Well, this is a chance for the FSM'ers amongst you to catch up! Going by last month scores I 'could' drop to 10th this month so hoping for a couple of peeps in the top 10 to score lower than me!

If this stays in this range, I will be happy. But I have had scores like these drop towards the end of voting. Crossing my fingers that it does not happen this time!

That one comment is from Enzo, who commented on ALL the FS entries. It's a nice comment, too. I'll cherish it forever, especially since it seems to be the ONLY comment I'm going to get.

I'm a bit disappointed but not as much as I was yesterday when my score was at 5.8xx. It's made an unbelievable comeback but it still is only at my average and I think that this entry is one of the best shots that I've ever pulled off. I say "pulled off" because there was a LOT more that went into this shot than what I normally do and was completely different than anything that I've done before or seen much of.

I think that it would have done better in a specific challenge meant for the subject instead of a free study. I could be wrong, but I think that voters might have a tendency to rush through 400 to 500 entries in a free study. In challenges with fewer entries, I think that voters spend a little more time per image and notice those things that make some pictures unique.

This is not a rant and I'm sorry if it sounds that way. It's my first post in this thead and just a statement about how my entry is scoring compared to what I think it would score in a smaller challenge. I think that if I was to call attention to my entry after the challenge is over, I'd probably get comments that go something like "How did I miss that?" or "Wow, I didn't notice what you did to get that shot."

I don't post those "Why didn't this shot score well?" threads (not since my second month here anyway) but I might ask for a second look when the challenge is over because I had high hopes of this shot, as well as a series of them, being a major part of my portfolio. I think that I might need to check to see if my judgement is waaaaay off here.

Thanks for your attention. Now back to the scores :)

Why do I keep entering these "Free Style" challenges when I'm clearly a breaststroker.


LOL! I did better last year, even top 20'd on the marathon. Or 21st, don't remember. This entry gave people a chuckle, and it got a fave, and that's salve for the low score:

I'm okay with this. Wouldn't be too bad for a landscape image.

Haha...welcome! Consider yourself stuck ;O)
Awesome - looks like there'll be a pack of us together (just wish we were all 1 point higher for the photo-finish)!

Hi ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' riversong, looks like a personal best in the making with that score, and maybe even a possible ribbon? Best of luck!

After a long DPC break...I'm psyched about this score, as long as it holds.
Should be my second highest rated entry, and by far (.6), my best FreeStudy score.
Maybe top 50?

It's been a tough month, so thanks for the kind comments and votes! DPC proves to be a nice distraction (when my pictures don't suck).

People, I haven't quite finished voting yet but I must say that the quality of work in this month's Free Study is beyond awesome. Some EXCELLENT work by some very talented photographers! Great job - it's a pleasure voting this challenge!

6.688 at 70 votes, but now down to 6.41. Ah well, I had been hopingthis one would grace my front page as I like it so much more than most that are there. But not to be.
