I'm right at 5.0000 with 4 mins to go.

Sorry for the lackluster Pentax K-3 debut.

Judging by the comments, we should never ever have such a challenge like this again, way too boring!!

Here comes the final 24 hours score-drop.
12/12/2013 01:34:41 AM · #6
Must say I'm not unhappy at the moment. Had a number of 4's yesterday and my score dropped, but overnight (for me) I got some nice votes. So after 37 I'm on 5.5946. Obviously it would be nice to be in the 6's, but I'm not complaining.

This is what DPC voters looks like


When are voters not like that?

I am proud to say that my top picks for the challenges rarely make blue or even a ribbon (often not even top 10).

Back to bed thinking angrily that ok, that was the overnight lowball voters, it'll creep back up today...

Woke up at seven and checked score... 5.09...

Barely keeping my head above the 5s....

Ok, so that was a few trolls early on and it was in the 4s, sure that's it... it's been CLIMBING to get to 5.09 and will rocket up today.

Next vote? 5.

So much for this challenge.

The people you're complaining to are the people you're complaining about.


Yeah, I suck that way

lol. Yes, I'm trying to see how the voting trend is. For my scores the trend is usually like this:

' . substr('//s30.postimg.org/ahheyss9d/Trend.png', strrpos('//s30.postimg.org/ahheyss9d/Trend.png', '/') + 1) . '
The arrow indicates the start of the last day of voting.

News for you... there is NO creative mind in DPC voting what so ever... ZERO. If it ain't shiny, saturated, clean... you ain't getting votes. Creativity, level 11 out of 10 here, period.


+ 1

first 3 votes avg 6.66
next 3 votes avg 5.67
next 6 votes avg 4.83

see the trend, this is happening in nearly every challenge, I reckon some people just go around at the beginning of a challenge and hit most photo's with a 4, anyway I know my image is not that good, neither is it that bad... but consistency on here is at an all time low at this present time!
