It's a little hard to figure, because not all challenges are created equal. For example, my absolute highest numerical finish is 13th with this shot: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/93/thumb/20155.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/93/thumb/20155.jpg', '/') + 1) . ', but that was in a "specialty" challenge with only 22 entries.

Of "legitimate" challenges, this one is the highest rank numerically ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/47/thumb/9713.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/47/thumb/9713.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' with a 16th place out of 60, for 75th percentile, while this ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/77/thumb/14693.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/77/thumb/14693.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' finished in the 90th percentile, though it was 22nd out of 202 entries.
06/14/2006 10:54:54 PM · #12
My highest is 10th with ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/477/thumb/318976.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/477/thumb/318976.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' which scored 6.717.

Window Framed
Avg: 6.111
Place: 36 / 177
Percentile: 80%

Green II
Avg: 6.153
Place: 43 / 449
Percentile: 91%

Self Portrait IV
Avg: 6.351
Place: 55 / 235
Percentile: 77%

So my highest averaging photo scored the worst in placement and percentile. My best placement was 36th, which is the lowest scoring of the three examples. My highest percentile has an average and a placement somewhere between the other two. People get worked up over score and place, but really the meaningful statistic for competition is the percentile - 43rd place means a hell of a lot more out of 449 than it does out of 177. ;)

5 / 190 with a 7.228 in Environmantal Portraits,
9 / 449 with a 6.711 in Green II

Thought I had a ribbon winner with Environmental Portrait. 1, 2 & 3 were arngrimur, goodman, and librodo respectively. 39 ribbons between them.

I'd like to know what is the lowest score that won a ribbon, Anyone know?

I've yet to break a 6.0, and my highest finish so far was 50th. Of course, i was thrilled with that. I can see my shots improving by leaps and bounds, but i'm not good at choosing the *popular* shots, and my PP skills need quite a bit of improvement.

had two 5th places and these next closest two without ribboning or honorable mention were these:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/442/thumb/289089.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/442/thumb/289089.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' 7th place / 95%
