I guess images look more 'real' in black and white...must be something to do with our views of old pictures and the newspaper.

And as I predicted in the original discussion thread, Top Ten is top-heavy with black and white photos - 9 out of 10, in fact.

I originally posted mine in B&W, but found that it needed to be straightened. So I re-edited it and I decided to stay with colour because of the guy's pink shirt...

Yes I was going to be able to cross off another goal on my list (achieving a score of 6.0). late last week it began a downhill trend and continued with momentum this weekend to this...

However..... On the bright side, it is still a pb so I shouldn't be complaining.

Yep, Sunday voters just continued the Saturday trend. Went from a PB at one point to no longer a contender for my personal top 5. Still a great score, so I'm happy with it. And there's always "The Scrubber".... hopefully the grumpies were also lazies and didn't vote 20%.

Ouch ouch ouch!
Clearly some all day drinking going on and then mean scoring! Massive plunge in the last few hours...Oh well.

This sums up my feelings, too. Some very good images in there. I've never been comfortable photographing people, but seeing this challenge should help me in that aspect.

I have handed out a lot of high scores so far and am only about halfway through voting. I am also looking forward to going back through and commenting on as many as I can.

All I can say is I am headed for a new PB, and it is still climbing.....

Thank you for your comment. It helps me to understand where I may have gone wrong with the DPC voters. No matter what, I was pretty excited and happy about my capture. The DPC voters brought me back to earth. Guess some think it DNMC or dislike it for some reason as my comments tell me. Oh well!. :-/

Up from a 5.1 at the beginning...

OK, never mind. Cease voting. Sorry I asked! (Score drop... sigh.)
06/14/2007 09:17:45 AM · #23
Don't forget to vote in this one - I've been sitting on 99 votes for nearly a full day. That 100th is the one that will take me over the top! (Assuming, of course, the 100th vote is a 97.)
