Watching this score is like watching a rat drowning in a bucket. It's a morbid sight, but I can't stop looking away (ie hitting update).

I now know what everybody feels like when they have 0 comments.

My first challenge and doing not well, which is actually okay, did not like any of the pictures I had taken but entered one I disliked less than the others LOL. Still in the hunt for the brown ribbon though!!

Your right a well done High Key won't blow the highlights but seems to me quite a few do.


yah - i'm giving 6's just for not blowing highlights this challenge.


Hey Mes!I need your 10! :P

I considered my picture both in color and in black and white, and decided the one I chose was a better option as far as composition. Simple as that, I choose my pictures based on three factors: relating to the challenge, how it looks, and then which one looks best.

I'm actually surprised I'm doing as well as I am since I was having technical issues.

Its not superb by any means at a 5.07 but it could certainly be worse.

I have 4 comments too which is nice, though they all reference a style choice I made on purpose (which I should have learned by now will ALWAYS be taken as an accident/mistake) but that's okay.

I don't want to be specific in case there aren't any other images that used this particular effect. I haven't yet looked at the challenge but I'm jumping in now.

Good luck to y'all.

If I see one more egg or feather I'm going to flip and give them all 1's. (Okay, except the really good ones.)
10/26/2005 07:39:45 PM · #87
Hm. I hate to say it but it seems like there ARE a fair number that don't quite meet the challenge from the description I read..

..am I being to close-minded? Too 'in the box'? I am trying to vote with a light hand and leave room for different interpretations (though the description seemed fairly specific to me) but I am a little surprised.

Maybe its just me..

I think the only "interpretive" part of this was the word predominately. Some people apparently think differently about what that means. Of course, some people didn't even get their backgrounds white, which I think is pretty non-negotiable for me.

Ok, I submitted my photo. I worked on it in PSE 3.0 and didn't really DO a whole lot to it. I was satisfied and actually a bit proud! On my monitor, it looked white on an edge and warmed to a creamy color over the rest of the image. I resized it to fit it to the DPC standards to post. My thumbnail looked as good as the original. Now, voting starts and I see these colorful blotches and a yellow cast in the image! What did I do wrong?

The "bagheads" comments were pointing out the flaws I described above but not how to fix it or maybe how I went wrong!

I am in a downhill spiral without a parachute, folks!


always check the full size version after you submit it to DPC. sometimes weird things like that happen.

Well, I know I won't stop submitting, that's for sure. I must be a masochist or something. LOL

Masochist? Well we all need a hobby... :)

I know I must be, I knew I wouldn't do well, and I entered it anyways. It's like when the caffiene stops working in the middle of the day, but you still get another cup of coffee....

Um, a little ... Are your 2 comments the same as mine?
1 - Wow, great photo!
2 - Too much white.
LOL

To Qart ... it's not a hobby ... it's a career! :)

Oh yeah .. and I agree with the egg and feather thing too! I got tired of seeing them and I saw them again in Delicate!!! eesh!!!

I had a very hard time with this too. I thought it was just me and I am glad to see it is not. White background, light color .. I didn't see alot of that to be honest. I got tired of voting to be honest and skipped directly to the ones that were light on white. I'm new, and I truly hope what I did isn't a bad thing.
