Maybe not a ribbon, but at least a bit better than it did. Oh well.

And:

My second highest score and 14th place!

Oh well, don't complain, Ursula.

Not a ribbon, but certainly should have done better than 589/610 in Duotones II:

In any other challenge this would have done a million times better, I think, but the quality of entries was incredibly high on the Self Portrait challenge.


This is one of my favorite self-portraits from that challenge, and i guess it's the most surprising placement i've seen.

But, i didn't even vote in that challenge... sorry.

I never thought this would ribbon, but I had really hoped it would do better. It was for the Noise/Grain challenge, and I really love the shot, but....

Love this thread - so many great images, some of the more memorable on the site, and of course the non-ribbon shots very rarely get the attention they deserve.

So here's another, just to keep things going ...

Too many to list. :P

Seriously, I don't live in Iceland nor do I have DrJOnes type ladies hanging around so I don't think I've ever been at a point where I expected an image of mine to have ribboned. Scored higher yes but not ribbon. Those are left for the usual suspects. Oh damn, I was suppose to be serious. Nevermind. :P

I thought I was going to get a ribbon when this hit 7.

but the winning shots all deserved the ribbons....tough challenge.

Came in 4th. My highest rated at 6.969.
Only problem was a "no editing rules" challenge that allowed for combining images to create a photo.
I think mine was one of the few that were actually straight images with minor adjustments.

Still my highest scoring shot.

I thought I had a real good shot with this in the "Reflections Without Mirrors", but I was satisfied with eleventh place.

Terrific score for an image that looks pretty much untouched out-of-camera. I'd wonder if a curves and selective color with more sharpening might have scored it higher. Maybe not. Who knows. Good picture under any conditions.

I thought I had a real shot at a ribbon with this shot, but to no avail... ;-)

I agree, absolutely; it was the most interesting shot in that challenge.

I second this whole heartedly. I kept getting drawn back to this one. Deserved a ribbon big time.

Mine was a bit too late to enter the Low key challenge, but I Im very happy with this one... what do you think, is it Ribbon worth.
Big bummer when I found out the challenge closed one day earlier then I thought.

Or this one, but there was no fitting challenge when I made it...

I love this photo for the "Passing Time" challenge, and think that it meets the challenge better than the ribbon winners did. It's a photo of someone actually passing the time.

I thought this had a shot for a ribbon in Color Portrait but at the same time, I knew a pretty girl would trump his dirty beard anyday of the week.

This one has some flaws but I thought it perfectly told the story of how rain effects people in varying degrees. I thought it was brutally clear that the rain might mean something different or more to a homeless, can collector than it would to you and me.

...an interesting note that two or three commentors found no connection with rain in this image. I'm still stunned by that but at the same time it was great lesson about who's voting on your images.

This one had around 40 comments, I was almost certain it was going to get at least an HM ...


That was another one of my "ribbon winners", I believe. I know - maybe y'all should only let ME vote... :-)
