We all know that a winner that scored an 8.75 three years ago cannot be compared fairly (scorewise) to an image that scored 7.25 last week. I feel this is because as the site grows or matures the voters may become more liberal or less liberal in their scoring. (I feel we give out lower scores today than we did 3 years ago.)

With that said, what is your choice for the

BEST DPC CHALLENGE ENTRY EVER?

You likely have one already in your mind. Although I am torn between several I feel the one below is the best in technical aspects and meeting the challenge. What is your pick?

Personally, I'd also go with JJ's crowd shot; stunningly good. Other candidates include:

But there are probably many I've never encountered, hidden in portfolios, that never won ribbons...

Great choices everyone-- in fact I had 3 of them in my favorites.
I think I commented that the Vulture was one of the most stunning Photo's ever displayed on DPC..

I have always been a huge fan of this photograph.

I could narrow it down to a dozen but not to one single shot.

it's hard to pick just one. but I've absolutely loved this one since the first time I saw it. I still look at it once in a while.

I recently discovered this one and it's been my big favourite since then. Very touchy one, and the title adds to the impact it has.

This is one of my favourites but of course it is hard to narrow it down to one.

The "Best DPC Photo Ever" hasn't even been taken yet. It is currently in the final stages of construction in my studio. I should have it ready very soon.

This is one photo I always have to come back to. I have a few photos on this site I like very much and to choose one as the best is difficult, but this one ranks up there with the best I have seen. Tastes differ I know but this photos hits my taste exactly.

So, the highest rated photo on DPC only received 1 comment during the challenge, and only 27 people have picked it as a favorite since 2002?

Why am I not surprised...
