I don't think the voters are seeing the hidden image within my image..But I had fun with the shot and just hope people see it.

20 votes, 3.7.

And if it finished under a 4, I'm seriously going to consider leaving this site. So depressing.

And the winner is?
- landline phone
- cell phone
- tin can
- message in a bottle
(didnt think the last two would be that popular)

Don't do that! I looked at your photo, you are doing a good job. It's not what others think of your photos [everyone has different taste], it's what you think of your work. Keep at it, you will be up again. Wish you the best in this challenge and future one's.

Steady decline since the begining.
I just don't understand these voting patterns.

I know its a commonality to say "This was my best work!"
But I really mean it this time..

It seems people only see communication on cell phones and other electronic gadgets! I portrayed a cummunication media used for centuries and the only comment I got is about "it doesn't meet..."

4.833 avg here but honestly I was expecting this one to do badly.

But the week is still very young...

OK, I'm the new guy and it shows. This is the first challenge I've entered.

How do you get to see what's going on with the scoring and comments etc?

I was hoping (and still am) to score about 5.7 for this one. Come to think of it, I was expecting a 5.6 for my Parts challenge as well, but I didn't quite reach that either...

Edit: Blackdog, there's a spot for you to be able to check "My Scores" under My Home - My Preferences. This allows you to see the score on your home page.

OK, it was right there all the time, as usual I was looking for it to be more complicated than it actually is. The av. is 4.6, could be worse I suppose.

But I don't have any comments, is that unusual?

Not this early...If your shot is average (about 4.5 - 5.5) and nothing is too unusual about it, it could take over 100 votes before you get your first comment...as was the case in my last two entries.

Started around 1:00am with a 7.0, woke up at 6:00am with a 5.8, Im now at 5.2 - not a good trend.

Not that good :\

4.8 and falling.

I chose something that I knew people wouldn't like/think matched the challenge (though *I* do) just to see how low of a score I could manage by pushing the theme a bit. It's not a very interesting photo at all, and took about five minutes in total to take and edit.

Pffff.

I was hoping for last place, but all it's going to do is drag my average down. The depressing thing is that I've done worse with photos I really liked, and chances are that even by the end of it, when my score should be much lower, I will still have worse scores to my credit. My Defining Features entry, which I think is one of my best, is not that much higher.. hovering now at 5.5 and poised to fall more.

Very disappointed. I guess I really, really don't know what people on here like or dislike.

Over the past 3 challenges, I have plotted the scores to watch the trend. (I know, I'm sad.... but that's an engineer for ya)

On every one, I have started out high, and then steadily dropped until about 100 votes, then it levels off. Then a rise towards the end.
