck to everyone and I will get to voting sometime today :)
