Open challenges seem to often start off with very low voting.

3 votes for 5.33 over here.

Mine is up and down, am very disappointed with my score.

I'm disappointed too. 4.8ish for a shot that fits the challenge criteria spot on and is fairly pleasing to the eye. At least I thought it was :/

Most voters won't care. Look at any challenge recently. If it's a good image it'll do alright regardless if it meets the description or not. It's why I don't bother entering anymore.

Not sure where you are getting that...the moon challenge entries had the moon in it, the free study was just that, and the stranger challenge was clever and the vast majority easily met the challenge. I think you have a point with 'yes or no' but your comment is more than a bit overstated here.

i thought so too, honestly that's why i left it in, but apparently it does matter since my score is low and im getting all sorts of comments of the sort.

sure i am partial, its one of the better images in the challenge, and in no way should it be my lowest scoring image ever, which it is right now.

I keep bouncing between 5.1 and 5.5 regularly. Im happy considering I didnt take this photo specificly for the challenge and im submitting just to submit.

It depends on the challenge. If the difficulty of the challenge is the whole point, then you'll definitely get hit. There's too many people that are trying to shoot it right, dealing with the technical difficulties that the description requires, that they'll vote down those who didn't appear to bother trying. But if the challenge is more open to interpretation "take a picture of the animal -- fox" you'll get shots of gorgeous females that score well, because it fits, but stretches.

This is a boundary that probably won't stretch well.

There's also the ones that under no stretch of the imagination meet the challenge and still do well simply because they're eye candy.

Comment removed because this discussion is not following the intent of the thread. Sorry...Back to the scores.

Some imaginations stretch further than others.

People still don't get how it works here?
09/12/2012 12:01:57 PM · #23
Well, voters knowledge of photography is pretty low here... so it doesn't surprice me that they don't care, if a photo meets the challenge or not either.

The thumbnail for this image is stellar. People should vote more based upon the thumbnail.
