Well, my best critic bluntly told me what was not appealing about my photo. My critic is my father, who is not a photographer and is not a member of this site. Once he told me I could see what he was talking about. I did not see that when I first entered it. All I saw was that I had improved the lighting, sparkles in my model's eye and great skin. What my father said I did not show my model's best assets which are the eyes, the lips etc. He agreed that my lighting was good but I did not show the true essence of the model. I guess that is why I am getting the score I am getting. I would love to reshoot my model but the model has come down with a cold and I am not that good a photographer to hide the fact that the model is not feeling good. But I will try this again in the near future to improve on my portrait shooting.

Well, here we are 95.5 hours from the end. I am pretty happy with the scores for my first portrait submission.

I can't complain. The score popped up 1/2 point today. I am happy. All my comments mentioned the one annoying thing, among a few others. That item was due to my sloppiness in the last 15 minutes available to submit. I think there are some others that mentioned the "good enough" attitude. I have to get over that.

I can't wait for Tuesday midnight.

Great score Jon, I sense a possible second ribbon coming on. I also wanted to thank you for the most positive and constructive comment I have received on the challenge. Very much appreciated

As for me

I'm confused... an image that I gave a VERY high score to has disappeared. Must've been a DQ. What a shame!

Well there could be several reasons why it's gone... if someone wasn't doing well with it they might have requested that it be DQ'd or if they truly deserved the DQ ..ummm no compassion there I'm afraid : )

I'm praying that someone mistakes mine for a MAK image... hahaha

Looking at your work, that is quite a compliment, thank you very much *SMILE* great portfolio you have.
06/01/2008 02:01:20 AM · #115
thanks! I really appreciate it, who knows. I might have another one! That'd be great, but the comments received have really made it worth it if not. And you're very welcome for the comment, hope it helps. Can't wait to see which one was yours after roll-over :)

good luck!

You have rated 173 of 173 images (100%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 5 images (3%) in this challenge.
You have given an average score of 5.4971.

So many images with out of focus eyes or overprocessed skin tones..... :(

And lets not start on the animal pics cause how can a voter be sure it's a female ?

Do the eyes have to be sharp or the skintones natural?? I'm only asking because even though my image is doing ok (6.2 with 3 favorites) - I am getting a mix of comments that really makes me wonder if we are judging on technicality or artistry.. I prefer the latter

Most interesting stat here is the number of views (no it is not a nude) and i wonder what the average number of views on the female v male challenges would look like and what it says (if anything) about DPC

Well another way to put it is that they're out of focus and over-processed. Like you, I also prefer the artistic side but if the technicals detract/distract from the art then the viewer will likely have a problem with the image.

Regarding male and female. I am not surprised there are more entries and views and higher scores for females than males. We live in a culture and are members of a species that admires females more for their phyical appearance than anything else. Is that right? No. Is it the way it is, yes.

Still waiting for Tuesday midnight
