Yes.....I have made a great start on commenting and voting on the current "Bokeh" challenge. I plan to vote & comment on every entry.....

I have completed 22% so far.

I am very pleased with some of the results, but some really haven't grasped what "Bokeh" is about. I am scoring everyone very fairly and have surprised myself with the number of high votes.

Some excellent flower shots, and some not so excellent, but they seem to balance each other well..... I will get back to the voting and commentimg tonight..... All the best everyone.....

Sigh.. Always happens when someone decides to comment on all that I don't enter :(

I'll try to vote, but probably won't have the time to comment on very many before flying out to Fiji. I'm utterly in awe of the images, though. So many stunning photographs, I don't know where to begin! One of the first pics I saw was a glass of something with a slice of lemon, and the bokeh in that picture was truly magnificent in it's enhancement of the subject. I'm completely blown away by y'all!

UPDATE...UPDATE... Well, I am slowly getting through some more "commenting" and "voting", in this "Bokeh" challenge.....

I have now commented and voted on 258 images, and thats now 60% of the vote.....

I hope I get some more done tomorrow..... I will do it, as I have set my mind on it.....

Quotation marks are not for emphasis. In general, they call into question whatever they surround, and suggest that it may not be true. So, in this case it seems you are saying that you did not really vote on 258 images. It suggests that you lost count or that you are exaggerating the number. I only mention this because I know that's not what you mean.

Sorry, my grammar isn't up to standard.....

Great work Shez. As always. Thanks for the comment on mine. As things are going it may be the only one.

Keep it up. I've only commented on half a dozen or so, so far.

Please, no apologies. We're all doing the best we can.

Thanks Sherpet, just got your comment, one of the only three that I've gotten.

Thanx again!

And just so they could rub salt in your wounds, the powers that be decided to spell it grammar! Bastards!

Doc I sent PM
06/22/2006 07:26:17 PM · #21
I am a little saddened, and now feel left wondering if it is worth saying anything in threads anymore. I feel that what I wanted to say, has become overshadowed, and now seems to become a correction in the proper way of spelling or grammar, rather than the subject at hand. I am a little hurt, and feel maybe it not worth it. I apologise for any errors in this thread or this message.....
06/22/2006 07:34:25 PM · #22
Don't sweat it sherpet, I think the Dr. was kidding. I await your comment and will gladly accept it even if not grammatically correct and even if misspelled. I always said the best upgrade they could do here would be to add spell check to the treads!

I can't spell worth a darn. Don't let that stop you.

By the way thank you for your comment I really appreciate it. :-)

Yeah the Doc must have been kidding! :-P

Keep going, Shez... my only hope in Bokeh is that I'll get a comment from you!! :-)

And Doc was just being silly. You can't take a man seriously who looks like this, now can you? I mean, just look at those shorts...
