Alain, I'm pretty sure neither of us thought we'd be where we are now in the FSM at the start of the year! I'll be happy with a top 20 finish and over the moon if I stay in the top ten!


I'll second that sentiment! Something about doing well is stressing me out a bit. I signed up for the FSM just to force myself to keep taking photos and keep on entering. Looking at the scores each month is putting the pressure on me to not let me down each month!

That's why your score went down so much - that was 21.gif Alain's vote getting scrubbed. :) Actually I wouldn't worry about this - it was only after the fact. If voting was disallowed on any images where you know who they are, 21.gif timfythetoo would never get ANY votes. :)

I'm looking forward to next month - got a new lens (well, I'm suspicious anyway...there's a courier box arrived today which my wife won't let me look inside of, and my birthday is this weekend, and...ahem...I did have to place the order myself. All the clues are adding up... :)

And I'm going to the south of France for a week. So, 21.gif Alain, don't get too comfy up there on the mountain. :)

Still disappointing but I'd take the 5+ then 4.x any day ;)

I'm ecstatic! At about 4:00 yesterday afternoon, I was at 5.8......and REALLY unhappy about it 'cause this is a decent image. But at 53 votes, it seems to have rallied!

what would you say is a good "middle of the road" average score for a free study? I see lots of people ranging from 4-7 in scores, so I'm assuming a mid 5 would be considered good or am I wrong?

Well I've finished voting now, and I gave an average of 5.5369, but I think this month has an exceptional standard.

Not doing too well over here, but 2 positive comments, and no suggestions on what is lacking about it.

I'm pretty happy. I've been steadily climbing since yesterday morning, so I hope that trend continues. Who knows, I could even potentially reach a 6 at that rate. (Or, now that I've publically posted, people could be mean and petty and take us all into free falls!) Sorry. I've doomed us all.

wow--if this can get above 5.37 and hold, it will be a new personal best. And, yes, sadly, 5.37 is my personal best.... (and, IMHO, achieved on the worst ever of my challenge entries!! )
09/02/2008 12:53:25 PM · #172
Yippee I got a favorite - I think I need to focus on the favorites number more than score this time :-)

Fingers crossed the voting continues in the right direction after watching it fall from a high of 7.3 to a low of 6.2 - its done some travelling!

I just really really want to break into the 6 category. I kind of made a point of going for a 6+ on challenges... think I may have missed it on my second one out of the gate! ARGH!

You will probably nail that first 6 on a shot that you personally think is so-so.

Added: just looked at your profile, and your only challenge entry is a 6.21. And I see a lot of 6+ stuff in your portfolio. Not sure you will have much trouble there, but I'm not understanding your comment now...
