Zero comments are usually a sign of a ho-hum, "ok", shot. Nothing that the viewers are getting really excited about to comment on, nor is there anything obviously glaring that triggers a comment either.

It's also VERY early in the challenge voting. More than likely you'll get some comments before it's over. If not, follow-up in the forums afterwards for some feedback/critique.

As for confidence shaking...don't sweat it. It's rare to hit a homerun with every swing, you just have to keep after it and pay attention along the way for tips on improving/learning.

I just left comments on everything you have in your profile and portfolio. :) I can't say that very often!

After the challenge is over, feel free to PM me and I'll be happy to give you my opinion.

I finished my commenting on the Ebay challenge this afternoon. I'll be starting to vote this one tomorrow. I'll try to comment on everything I vote on in this one, so hopefully I can at least give somebody the feedback they are wanting.

This is very interesting. I am running a strong race for the brown, yet of the 4 comments 3 are favorable (one even scored it an 8) and the other is relatively neutral. I knew I was in trouble when I chose to do something intentionally different. The voters on this site are pretty much locked into a few styles that are constantly presented. Going outside the box is risky business. (Not that I think my photo is all that terrific. In fact I considered reworking it to fit with the norm and get rid of what I expected would be objectionable, but chose otherwise just to see how it would be received. Now I know. It's just not nearly as bad as the score indicates IMHO.) I'm collecting 1 to 4 scores like there is no tomorrow. That one 8 is going to look pretty lonesome on the graph. Oh well...come on brownie. Daddy needs a new ribbon.

Thgis is my weirdest challenge ever. I'm getting hammered by the few comments that I've gotten.....as I understand both the actual title "Beauty in the Everyday" and the Wabi-Sabi definition: "look at the everyday, the commonplace, and find the magic and beauty in the ordinary; the perfections of the imperfect", my entry should have been pretty much spot on. It's simple, benign, and ordinary, yet it's simplistic presentation and benign qualities seem to have not translated from my mind into the voters' on ANY level.

Well I was about 5.56...now I'm disqualified, looks I've been naughty.

I enjoyed voting this challenge - some very creative and interesting interpretations! I commented on some, but not all - if I missed you and you want a comment, let me know after the challenge closes.

Jeffrey! My thoughts echo your thoughts...

I have to say that this challenge is different for me because the comments are longer than the usual, and very much appreciated!! All the commentors are my heros...;-)

I'm just clinging to a 6.21. This is a tough challenge, with scores sliding all over the place!

I will never understand... Started out strong 5.95 with around 30 votes, picked up speed and got to 6.10...received 7 positive comments and have been dropping like a rock all day today from 5.97 to 5.77 over the past 10 votes or so.... I don't know why I look!

Well, I'm going to post and see if I go up or down. Great comment but only 4? That is low. Good luck everyone.

I knew it! I knew it! I knew it! You must not post scores- as soon as I posted the last score-I updated and it went down. That is so funny! I have way to much time on my hands today. :)

Many thanks to my 100th voter who pushed my score to the crest...6.0000!

With 9 comments and 1 fav...I'm quite content...:-)
