I am beginning to wonder why the hell I even bother!! Not a high scoring shot, but 4.1?? WTF! Either the voters are crap, or I am?? Sooner this 30D is sold, the better. Maybe I will forget challenges and buy a P&S for family snaps.

$25 is not much, but I can be humilated for far less!

I think the majority of entrants are getting scores less than they expected/deserve. I just got a 1 vote. If I could talk to that voter I'd challenge them to justify it.


I feel your pain. I too thought I would be doing much better. I was really excited about this photo. I checked both your portfolios and you have wonderful photos. I think the voters are just harsh for some reason.

Taking a terrible dive during the course of the day. Down over 1.5 points from over a six at 8 a.m. with 31 votes to under a 5 at 4:46 p.m. with 54 votes.

Wow, that hurts. I usually figure by 31 votes there won't be much more than a .5 change in score.

Please don't tell me you are upset about a 6.7


No, I'm not upset about a 6.7. I said that I have never had a score drop like this.

See. I put it in bold letters.

I've gone to bed with 7s several times only to have the entry finish in the 5s. Those early voters are mavericks. And it works the other way around too.

Yeah it was just nice to see a 7 for awhile but I'm expecting it to be mid 5'ish by the end, I'm just having fun with with the little fantasy high scores before they return to my usual form. LOL

Oh please! You don't need to apologize. Post away. This is my 40th challenge and I still find it exciting and I've posted in this thread numerous times.

Have fun, and congrats on your first challenge. Good luck.

edit to add: Besides, on further review I have found that your last name is Sullivan so that makes everything O.K. ;)

Really? It's interesting that others have such different experiences in regards to their scores. Most of my entries do that.

I'm surprised to hear that. After 10 to 15 votes I went to bed last night with a score of 7.5xx. I woke up this morning to 7.05xx and when I left for work an hour later it was down to 6.7. I've seen my score fluctuate before but never by almost a full point.

This seems to be a yo-yo challenge. I've also been all over in your same range, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Yakatme
