Starting with 5.33 in the morning, I'm pleased with the evolution I have so far.

Not what I'd expected. Can't wait for the post-challenge discussion, though. :)

It looks to me like a low scoring challenge... Where are the 7`s?

I'm sure they are there... they're just holding their breath and possibly are a bit too light-headed to post ;-)

I'm with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Noisemaker. No 7's would be a good thing in this one. (Unless, I can climb up there myself! :)

Yeahhh me too! I`m not saying my score, not `cause it is on ribbon territory, wich of course is not, but just because everytime I post it, it drops...

I think I recognized Larus picture... And yep, he must be around 7, but someday I will have my ribbon.. someday...

okay...people who think something that something really isn't, but you're not sure...think about it first. Please don't score down on something that you think just may be something unrealistic. Sorry, but at first I thought it was funny, but now I'm getting a little aggravated that people would score down on something that they are not even sure about.

I'm trying to be vague here so I don't make anyone upset...but please just think before you vote. Also keep in mind that it's Expert Editing. Thank you.

Its hard to climb out of a hole when the trolls have dug it so deep.
Maybe I Should just stroll through and give every one a 10... wink wink nudge nudge say no more.

I could use one of those 10's. Mine is the one with the frame $*(#% and it has a %*@$^&^ in it. You'll know it when you see it.

This just in ( I think I've had the best comment yet! )

"This is not a photograph. This is digital art. This is my vote against the new rules set. Sorry... "

Now how about that for a goodnight comment (for it's 1.20am here in my bit of the world). I don't think he/she is "sorry" at all - the Whole point of this rules set is that it is a separate challenge altogether.

Surely: if you don't like the rules in Expert Editing, then don't look at the challenge, don't submit and don't vote in it. But if you do decide to participate in it on any particular level then allow for the variance in editing tastes!!! DPC offers a HUGE variety of platforms to submit to - this is just one of them and you don't have to like it, but don't down those of us who do! Wondering if this voter has marked up all those who have submitted to this challenge who have not demonstrated "expert editing" skills?

Mine is too abstract for the voters I think. After all, I decided to fill the frame with a single frame. (Actually I didn't but that would have been cool). One comment was that they needed to see the title before they knew what it was.

Oh well...you win some and you lose some and on some you should've stayed in bed and called in sick. :)

Man! Sorry, I missed that thread (how did you know it was the same guy - and I didn't post his username to avoid embarrassing him! Must be the volume of other threads I've been watching in between preparing for my littlest one's party tomorrow (well today really since it's 1.30am and I've just finished icing the cake!)

okay, I'm just going to take myself off to bed now. It's been a HARD week with scores now frozen at: 5.3 5.6. 5.9 and 6.3. I'm down and disheartened and Mr Cool's comment took the biscuit.

BUT seeing a whole thread dedicated to the healing of wounds inflicted by him, I take courage.

I need some sleep: need to be strong to entertain a garden full of 5 year olds in the morning in 40 degree C heat! ooooo just had an idea for a table shot :-)

further to this, this is from this thread. as i say at some length below, we need to stop and think about how and why we are voting.

...My opinion about art and photo art is just my opinion. I like to discuss art. It's important to understand *why* some image works or does not work. To illustrate my points I need sometimes use examples from other members of DPC, which sometimes upsets them. Are you saying that we should not publicly discuss our dislikes of others' work? There is an educational component in such discussions, for holders of either opinion.

...The question here is whether the methods matter, given that the final image looks natural and does not give them away. This is an interesting question, and my response, for now, is "yes, they do", at least to me. However, I need some time to find a logical backing for this claim.


i think both of these extracts are important, both for you, arcady, and for everyone on dpc (myself included). we are all discussing art, which is a subjective thing, prone to the vagueries of emotions and opinions. however, if we are to truly critique, learn and grow in our chosen art form (and any others we may be practice (i'm a painter and drawer (can't say draughtsperson - i'm nowhere near that technical))) (too many parentheses), we must balance our subjective reactions with objective, rational thought.

of course we all believe in our work, and our opinions of ours and others'. but this is art, not a science. there are very few things in art that are 'Right'. we need to be able to balance what we see with a knee jerk reaction with what a rational analysis of the displayed work shows.

neither can work in isolation. we need both passion and logic. we need to carefully examine why we believe something aobut an artwork. do we dislike because it is actually poorly done (and yes, there is a lot of bad art out there)? or do we dislike it because it is outside of our experience, sensibilities or comfort zone? if this is the case, then we need to step outside ourselves to critique the work, as we should also do with images we like. neither outright condemnation nor wholehearted approval are helpful in the long run. very few things are either completely bad or good.

so, to finally come around the to points you made - yes, it's good to use others' work as object examples, but one needs to use rational and logical argument, and constructive criticsm to truly affect some sort of dialogue. otherwise, all one achieves is a vitriolic spouting which teaches neither oneself nor others anything. when one is harshly ciritcised, in an aggressive manner, one stops listening. when criticises harshly, one has already stopped listening. neither extreme allow room for growth and development. and surely that's what being an artist is all about.

your second statement quoted here, i think, is vital. we must consider our opinions, and discover the reasons we hold them, before putting them forward as fact.
