yeah these first day morning voters are always harsh. its like they wake up in a bad mood.

I'm not worried about score, I am worried that I loose creativity, spark or whatever...

The image I chose was the first one I sold for over $100. I'm sitting at 3.8xx right now with that image. In the end I would rather the money over position here, it's at least some solace.

I'm right there with you, Mike. I entered what is my best shot from last year. I have a copy enlarged and framed hanging on the wall. And it looks great. I thought for sure it would at least get a 6+ score. Last night after 7 votes it was 4.x. It came up some and is now at 5.3x. Same thing with my other best of's, I think they are 6's and they score very low.

So with that said, I'm still going to shoot for me and enter what I can. So does that mean I suck as a photographer? No. It just means I haven't figured out how to please people on the internet.

And even if you do, your shot still gets panned...at least it seems like it.

Hmm. Off to a great start! I have a 4.75 thus far, which gives me a variance of 0.65.

Oh, this is gonna be a close one, Deb. Mine's at 4.6364 this morning.

.........bummer....didnt get on in after torturing myself with the editing on my original pik......good luck everyone! Have a great New Year! Keep entering....confidence goes up and down but in the end it is the motivation and the search and the hunt and the excitement that keeps us all going....NOT the scores.....

Not true. Relying on location alone to provide you with a good shot won't get you far. If you know where to look and have some idea as to what can be found, your own backyard can provide you with a shot that will do well.

But if you only trot out the camera and shoot in earnest when on vacation in a scenic locale, you're only robbing yourself. And yes, there are lots of nice scenic entries, some obviously in vacation hotspots. That doesn't mean they're all jaw-dropping, though.

Posted it in the wrong thread!

Doing better than I thought! I was expecting around a 5 since it was just a grab and post.

Stats: You have rated 291 of 294 images (99%) in this challenge.
You have given an average score of 6.0687.

I have no pony in this race but greatly enjoyed many of the entries.

I made a promise during last year's "Best Of" to leave comments in the form of a short story or poem. So those comments will be coming slowly but surely:-)

BTW anyone up for a 20 comment challenge challenge?????

Bummer ... but remember you can post that one which was DQ'd earlier in the Out-takes thread once the voting is over and still get some feedback.
