Just got a ten (really), thanks, I know it's not that bad, but neither is it that good! Oh these voters! Went from 5.7 to 6.16 in two votes in Best of 2013.

I thought I might as well balance the whining about the low votes with a whining about high votes :-)

Yes I'm back, I couldn't resist the 'photo like a painting challenge' I wanted to resist, I tried really hard, in fact I asked the SC only the day before to reinstate my acct so I could enter it, and Langdon kindly did with one hour to spare. I'm sorry I broke my promise not to return, but I feel I'm a different person now. I'm not concerned about scores, just producing what I love. I won't be posting much to threads anymore, kind of a time waster for me, and def won't be posting scores, I missed the creative aspect to photography, shooting for my work is not the same, although I love it, shooting for themes is much more creative for me, and I will just post what I love, rather than please the masses.

So to all of you that are sorry I've returned - you'll have to live with it, hehe, and to all those who support me (you know who you are) you really inspire me.

For someone who is not concerned about scores, it's certainly a surprise to see you start a scores thread.

You know, it depends on the intent of making the post. Changing one's mind about a personal course of action is not the same as lying about a promise to deliver ...

Does the score really matter...

At the end of the day, no, they do not matter.

I started the thread bc no one else did, that's all.

The Baghead told me why they gave me a one, basically mine is DNMC and I figured that before I entered the challenge, I even wrote down in my comments section, before rollover that I wasn't expecting much with my image, just had a little fun with it that's all.

BTW some really good images in the challenge overall!

Actually yes...

There isn't a photographer here who doesn't care about their score. They might claim to, but they get happy with good votes and disappointed with low votes -- though maybe not to the same level as each other.

If they didn't care about scores, they wouldn't enter a contest and would simply post their photos on Flickr or somewhere.

Amazing. What else can you tell me about myself?

LOL... I was posting before you wrote that. Yup, Shakespeare...

And some Philip Larkin:

Only one ship is seeking us, a black
sailed unfamiliar, towing at its back
a huge and birdless silence. In its wake
no shadows breed or break...
02/02/2014 12:00:22 AM · #25
Larkin would not
have darkened
this place
so unfull
of birdless silence
