I was wondering how folks feel about their entry that scored lowest... I've poked around in profiles and reverse sorted a few folks entries and have often liked their lowest scores very much...

Personally I still like mine. Now that I look with 10+ years behind me, I'd have done something about the shadows on the table, the pitcher in the foreground, maybe crop a "little" tighter to get rid of the table corner.

But I still like the blurred motion of the arm. That was actually the main point of the pic to me.

So, what about yours?

Intentional effort at the brown, but I was beat out by Charliebaker and a black square.

3.6014 - I think hunters call it buck fever, except this was a doe. I was just so excited to get an actual picture of a live deer in the wild. It was quite dark, and I could just barely see it. Unfortunately the autofocus decided I was trying to shoot the tree on the right side, so the tree is in focus, but the deer is not. 1600 iso. I tried (in vain) to save it in editing (oh foolish one).

3.8202 - Technically it was horrible, but the camera had a lot to do with that. It couldn't manage the brown though. That had to wait for this one:

4.2029 - Taken last year with my 7D. I can't blame the camera for that. Maybe it's not as sharp as it could be but I still don't think it deserved the brown.

Very pleased I don't have the Lensbaby any more


I rather like this one. I think it's time I dragged my Lensbaby out of hibernation.

Just my opinion, but the trick with a Lensbaby is that something should still be in focus. ;-)

I still like it. It's not a super entry but it's been a funny set up and I learned a lot from that image, not about technique, but about what an image needs to be interesting.

3.1754 I made the mistake of being creative and humorous. I do like this image and I felt if one had an imagination, it met the challenge. But, there are a lot of voters who are more interested in voting down an image because it doesn't meet their narrow challenge description definition.

Still like it as a cartoon impression of speed. Ended up with six ones, ten twos, and score 4.1500 -- so obviously others had a different expectation for the challenge entries.

I don't like the centering on it, and I probably should have done it from a little farther back with the a white line in the frame, but it is pretty close to how I pictured it.
