Respectable, and the comments are good.

And:

You have rated 204 of 205 images (100%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 20 images (10%) in this challenge.

Will try to comment some more in between decorating and cleaning (YUCK) and everything else I'm supposed to be doing.

If this were a horse race I'd be entering the far turn in last place.

Aw, don't let it get you down... I have a few really terrible scores (not that yours is realllllly terrible) under my belt, like 3 point something! I think even the people with the most ribbons have a few entries like that too :)

Just to put my score into perspective, I've been posting since 2005 and only two of my photos have scored worse than my current score. And if that is not graphic enough...if the voting were done now my current score would end up lower than this gem:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/497/120/337440.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/497/120/337440.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Looks like I kind of missed Wabi-Sabi. I managed to find "...the everyday, the commonplace, and ... the imperfect" of Wabi-Sabi. I just forgot to "find the magic and beauty". LOL.

Yeh, I looked at your profile before posting. What I meant to say is... Sometimes we all get a bum score - sometimes it's glaringly obvious why and sometimes it isn't.

Once the challenge is over and we get to see what is what, I'll give you my honest opinion on your shot... if you like of course.

P.s. Nice portfolio you have there.

Score below my average, comments basically critical, but ostensibly helpful, yet this image I find most serene and pleasing such that I care not how it does......I must have actually gotten the Wabi-Sabi context for myself.

Heh! I've been around long enough that I remember that entry! :-) And I've got the same thing going now in the eBay challenge - apparently I missed the mark entirely and it will end up the cellar of my entries. Such is the joy of DPC!

I seriously don't think most of the entrants saw much past "beauty in the every day." They didn't go further and study or even look at what wabi sabi is or means. OH well.


Originally posted by levyj413:

Well, Judy, you've been around long enough to know that most people don't even read the description, much less go look up obscure terms.

You talking about the entrants or the voters?

Originally posted by levyj413:

Well, I agree it sucks that people don't, and it also sucks when the title and description don't match. But hey - at least you're learning the lesson now after only a few entries. :) If you ever consider an entry that meets the description but not the challenge title, don't enter it. Or enter it, but know many people will tell you that it doesn't meet the challenge.

Yeah......you have to admit, the idea of making the title "Beauty in the Everyday" and then offering Wabi-Sabi as a description of that is kind of off-putting.....it sort of redefines the concept of the title.

without comments, i'm not sure what to think. i hope it's not me that misunderstood the challenge, but i also hope i didn't just take a technically 'bad' photo. either way, my confidence is a little shaken.

I wouldn't worry too much about it judging from the commentary in this forum. It seems that there is more missing the mark than hitting it.

I believe to have found the beauty in the every day, but the photo is being kicked on a minor element.
