I just told my wife about this, she doesn't feel so bad now either. Sorry for the harsh judging guys, this really sucks. Some guy left a comment on a 2 vote for my wife, and didn't explain WHY he gave her a 2 just, "sorry, 2 from me."

It's people like that who make me twitch. At least give people the benefit of explaining why if you're going to comment at all. That's equivalent to just saying "This Sucks!" and leaving it at that. Completely un-constructive commenting.

But even that is better to be brave and at least put low vote in the comment, but I probably received a lot of low votes but no one commented. I'm trying to comment as much as I can. Some photos I comment more some less, It just becuase I'm maybe speechless or I just do not like the photo. BUT IT IS BETTER TO COMMENT, THAN GETTING LOW VOTES WITHOUT ANY EXPLANATION AT ALL.

Thankyou Gaja for your comment. I am pleased to see that there are some people that still comment.

I prefer to use my time to be able to vote on ALL entries, instead of using up my time on writing "does not match challenger criterias" twenty times. ..Yes I give them a 1, especially in a challenge that is so specified. How hard can it get??
- 1 SINGLE light source, check!
- ARTIFICAL light, check!
- Light your subject DRAMATICALLY, check!

BUT I agree on the fact that 1s and 2s can be a bit confusing when they have been given to top 10 shots, or even ribbons??? Envy?? Maybe that what people should write in their comment. ;-)

Well it has finally dipped below 5.0000 and plunged into the icy depths of the fours... :(

scores for light source appear to be kind of low. What do you think the winner will have?

I nosed up to 5.00 and heaved a sigh of relief, but can't hold on, as I'm back at 4.975.

When you have a single light source, and the photo is slightly grainy because of it, I'm disappointed that people don't realize that's part of the allure. OH well.................. (oh, did I give away too much??? - if I did, I apologize)

I don't think you've given out too much. I think there are some nicely done grainy photos in the challenge. :)

I've gone from 6.11 to 5.6. And I shot an everyday object from perspective I belive no one did before. It is single light source. It is dramatical. But still it is only 5.6. Damn!

Well, who cares, it's life.

Then copy it to your clipboard. Mouse in the box, hit CTRL-V, click on the score. It adds about half a second to your voting time that way. You owe it to people to whom you give low scores to give some explanation. I can see that you figure someone else will tell them, but what if everybody else thinks like you? And it's especially important to comment on low scores if that's NOT your reason... otherwise you're just trashing someone without helping them learn from it.

keeps dropping and dropping.. It's like cancer.. A very slow death...
11/17/2005 01:04:23 PM · #169

Maybe I should post a self-nude in a challenge and see if I can beat my all-time low score :-))

My score appears to have "leveled down" with two comments from the original day. One comment was basically - I love it. great photo. The other was basically - interesting picture with a couple of constructive comments. (Thanks to both commenters). But no negative comments to indicate why the score has been dropping to this new (low) level. Oh well...must be a mediocre photo not worthy of comment. ;-)
11/17/2005 11:11:46 PM · #175
well, I am about half way through voting. I have also skimmed through and voted on the ones which were sunsets etc with a nice "The sun is not an artificial light source!" comment.

We have until Tues to finish voting right?
