No wonder Ken...vote's over 6, 12 comments and 2 faves.

If I had that, I'd be doing backflips everywhere I went.

Still my best and foggy on how this happened. This is the least amount of time I have spent on a challenge shot. 9 Shots in 2 minutes, 3 minutes to edit, post.

Nope not quittin! :-)

Must be nice...I had 90some shots, about 15 minutes deciding which 5 to narrow it down to...5-10 minutes processing each of them, then being down to 2...and swapped back and forth on those for a while, before finally going with what I thought was the best one.

Not quitting on the challenges.....you couldn't beat me off with a stick...just going to quit wondering where the comments are....obviously too much to ask for. I will just stick to the wonderful people out here that offer to comment, and get them after the fact.

Great job Ken.....I am right behind you brother....well a few cars back but still here.

I just started getting into the challenges even though I've been a member for over a year. Most of the challenge topics make it tough for this old noggin to think of anything.

This one was apparently luck looking at my track record.

There are some awesome shots in this challenge. Luck has nothing to do with it. If you took a great shot, it will show.

The only thing that has ever bothered me about challenges, are the lack of commennts. I have been trying to vote on every picture in this challenge. I usually only go after the one's that I give a 5 or lower, if I have the time.
Just want to know what I am doing wrong, thats all. Don't expect to win a ribbon at this point, especially after voting on some of these photos, but I do want to get better.

Enough whinning. Get er done.

Comments about your particular entry are either specific to that entry, in which case they are worthless in a week, or general in nature and apply to anything you might shoot.

Given the latter, there's about a thousand comments you can go sift through every time a challenge ends to glean some insight into what people liked and disliked about various shots from both an aesthetic and technical point of view. If your concern is really educating yourself, it is all there for the learning.

I go through every one at the end of a challenge and I do pick up things here and there. I consider no comment worthless except for the "5" comment. That's it "5". I have been told, if you want to learn, comment on pictures and view other comments. Sometimes we thick headed people need a little help in interpretting comments and relating them to our own. But thanks for the advice. (and no I am not being sarcastic)

I have to agree. I've been watching my particular entry with growing frustration as the score continues to creep downward. And yet I've been a member here long enough to know exactly what I shot and that it is average. Maybe I should have skipped this challenge when I realized none of my pics were really up to par. (I guess I'm just addicted to that update button.) I've learned so much from the talented people on this site that I have no reason to complain or whine. I began as a less than mediocre snap-shooter. Now I've moved up to kinda mediocre. And I aspire to just above mediocre. --Don't worry, if I get there I'll raise the bar again--

And back to the point - this site offers an incredible amount of free education on all aspects of photography if we're just willing to take full advantage.

Please note the lack of whine...

Still hanging on to my first 6 by a thread, and threads weren't allowed in this challenge so I hope I don't get DQ'd.

I'm barely hanging onto my 5.1. Got the best comment about it and its resemblance to crap!

As in the actual substance not just the subjective idea of 'crappiness'.

Made me laugh which was just what I needed after my third day of mandatory OT at work. 13 hr days are killing me!!

Luckily my stdavidson is doing better and helps to sooth the pain. ;)

And I picked up a troll comment over night. Anyone else, or was I just singled out?

What's constitutes a "troll" comment?

Did yours mention it looking like poo or something similar? If so, we can start a club!

I wont repeat the comment since it would narrow down which entry is mine, but there was a big "HAHAHAHAHAH" on it, all caps, from someone with an account less than 24 hours old and no camera. If this fits the profile of your commenter, report the jerk.

i'm sorry everyone, i'm going to admit that i voted really low on the rope challenge ... i thought the entries weren't really up to standard.

i gave one 10, one 9 and five 7s. the rest were 6 and lower! :(

disappointing challenge. :(

I got a visit from the troll fairy too. Whoever it was has some spelling mistakes so it sounds like a kid. Said I was getting a one. Others disagree, I am just about average:

Report his comment if he used rude words or behaved otherwise incorrectly. I received a comment from him too and reported it. Seems that he has fun to mock people.

(edit: typo)
