Oh heck, I'll play.

Seeing as my highest ever was 7.873, I'll guess that what I have in will be a 7.585 and the winning score will be 7.873 7.875 LOL
Game On!

Alrighty, since this is my first entry as a paying member, I'll play. While I love my photo, I think it will score right around where I always do.

Me: 5.143

Winner: 7.252

Good Luck everyone!

Ok winning score 8.256 (probably Brad P)

My score 7.118

Nothing like setting yourself up for a dissapointment

I love mine which is what really counts...

It would be nice for others to like it lots too but it's not a highly colourful studio shot nor a beautifully composed artistic black and white shot nor a humorous shot nor an incredibly original, never-been-seen-before shot so I'm not expecting too much!

I think it will score around 5.0 or maybe 5.5 if I'm lucky.

I have one entered but am likely going to change it before the deadline.

I figure I will get what I always get; 4.900
01/11/2005 07:13:01 AM · #7
I'm really hoping for a 6+.. but I'm going to go conservatively here..


Winning score:

If something like that happened, I would SERIOUSLY need to find a place to hide before the lynch mob found me. ' . substr('//www.forocoches.com/foro/images/smilies/qmeparto.gif', strrpos('//www.forocoches.com/foro/images/smilies/qmeparto.gif', '/') + 1) . '

Nice Idea. Each of us that participate here must come back to face the nunbers again, after votes.

my personal best is 5.77, but I'm very happy witj my entry in this one, so if I do achieve a new personal best I'll be happy. My gess is to be a bit better than 6.00. the future will tell.
01/11/2005 07:31:10 AM · #11
This will have to be a very high scoring challenge and I think that will drag mine up a bit so here goes.

Mine 6.25 (i wish)
Winner 8.18
01/11/2005 07:36:08 AM · #12
mine 0.000

Oops, I edited to take my score out to the 3rd decimal. Hope that doesn't screw me up and end up taking me out..... :-( Oh Well.

hehe.. I don't think anyone is listening.
01/11/2005 08:18:58 AM · #18
Tricky, seeing as i haven't decided on an entry as yet :-)

If I submit the shot that is currently in, I think I'll score around 4.949 (around?). If I submit the other one I'm considering, I think it'll score 6.954 - but I think it's a less interesting photo. The winner - well, there'll be a touch of 'masters' syndrome for sure, and anyway folks' selections are so much more open ... I'd expect some of the highest scores we've seen. Let's say 8.416

01/11/2005 08:39:36 AM · #19

I'm submitting a nice contoversial photo. so I guess 5.165 (some will like it others will really hate it).

Winner - I guess its going to be a high score, so around 7.935 ish

01/11/2005 08:45:43 AM · #20
Dunno about the winning score, but 3rd place will be 0.0003 more than I get ; )
01/11/2005 08:50:25 AM · #21
My Score: 5.734
Winner: 7.683

01/11/2005 08:50:28 AM · #22
I like my photo but have a feeling I'm going to be beaten up pretty badly.

Mine: 5.455
Winner: 7.452
01/11/2005 09:08:07 AM · #23
Let´s play! I like my pic, but I got the feeling you don´t like it...
My score: 5,169
Winning Score: 7,769... I love number-69!
01/11/2005 09:17:28 AM · #24
I think my photo on its own would do well...in comparison to many others in the challenge, it will suffer some.

My score: 6.043
Winner: 8.711
01/11/2005 10:00:46 AM · #25
My score 6.773, winner 8.120.

Fingers crossed anyway :)
