I started out at 6.0 with seven votes, now:

It is NOT a mediocre picture, it's got decent composition and concept, of course there are no comments so I can at least get a handle on why it's bombing, and I'm REALLY irritated 'cause the one I wanted to enter, that I knew would get panned 'cause flower shots don't do well in Free Studies.....well, I'm just sick of trying in these friggin' Free Study challenges.

I'm thinking of recanting on my earlier good sport comment. I'm not a good sport when I get slammed on a decent image......you'd think I would know better after getting a sub-6 on my entry last month that won a local photography contest.

Started on a 6 went south . .

I probably won't bother following my score too closely on this one . . but I do want to get in and do some commenting on the others. At first glance there are some very strong shot's in there.

I originally predicted a score of 4.1, seems to be holding pretty close. However I am a bit insulted. Not only by the low score, but also one of the comments, paraphrased below...

"Hmm, I can't stand this image."

Doesn't say why, no clue why this person hated it enough to comment as such. shrugs... I think I'm with NikonJeb on this.

I wonder if I should request its removal, it is cruising to be in last place at this rate.

HotPasta -your comment on my shot was really helpful and very kindly worded, even though it pointed out the shots obvious (now, anyway) flaws. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Aw cheer up ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' NikonJeb the Free Study keeps us humble. My score dropped a whole point overnight & will continue to drop as time goes by. I'm waiting to see whether a landscape wins. Flowers never win. Landscapes often do. I don't know why photographers hate flowers.

Ditto here. So far it's the only comment I received, and at least when I woke up and saw my score for the first time, I had some idea why. I knew I was taking a chance with my entry. So thanks!

Hey, I LOVE flowers, and flower pictures, and I'm a photographer. I even entered one in the April FS and it didn't do too badly. Hmm, after looking back at my FS entries this year, they all involved flowers or trees. Except the current one, which doesn't happen to be floral, but I didn't give any thought to its lack of florality till now.

Dang, I'm rambling; better go have another cup of coffee and clear the brain a bit.

Jeb - go look at your Boat entry again, it'll make you feel better :-)

If this drops below a PB for me, I'll just die.
