Yes, we are the Toyota Corollas of photography. Dependable, good ride, but not sexy. I have scored a 5 in every challenge I have entered (ok, I got a 6.000 once, but I can't go around saying "I got a 6" or I look like a dip.). I seem to be capable and solid, but just can't make that jump.

This thread is for all you fivers out there...let us join in our adequatulence!!!

Ha, nico, go back to your camero. We don't need no steenkin' cameros here. This is for people who get 33 mpg...in the city! For those who do 0-60 in 6.9...minutes!

My average vote received is 5.3. Can I be in this club? Even though I occasionally manage to get a fairly high score, at least when i set my time/date stamp correctly?

Overall 5.2751 avg. This years avg is over 6. Also received over 6 with 3 different cameras :P

I guess I'm in too.

Sorry faidoi, you're top four photos are all over 6. And you're best is over seven. Anyone who has "seen the light" as much as you cannot possibly compete for mediocrity.

I personally am averaging just above 5.5, but I did place fifth once with a high 6 mark, so my inclusion would be questionable as well. I do have that "solid most of the time" aspect to my scores, but I yearn to do better overall.

Still getting used to a new camera.

Can I play? I'm an aspiring member 'cos my average vote is 4.95 but my highest ever has been a 5.8!

And go away all those who are posting that they can't join 'cos their scores are too high!!!! :))

You can't reject me. My average is just over 5.1. Admittedly I've been over 6 a few times and nearly got a ribbon twice, but lately I've been struggling to get anywhere near to 5.
09/14/2005 06:38:47 AM · #13
Heck, I've even ribboned a few times and STILL have an average of 5.64. Mediocrity is my destiny! :)

I can't agree. If that's mediocrity, I'm hopeless :)

I'm at an average of 5.2513. I did manage a six or two, in my 20 some challenges, but not enough to balance out the 5.0's I seem to hitting lately. Wish I could make the jump up into that wonderful world of 6. Lots of work and practice ahead for me, I guess. That's why I'm here:-)
09/14/2005 07:27:12 AM · #16
I managed to get to the top 20 once but I have never scored above 5.9 ;)

I would be happy to acheive mediocrity. With an average of 4.9 and a top score of 5.9. I find that on the DPC highway I am unable to maintain the minimum speed.
09/14/2005 07:58:56 AM · #18
Can I play too? :-) My average score is 4.8, but my top scores are around 5.2. I actually think I'm getting better at this thing they call photography. haha
09/14/2005 08:04:02 AM · #19
OH NO WHYYYY??????

I've strugled and worked hard to get the 6+ average vote recieved, just to be "one of the boy's"
And now that I managed that, it's suddenly cool to be at a 5 average and I can't join the club...

I will never be popular ;(
It's not fair!
09/14/2005 08:08:05 AM · #20
My average vote received is 5.9377, so I think I qualify. Yay! Finally some validity to my mediocrity! A Corolla suits me just fine, although my wife says I'm not "dependable, sexy, or a good ride." :-(
09/14/2005 08:27:09 AM · #21
Can I play? I'm almost to 5 avg even though ALL of my photos are better than everyone elses....If only I could vote on my own 400 times you would all see.

Mediocrity is but a step away for me. I am an aspiring mediocritian.

Viva La Revolution! I say we have a challenge where the goal is to hit 5 exactly! If you go over you are out!
