Didn't enter but plan to vote on all. Year of the cat, maybe, but definitely the year of the sunset pictures. :-)

About halfway through, and since I have the day off today, I'd best get back at it... Some very good stuff there!

Go figure.

Reality: 4.75

<sigh>

Well, yet another image which I think is great and is getting a medium scoring. I thought I'd at least break a 6 for this one... oh well.

Getting a little better. Hopefully I have a good thumbnail for boosting, cuz I'll get lost in the shuffle otherwise...

Dismal. Hovering around the 5.1 to 5.2 range.

However, those kinds of scores are what I've come to expect in the Free Study contests on this site, so I'm actually not disappointed by it. It's quite a bit more challenging to score well in these imo, especially the big ones. Images that would otherwise be considered good get overlooked for the real "wow" shots or just plain lost in the crowd. My image is one that I had posted in my portfolio months ago and that received a bunch of very positive comments, and the one comment I've gotten so far in the challenge is a glowing 10. My first few votes last night were all higher than 8. So I know my own fondness for the image isn't totally misguided.

It's a fun contest to vote on though. I'm taking my time, working through a few at a time, so as not to speed-vote past the more subtle beauties. There's plenty of great work, and it's a privilege to compete with you all. :)

If the cat is in the form of an attractive woman then yeah it will be the year of the cat. I'd be shocked if a photo of an attractive woman doesn't ribbon in this and I haven't even looked at any of the entries yet.

I will be perfectly honest here - I have yet to see a shot that has knocked my socks off let alone made me say "wow!"

How can you be done with day two of voting when the challenge hasn't even been up for 24 hours yet?
01/16/2006 05:13:03 PM · #196
I'm huggin' around 5
01/16/2006 05:18:41 PM · #197
Voting/commenting this challenge could be a part time job. I'm happy because my shot is hanging around 6.0 (for the first time in MANY moons). I'm also happy because one of my new-member acquaintances has a shot entered that I think is tremendous. I can't wait to see how he's doing!

really? I have seen a couple that I love
01/16/2006 05:25:45 PM · #199
Wow I really think my average vote will be going up after this one. Their is some amazing work here.
01/16/2006 05:26:49 PM · #200
None yet and about half way through the lot.

What really is bothering me is that this shot has taken two first places and one second and one third in outside competitions. Here it is sinking faster than the Titanic going from a 4.9 this morning to a 4.4.
