Pop me in.

Me, me!!
01/01/2008 03:08:00 PM · #4
Pop me in as well. I was over a six this morning but have since plummeted to a 5.1!
01/01/2008 03:22:30 PM · #5
I am so in. My FS entry is tanking in a HUGE way. And I love it!!! (the photo, not the score)
01/01/2008 03:29:32 PM · #6
It appears I will be well below a 6, so I am in. At this rate, possibly sub-5.
01/01/2008 03:37:39 PM · #7
Count me in - I would love to participate. I absolutely adore my image, but apparently the DPC voters don't.

This is something i don't like. In order to stay motivated in photography i need to shoot what I like. But here everything us geared around competition and the most commonly pleasing image. :(

Either way I'm learning more and more which helps me make what I like to shoot look better.

Karen...let me tell you if this is scoring 7.9834 then it doesnt count as tanking by out standards ;-)

01/01/2008 04:17:16 PM · #10
Deb, I think I need to be in this! Once again, my best shot for ages is bombing fast. If it hits 5.5 I will dance nakkid on my web cam!!

On second thoughts, my photo appears bad enough! Wouldn't subject you all to that sight:)

Unfortunately I don't have a December free-study shot, but Deb, I really love this idea.
01/01/2008 04:55:58 PM · #12
Yeah! Thanks Deb.
01/01/2008 05:02:40 PM · #13
I woke up with 6.0 something. Had 3 positive comments within my first 10 votes and slowly it has gone down all day. Down to 5.4 now. (I love it though!)
01/01/2008 05:06:31 PM · #14
I like this idea! I don't enter as many challenges because I love my shots too much to put them through the challenge voting abuse. :-( I started out above a 6, but I am below a 5 now. :-(
01/01/2008 05:33:00 PM · #15
Put me down for this, I totally love my shot but it appears the voters don't.
01/01/2008 05:53:16 PM · #16
Thus far, I've got my highest scoring entry to date (not that it means anything). But I'll still be below a 6 unless there is a major swing in voting!

Count me in! The more constructive criticism the better!
01/01/2008 06:01:11 PM · #17
Count me in
01/01/2008 06:03:50 PM · #18
I'm in to. Sounds like it might help me see why it is tanking so horribly. Last night after it got 3, 4's ands then a 5. it started to look lousy, even to me.
01/01/2008 06:08:05 PM · #19
Add me. I'm tanking in the voting.
01/01/2008 06:09:21 PM · #20
I'm in!!!
01/01/2008 06:22:32 PM · #21
Count me in... I really love my shot. :)
01/01/2008 07:24:43 PM · #22
Count me in. I was gonna ask for input afterward anyway!
01/01/2008 07:26:32 PM · #23
Looks like my score qualifies. Serves me right for not shooting a deer head.

I got a 4.3 which is close to my goal of a 3 but I guess I can't complain..
