I thought album covers were square!

Actually most are!


I am deducting 5 points off all the unsquare ones .


Again, a bit harsh... hope you're applying some common sense to that rule.

Well, albums are square shaped aren't they?


Yes they are (normally)... but the challenge never said that the entirety of the photo submitted had to be the album cover -- just that you should create an album cover. Which I did do, but decided to use it as part of a narrative.

Couldn't make this point during voting for obvious reasons. :)

Is it really rollover night already? Well then, at 5.2ish I guess I'm also getting ready to play dead :-(


Getting pinged quite bad, dropped nearly 0.2 in last 10 votes, which is kinda unusual after 70 votes.

Neh, rollover is not till Sunday night

Love getting a 1 on rollover night!

Ok, about scores, votes and all those things - I have received 108 votes! That's a dash higher than usual. I wonder how many I'll end on.

Actually some album cover images wrap the front and back and are meant to be viewed in their entirety as open... so they would be more of a 2:1 ratio...

And that's just one example. :)


Ok, we can search every kind of exceptions, but 95% of album covers are square and that's a fact ;)


True... but regardless, I don't think we're to call out specific image(s) during voting... talking generically about DNMC is one thing (since DNMC is subjective and up to each voter), but saying "I'm voting down all the non-square ones" is calling out the ones that aren't square. Same as if you said all the ones with four-eyed puppies or any other objective criteria.


Only at dpc would this issue merit such a long discussion.

Next on the list:
Is the sky blue? Are 8-track tapes rectangular, or should we call them "brick-shaped"?

Actually, albums are typically round. Album covers are square. : - )

LOL well I thought my image was an easy 6.5 and it's been no higher than 5.1!! Only 2 comments, one really hits the nail on the head, the other mistakes it for another member's work. Which in this case is a compliment :-)

And yep the more I am here the more I realize how little I know about photography and more importantly, PS. Frustrating at times in terms of scores, but a very valuable resource for anything relating to this (for me anyway) costly little hobby :-)

ETA: Oooh, I just got a VR...soooo scared....not!

Hmmn. Well, you're a noob, correct?


199 challenges in 10 years. I think he's graduated from noob status.


Yes, I did go look at his profile after posting and realized my oops.

However, seeing that he has been dormant for most of those last 10 years, with the bulk of his entries taking place between 2006-2008, a few in 2009, and I believe one apiece in 2010 and 2013...well, yes. Seeing how much things have changed here in terms of rules, editing sets etc., he may as well be a noob.

And strictly fwiw I have been an active member for almost 8 years and have entered over 500 challenges.


Oh I am a noob, always will be. I dipped in and out for a while. But DPC is an excellent site and has taught me so much about photography and how to look at a photograph which in turn has taught me a lot in how to look through a lens. I still can't photoshop for peanuts.
I did take a while out but I aim to come back this year with a vengeance. Keep happy all.

Hmmn. Well, you're a noob, correct? And if you have a solid 6.3...well...from the looks of scores posted here, I'd say your probably in top 10. I've been here 8 years and am in the bottom 10. Cheer up.


I've been bottom ten a number of times. I am perfectly happy. :-). Not a bad score, but I like comments. Especially if it's not a bad score.
This site is all about the fun of photography. Kev

You have rated 70 of 70 images (100%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 13 images (18%) in this challenge.
You have given an average score of 6.2714.

Hasn't been me! I'm one of the few who actually give good votes to images better than mine.
