Higher than my average...so I'm happy. Was up to a 5.9 for the longest time...but dropped to a 5.3 yesterday and has climbed back up to this.

Just for the record - I've seen lot's of pictures that were worthy of 10's. I voted
as I would of if I wasn't in competition with them. At least I'll be able to sleep
at night..

Very weird.
I've watched my scores drop in Triptych and have been passed up in single light source, almost to the point of reversing scores.
Just shows that ya' never know....

I've been as low as 5.1 and for a brief glorious hopeful 10 minutes I had a 6.0. Currently sitting at:

I'm off to comment more and hopefully I'll hit DrAchoo's!

Just wanted to thank all those people who have been giving out 2s the last couple of hours. Just because you probably don't like the subject doesn't mean a decent photo deserves a 2.

this is CRAP..

now, I know I have a legit lighting source, and a decent composition of the shot, I know this b/c all my comments have told me so yet i drop from high-mid 6's to mid-low 5's.. what is goin on here, not one bad comment, not one comment suggesting to fix anything.. nothing to explain why the drop in the score.. someone just going through and givin lots of ppl 1's and 2's?
11/19/2005 12:11:19 AM · #188
All-in-all I would say I was disappointed with the challenge. I gave 1 10 and 6 9's...
11/19/2005 12:11:29 AM · #189

Knowing that it's happening to everyone makes me less inclined to sweat it.

I've dropped almost 1.5 points since my 50 vote score.

I feel like Pink--completely mizundastood in this challenge. :( Thanks to the ppl who commented, however. Made my day! :)

I didn't enter in this challenge but from what I'm seeing in the other I did enter in the low scoring is everywhere .. makes me wonder what is going on!

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.

A score (whether high or low) IS a comment. If you get no other comment beyond that, consider the default to be "your photo is unremarkable."

Lack of a comment IS also a comment.

dropping every day... but it looks like it will be one of my 'favourite' finishes - right in the middle. As Kat mentioned, and very true - this photo is probably unremarkable.

I hope that the troll-buster algorithm will increase my score by a 10th or so in the end...

I have an image that's precisely what I wanted it to be when I took it. It breaks no rules of composition, it's cleanly lit by a single light source, it's technically competent in every way, and it's scoring below 4.8. I knew it wasn't going to be a top finisher, but I'm a bit surprised to be under 5. So it goes...

I agree with Dr. Achoo. Seemed like high numbers were hard for me to find, but a lot in the 6-7 range.

Just wanted to say a huge thankyou to the person that just gave me a '1'. You are so thoughtful and obviously you are a master in photography. So much so that you didn't think it was worthy of explaining your big '1'.

I must keep an eye out for your image....it must be the only image in the whole challenge that will finish with a perfect '10'.
11/19/2005 08:36:28 PM · #200
Interestingly 5 minutes later I received a 10. Now that just goes to show the huge range of tastes on this site. Love it.
