Lots of up and down over the weekend, more down than up. Very nice comments, though.

I don't understand reactions like this. You have no clue who gave you that vote or how capable they are. Take your preconceived notions of your images and toss them out. They mean nothing when you're asking the public at large to assess your image.


21.gif Venser > Avg Vote Cast: 3.8891 < protest.gif That about quantifies your preconceived notion about my preconceived notion.
I also note that some of your comments are cookie cutter copy and paste jobs yet the images on the receiving end are oddly all different photographically speaking. Having said that many of your other comments are very well executed.

I am fully entitled to my vent as you are your castigation thereof. Without the troll leaving fair and warranted comment to back up his/her vote I stand with my former Jellyfish comparison. With a comment I'd be less apt to get annoyed.

I would love to know which is his image, give him what I believe is fair and then provide and a reason as to why I score the image as such. I thought about this for a bit then thought it might be best if our friend HarveyG simply asked for a critique of his image, thereby gaining an appreciation of the true worth of his image.

One should also consider the fact not everyone has he same voting scale and that there are some members that are rather frugal with their scores.

That would spoil the whole vote and comment process based purely on the image merits and not knowledge of the author behind it Ray :)
Unfortunately I cannot determine who voted low, or I would have engaged them for a comment.

I only did that in the Homage challenge. It was hard to comment on that particular challenge because of the challenge itself.
From now on I'm trying to comment on all my top votes since I'm not entering challenges all that frequently. I thought about doing it on the low end, but writing I think the other images are better would get redundant. The reasons could vary from anything (derivative, technically flawed, DNMC, ...), that I thought letting the people know why I gave them a good vote would be more worthwhile. Not only that, I'm pretty far off most challenges from the end ranking, so the people getting comments probably appreciate them a little more.

I haven't commented on the last four or five challenges since I was on vacation. Time to start up again tomorrow.

You can always ask after a challenge. I always respond to any thread in which someone asks why/how they got a particular vote.

Score seems to have settled down and the comments keep coming. Back in the day, a 10:1 vote/comment ratio would mean a top ten or maybe even better, but things seem to have changed around here. Not complaining, just observing. I'm very happy with what I have.

I have to say that 21.gif HarveyG comment on my shot was terribly spot on. I was impressed with the few words that so divinely cut to the chase of what DPC is like and what it stands for. I was impressed that DPC went beyond my expectations at one point and actually looked, voted for actual merit, then was brought back to reality as to the 'view' and conceived idea's that we all go by.

But that is just my opinion , being on the dark side an all! LOL

Well I just got done voting. Some really awesome stuff out there. Hopefully, I will get time to comment on some more.

Me, too. I really do like this one. A few more comments would be nice, but I sure can't complain much about the score. Hit at least twice by trolls, but also hit by a few 8s and 9s. It all evens out, I suppose.

Kept floating from 5.5 to as high as 5.98 at one point. Really thought this would do much better than 5.6. Meh

My score has been bouncing between a 6.1 and here. I am satisfied with this. It appears as though I recently received a score of 2. I know it is subjective, but find a 2 hard to swallow. I'm not sure anyone who makes an effort to enter a challenge deserves a 2. Life goes on though. So have a happy day!!!

I can hardly wait till roll-over so I will know my score.

Yeah I know I could know the score now, but if I did that I might want to join the ranks of those who are not impressed by the voting trolls... and I really don't want to do that.

I promise not to bitch even after I find out what my score is. :O)
