for the first time in any challenge!
Unfortunately it has dropped to 5.9760 now but for a few minutes I was scoring a 6 in Greeting Card!

Sorry, just had to share that moment of pure joy!!!

WTG! Don't give up hope...it can still happen!

With the extra bump we normally get at the end of challenges due to scores being dropped I am sure you will be over the 6 mark. Good luck.

i find alot of my entries seem to bounce .10 or .15 at the very end of the voting, so if you're at 5.90 near the end there's a good chance you will end up over 6.

Thanks folks!

I just love being part of this community and feeling I can whoop with pleasure publically and not feel a fool!

I don't mind if it doesn't reach 6 again - I've been there!!!

Probably silly to those of you that reach this regularly but to a rank amateur it really means a lot!
:))))))

Not silly at all. I am a "rank amateur" too and my bubble is currently at 6.033. I started my first challenge between 3 and 4, then I got a few challenges with 4's and then 3 with a score of 5. To my amazement and joy it seems that getting a 6 is now quite probable.
Feeling the progress and seeing the learning effect from trial and error, from browsing through all those amazing pictures at DPC and from receiving a lot of helpful comment, is really satisfying.

The only problem and challenge now is trying to live up to the new level of scoring and constantly achieving a higher average.

All in all, really a lot of fun.

Btw, congratulations on your 6 to be score.

Kind regards

congrats! it's a great feeling.

i'll never forget the euphoria i felt when i woke up one morning and saw that one of my shots was above 7. i thought it was kind of a mediocre shot, so it was a huge surprise.

wtg!!

Photos usually get some nice bumps at the end, a 6+ is still within reach! Good luck!
09/27/2005 05:00:56 PM · #14
Riponlady, My score is wavering above and below 6.0 too. I may be celebrating my first 6 with you! -Goodluck!

Yayyy, good job!

I know what you mean. When voting first started at one time I had a 6.6 and was nearly giddy, lol. It dropped though, at one point to a 5.6 I think and now is hanging right in the area of 5.8 though. I have to say though, I have gotten the best comments ever and have been enjoying that like crazy! I mean, just awesome comments, they've really given me a boost.

Good Luck and I hope your score just continues to rise!

I'm sharing your elation! I too have finally got an image entered that is in the sixes. I was so thrilled to see my score when I checked the first time which was almost 24 hours after the challenge voting began. So far I'm hanging in there:

Congratulations!

I just got out of the 4's and into the 5's with my last two challenges. Unfortunately, my BUBBLES entry I think is misunderstood. I forgot when I titled it that not everyone watches American TV and the commercials. Oh well! This will be my lowest of lows! Someone has to come in last, tho! :-)

Whoooooo just hit it again!
Hope I stay up there this time!!
