...and a bunch of 2s! I really have no reason to complain. I didn't really WANT to win, I definitely didn't EXPECT to win, but I did think I had a nice shot that was on-topic. Why did I end up with 10 2s?

Oh well. My great scores outweighed my crappy scores so I'm happy. Best score ever and I just hope it's not a fluke.

I would just like to have some justification of the scores that are given sometimes. I know it will never happen. I guess this is why this is a RANT.

OK, I'm going to bed.

Don't sweat it; there's no accounting for how peeps will vote. Your photo is awesome.

and in the current voting - to whoever voted on my pic already, thanks - it looks good to see my pic up there with a score of "8" (if only for another 10 minutes) :P

I guess I made that comment. But I gave you a 9. You got worse from others, right?

I'm not whining - I'm giving MUCKPOND an example of what some people use to justify giving out lower scores --- however, I will take this opportunity to voice my disappointment with whoever's responsible for denying me a share of that $120 million lottery !!!

I don't think it is whining to complain about obviously ridiculous scores. Clearly, if you don't care for the subject then score it lower than otherwise; but this is a well-shot pic, in focus, on subject and with (regardless of whether one likes it not) some degree of creativity. Therefore, a 1 or 2 is simply dumb and reflects a lot worse on the giver than the receiver.
