This was my general impression before I looked thru the entries and started voting. Much to my surprise however, I am finding that if each image is examined on it's own merit (and not under some notion that all are supposed to be the best of the best), then overall they are quite good so far. I have only completed 17% of the entries, but so far my average score given is 6.2xxx.

i was mad when i got up and saw 8 votes at 4.83333, then i saw this thread, then i got my coffee for morning break and i'm up to 5.2 at 16 votes. i know this is not a pullitzer prize winning photograph, but it's not cannon-fodder either, i was really hoping for a high 5's out of this image.
unfortunately, if you're not one of the usualy top 15 ribboners here, most scores are lower than average lately. i know there's a lot of hoop-la about how the trend is no different or higher in some regards, but take a look at your own entries and you know that images are pulling lower scores than they would have a year ago.
what's sad is when this happens on an image that you care about and are proud of, knowing that it is not as bad as the score here dictates it must be.

anyways, i'll sign off now until i get another major swing in votes, which im sure is bound to happen before this whole thing is done.

5.5 to a 6 and back to a 5.65.... If I can get a 6 i will be happy. honestly I wasn't too impressed with the entries, I was expecting a lot more.

My first entry in a long time, due to life getting in the way. Predictable good start and a long slow decline. At least DPC remains consistent in this regard.

So I broke many of my own rules tonight.
First as a rule I do not vote where I play. But I am disgusted and decided to do my own little reality check.

I voted on the ones I saw as 7 Plus and got a nice high average for the 17 worthy art images. Yip, 17 worthy, none for which mine, at 4.5 currently, stands back . Then I only voted the deserving 1 to 4's and decided to make them all, all 47 of them, a 4. The rest of the images I did not vote on, the 5 and 6's.

And my average worked out a very balanced 5,0469. So, even if I wanted to try trolling, I can not succeed. I wonder how can some of you?

A troll confessing being a troll? Nah... they usually remain silently in their little corner, knocking themselves out reading the posts after their visit.
So..sorry, I don't buy this one ;)

The old old old story again and again and again....I really am getting so tired from it :(

Started of with a BANG and after 11 votes was at 6.5
Then downhill all the way and now at 29 votes and 5.7 and still dropping and no comments

Mehhhhhhhhhhh..........

We have noticed one member (not you or Minso) with an entry in this challenge who voted everyone else a 1 or 2. Remember, "We will disqualify challenge entries from, suspend or ban anyone who abuses the voting system in any way."

Hopefully those votes will all be scrubbed at rollover

Had to look this one up. Urban dictionary states the following:
UK. Said if you're offering someone a fight. Something a cockney gangster might say

It's on Mak!!

Well, to be fair, if they have historically voted low on this type of image, I suppose it's fair(ish) for them to continue to do so.

Perhaps they really just HATE this style of photography.
