Whatchyoutalkinbout cindilou? Toys-r-Us wasn't open when I upgraded so the c*n*n wasn't available. ;P

Back on track - back on track!! This can't become a holy war thread hijack!

Edit:
I knew Rikki was a-funning so please don't flame him (I started it).

-and-

Score must be exact. 5.9 != 5.9001

I am surprised so many entered images that were already in their portfolios. I reconized about 7. But how can I complain I done the same thing.


Well, in my case, every decent shot I've taken has gone into my portfolio; and quite a few indecent ones, as well;) Even had I known there would be such a challenge, I would still have placed it in my portfolio. Doesn't bother me to recognize them.


Oh it doesn't bother me I just didn't think so many would do it. As I am one of those that used an image that was in my port.

I recognized quite a few, but since it's Best of 2005 I certainly can't hold it against anyone for putting their best foot forward (even if it's already been seen). I still scored them based on my opinion of the shot's merit (regardless of anonymity). :-)

Other what?

Another excellent entry in my opinion Jimmy. I believe you can tell which comment is mine. The second 10 I have given thus far.

I find myself reaching for the booze here, sigh. I conclude people are voting this challenge on the curve, and it drives me crazy. I know damned well my entry belongs on my "front page", even though I know it can't possibly make the top 50 after seeing the entries. I don't mind finishing down in the pack, but I feel like the picture freaking DESERVES a better numerical score than it is getting. I am handing out 7-and-above here like there's no tomorrow. Share the love, people! SHARE THE LOVE!

I'm sharing the love so much I feel I should be in Canada!

Each photo is being scored relative to itself - nothing else. Many 7s. 8s, a 10 already (and I've scored only 15 so far).

All you need is love.

Edit to give English a chance.

It REALLY surprises me the scores that have been posted in this thread. I went through the entrys a few times I don't think I would vote many images under 5, a few could have been bigger. I'm a pretty tough voter and use the whole scale. There are some exceptional photos and be real surprised if the blue winner was under 7.8. But then again the voters on this challenge must be real sticklers..

darn theres another one :(

How many of you guys make it a point to vote on every entry? I normally try and do that but there are soo many I'm afraid to even start.

Funny, I just found myself doing that as I read this. And to top it off I was sighing as I did it. Freaky, huh?

Since I have been here I have voted 100% on every challenge except 2.

yanko I try to vote on every photograph of the challenge I am in. I think it only fair to attempt it if you expect others to vote on yours. This one will definetly be a voting challenge. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think this is the most entries in any dpchallenge.

Bear...you are a very good photographer. These scores really don't matter.

Edited to add: I am going to try and comment on the photos that I like for whatever reason. However, it won't be critiquing. Too many for that. So my apologies in advance for those of you who don't care for short comments such as "This is a beautiful shot." That's the type I'll be giving out and I know if it was my photo, I would appreciate whatever I could get in this crowded field of entried. :)
