I 've got even more! nine 1's!

The SCRUBBER!!!!

If a person votes on your image, it shows immediately. But if they don't vote on 20% of the images, their votes go bye bye.

There may be some other criteria for removing votes too, but that's all hush hush.


Thanks Hawkeye... I forgot about that!

Better than I thought. Hoping it might squeak past 5.9525 which would replace my 5th image on profile page.

I'm surprised that my entry is going to finish over 5. Although the comments were suggestive that at least 10 people "got it" and loved it, I'm certain they have helped keep me, in part, over 5. If only I could get consistent 6s...more practice.

new question; in basic editing is it legal to create a background layer by copying a part of the image, free form it to fit the screen, & use it for the background layer?

I think differently for everyone. But I have noticed that when I reenter and before I start voting, I get the same pictures first!

well, it looks like I'm going to get a new personal best from this challenge and my first score above 6

Holy cow, I'm going to close over 5.0? I figured a 4.8 at best.

I don't see how this could be true, since the pic is available for voting from submission through end of voting (even during DQ examination/qualification) and nobody knows which shots are being looked at for DQ.

I was under DQ control. I passed the test... I was hoping that they should revise my score too... but they did not... well I am still in game anyway!!!
The 7 comments were pretty nice and encouraging so far!! That counts..


How did you expect the score to be revised?
