I went through and have voted on about half of the entries. I really had high expectations for the quality I would see in this Master's Free Study. There are certainly some very nice images in there. Others just left me thinking how the heck did this person earn enough Ribbons to enter this challenge.
. . .


I barely did. And I did not get a "worthy" shot this week. But I decided it was more important to play than to worry about the score. Mine was doubtless one of "those" :)


Like you Nikki I entered to be part of the competition. I take Matt's comments with a grain of salt! fueled by jealousy.

That's one of the unpleasant consequences of opening this challenge to non-members, we get non-members voting!


I take exception to your comment, I've been a paying member here for over 7 years and just this month let my membership expire. Why would my vote be worth less than someone who has been here less than 2 years such as yourself.


The veterans who are presently off-membership always take exception to this observation. Even the good ones.

Bottom line is that anyone with an account, paid or otherwise, is allowed to vote in open challenges. While there are some excellent photographers who meet that criteria, yourself included, there are also those who don't know a photograph from a phonograph and they vote.

That's it. Not a blanket statement about EVERY open voter... just an observation about open voting in general.

If you look closely at what was said I could understand Matt's reaction. There was more outside of a blanket statement.

Point taken... He could have been more clear.

Well, I thought I'd wake up with a 5-something, but I seem to be holding onto a low six which is good enough in my book.

Last night when I went to bed I had 2 votes with a score of 8. Knew that would not last, but I am happy with where it is currently sitting.

Great score! Congrats.

I am at 5.8958 with 48 votes, which is better than I expected with my subject matter, so I am pleased overall. No comments yet though.

Can I just say this is painful....this is what I get for "out if the box" work!!!

I'll do my best for the commenting but I'm traveling so I'll be limited....excellent entries...quite a few that just took my breath away!!!

Finished voting, I'll try to comment as much as I can.

I am surprised I am doing as well as I am with my subject matter.

Voters are being kind, I know that will not continue tho. Mine always seem to go before dropping .5 to 1 point.

I love the shot, but the score so far is about as expected for it in DPC-land. Low 5's.

There are some kind votes out there. Just crossed over the 6 point, which is better than deserved in this group of photogs.
