All of the comments have been very helpful- even the scathing ones (OUCH). With range of scores (1's to 6's um forget the 's on the 6), I think it's a sign that my concepts are carrying me in the challenges I enter. If I could just get better at pp...but that will happen soon enough given that the comments point me in the right direction.

keep the comments coming - us newbies really learn from them.

Forgot to take this in a classroom or on a school bus/campus so I guess that is killing me in this one. People take challenge descriptions too literal, especially in open challenges. :(

hmmm guess that's why they have Free Studies AND the specific Challenge topics - the challenge is to work within a topic rather than stretch it as far as it can go (you do that and you gotta know you're going to lose the voters). So you get the brief and you at the very least should consider having a vague reference to the topic in your image: Black and White, School Days, Portrait in landscape orientation, Green, wildlife, brown, diagonal, fences and so on.

Not to worry - I got VERY specific in sticking to the topic while setting up my shot and I'm still going nowhere slowly :-)

It is within the topic, however, when this thing started last night, and you can read further down the thread, people were voting low because the images did not fit the topic exactly. That was my point about my score. I am just venting because I have somehow turned my hobby into trying to shoot for a vote that shouldn't even matter to begin with. Frustrating, not to score low; just to have someone to give a vote of 1 or 2 and not have the ability to explain.

My hard drive crashed today at school. Luckily, the tech guys were able to pull stuff off my desktop AND retrieve my original photo files. Just now checked my score in Biology, and am somewhat satisfied with it.

On several occasions I have noticed posts mentioning specific or individual scores having been posted for individuals' entries. For instance: "With range of scores (1's to 6's um forget the 's on the 6)" taken from dsterner earlier in this thread. I must assume they are referring to a graphic score display such as appears on all of our photos after the voting is completed. On my home page I only receive an average score, not a graphic display. I have gone to my preferences to look for a way to enable such a display, but cannot find one. What am I missing? Thanks. Roger

Some people keep track of their average score and the number of votes and 'calculate' the types of scores that they are getting. This is an approximation and is not the actual viewing of individual scores. This approach assumes that everyone is voting just once and not revoting (up or down).

That's not enough of a hint, ribbons can come from 6.4's upwards at times.
