early days, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' nam those votes never count towards the final total, I'm finding the more I stay here, the more I try to ignore those early votes...


Thanks, Anita. Unfortunately, it's still slipping rapidly. I don't think it will recover. No matter. Best go edit one for Negative Space. And then there's always Best of Art - which I enter but don't "do", either LOL

down to 5.39....damn, I think the key to me scoring well is catching people when they're almost asleep.... ;)

I guess I should quit grumbling about the 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5..... I seem to be getting today.

I'm impressed. Figured I would get a 5.5. Of course, there is still time to get there...

Well. Bottom third was a bit ambitious, I suppose. Past two years I've finished at 7%. Might be closer to that than 33%. But one likes to dream now and then!

Have to say I'm quite honored and very appreciative of all the love my photo is getting. 70 faves. That's incredible. And the voting isn't even 24 hours old. Thank you!

Can't complain. Well I could, but it wouldn't be right. Quite surprised, actually.

Votes, are a burnin thing
and they make, a fiery ring
bound, by impulse and desire
my score fell into a ring of fire

my score fell in to a burnin ring of fire,
it went down, down, down, and the flames went higher
and it burns, burns burns, the ring of fire
the ring of fire

the taste, of 6 was sweet
when first votes, we do see
I fell for it like a child,
oh, but the fire went wild

my score fell in to a burnin ring of fire
It went down, down, down and the flames went higher
and it burns, burns burns, the ring of fire
the ring of fire
.
.

that said, my score is slipping with every subsequent vote.
I figure i'll end in the 4's at this rate. I had such high hopes for this image to end in the upper 5's. :p

Started really strong, I had a 6.7 something after 13 or so votes, then of course it started to drop.

I still have my hopes up though for a personal best, and breaking the 6.5 on my wishlist.

I reposted a photo from the best of 2005 challenge in the photo a week thread. I went back and looked at my challenge entry. I placed 496/829 photos - not a remarkable showing, but the number of entries in the Best of 2005 challenge - 829 entries reminded me how things were back in the "good old days".

The amazing thing is at least half of the 20 people who commented on that entry are still active members here on DPChallenge. So while some things change at DPC, others (the people) are still here and are still terrific commenters and supporters of digital photographers.

As for my Best of 2014 entry - I'm barely hanging on to a 5.0 I guess better luck next year!
