Ok, lets see how close we come to the upcomming challenges.

I have submitted to the 'Duotone' challenge. Knowing the "tastes", and other factors of the DPC membership, I predict my submission will be a cool...

5.187 average.

What do you predict yours to be?
02/21/2006 11:49:34 AM · #2
I'm in fashion.....and I'm guessing a 6.7

:P
02/21/2006 11:52:11 AM · #3
Wow....you shooting low?

Duotone
Me...6.1 to 6.5 and a Top 30 finish.

...ya gotta be confident. LOL

I should add the competition looks like it will be stiff based on that warm-up thread. Lotta good images there.

Well if we consider that the good Doc put a hex on B&W and we have probably 500+ entries I will say mine will be 5.55 average

Over 400 plus submissions in the Duotones challenge, and the knowledge behind me from previous challenges, I will be close on the mark on my prediction.

I've no idea. My instincts have been way off on my last few challenge entries. I thought my January Free Study would be a six, and it was barely a five. I thought my Blue entry (which I meant to pull before the voting started but got sidetracked) would be on the last page and it was 25th percentile. I thought my Abstract entry would be in the middle of the pack and it was 34th percentile. I've given up guessing. I HOPE for a mid-fives or higher with my duotones entry, and around 50%. But I'm not going to predict that.

I am feeling fairly confident with my fashion entry.... I am going to guess a 5.8.

That is better than I do most of the time, but it's not getting to where my head is swelling. I would love to say I am taking home the blue... but I am trying to be realistic here! LoL

I will be happy with whatever you fine people decide.... just no lower than a 5 - please! ;)

Well if most people do what they say by not voting in the challenge that they entered. Its going to be interesting. 400 plus voting on the fashion entries and only 100 voting the Dutones.

I have entered the fashion and is shooting for the blue. but more than likely I will just break the 5.0 range
02/21/2006 12:55:25 PM · #9
i can't tell
either a 4 or a 6 --- it the fickle voters you see (or the ones you don't see ..;)

OK.

I made a big decision.

I pulled my Duotone entry, and submitted to the Fashion challenge.

I forgot about a pix I took within the challenge time line.

Oh yeah, my prediction has changed dramatically.

I forsee a 5.2 for sure.
02/21/2006 01:09:11 PM · #12
I really like my entry for duotones, but I'm not getting my hopes up because everytime I do my photo does horribly. I really hope I will break 6 for the first time.
02/21/2006 01:34:17 PM · #13
I'm in fashion and just quickly shot it today because I am fed up with not having an entry of any sort recently.
I'm hoping for anything in the 5.0 region but knowing my luck it will be about 4.7/8

I like the shot but it was literally the best of just 6 I took since my "model" is a very shy young lady who just sttod there and wasn't keen to actually pose!!! I' was grateful however just to use the camera again as it has been sitting in its case for weeks!

Hmmm, well, hoping my little tantrum pays off, I'm guessing 6.25. That's a lowball though, it could be higher.

I'd love a Top 10, but it's gonna be a challenge in what's going to basically be a free study.

Wait, maybe my goal is just going to be to beat Rikki. I need to get back on top of him. (That came out wrong.)

I submitted a photo that has no actual point in being duotone but I just like it so I had to submitt. That's why I won't be surprised with 5.something score...
Let's see

Since this challenge has been so tarnished by other threads on what is duotone and examples of duotone images. According to some old school b&w guys I know mine is duotone. Yet this is DPC, should score in the mid 4’s. Good luck everyone…….

This is my first challenge so I have no idea. Finishing in the top half would make me happy.

Hey, good luck Paul. I think any finish in the top half here is a good finish. The competition is quite high here. Have fun!

Im in fashion. I am hoping to make a 6 but I think maybe my shot is more Glamour than fashion but to me I think they are the same since you can buy a fashion magazine called "Glamour". I dont know. Anyway I hope I get a 6 but Im sure it will be another 5. Lets hear it for medocracy!

Ok guys! I am in Duotones! Let the fun begin! I am hoping for a 6.26 (just to beat the good Doctor). Let the trash talkin' begin :)

I'm in Duotones... 5.4... but I still have to figure out which picture to submit ;-)
02/21/2006 03:12:44 PM · #25
Well, the last 3 for me have been 4.8 to 5.2...need to get back over 6. Predicting a 6.27 for my Duotones entry. ;^)
