Are you SURE you wouldn't like that? I think they do that post-validation ;-)


Guess it depends on which one of em shows up, and what she is wearing.....

I've voted on 32% so far (and didn't enter it, by the way).

I might get tarred and feathered for saying this, but I'm disappointed.

It seems to me that a lot of people were so busy concentrating on producing bokeh, they totally forgot to produce a good PHOTO, too!

Well almost made a 6 - peaked at 5.9595, then a string of 4's and 5's and back to 5.8193

Oh well, still my 3rd best so far.

I have voted all of them and wonder how many entries there would have been without Christmas decorations at hand? But some were very imaginative as always.

You ain't the only one... I kinda hit a wall on this one. IMO the whole challenge is a dreary exercise of wading through chaff looking for wheat :-(

Tar me and feather me, go ahead!

Hey! He's VERY good at PP. It's the pre-processing you have to watch out for with him :-)

Holding steady at a VALIDATED personal worst score of 4.68

But I did just order in a nice pepperoni/sausage pizza from Garlic Jims (snowy night for going out) and it was GOODl They use real sliced italian sausage! Who knew?

The downside is that I have the number of a great pizza delivery place stored in my phone. It will be way too easy next time.

I guess pizza is now the comfort food of choice when you get low voted...

Well, so many folks were trying to crawl under the same rock last night, the idea to sit up top together and eat pizza was an easy sell :-)

Yeah, the pizza was comforting last night under the rock.

I'll gather some wood for the fire... it's going to be a long week.

3 great comments so far... thanks!!

But did you find your wheat?

bokeh, is out of focus blur (for the most part.?
If not tell me what it is...
I am questioning my photography skills and knowledge now.
12/18/2008 03:09:01 AM · #142
In terms of defining Bokeh, does it simply mean that part in focus or part out of Focus.
Or a graduation of the Focal Range over a large depth of field or even the very narrowest ! ! !
It appears too easy to take a Pic,without fully understanding the subject

Therefore, we don't know what it is, but we know when we haven't got it. A bit like Mojo then!

What a great idea for a challenge.

Woohoo!! Got up this morning and I realised my goal of a 5... lets see if it stays there!! Still cant believe I havnt got even ONE comment!! Everyone, comment on my photo!! Its the one with the bokeh in it...! ;)

As regards what bokeh is and everyone's views on it, see this link:

//www.dpchallenge.com/forum.php?action=read&FORUM_THREAD_ID=852062&highlight=bokeh

Personally I LOVE bokeh!! Its a gorgeous effect when done properly, and I love my old Minolta Beercan for its Bokeh-iness...

By the way, I've seen a few of you comment on what your last vote score was... how do you find this out? Does it tell you somewhere or are you all statistical geeks who work it out from the averages? (as I have done in the past... ;) )
12/18/2008 04:21:27 AM · #146
Multiply your average by the number of votes i.e.

votes 50, Average 4.5 = 225 points from all votes
votes 51, Average 4.5490 = 232 points, so the last one must have been a 7.

As the board updates every hour sometimes you get an update of 4 or 5 votes, so you have to average. I think you get more info if you're a member?

Edited to protect the beauty of my mother tongue.

OK, thanks. I had been doing that, but I just wondered if there was any other kind of info available that I was missing out on!

Edited to preserve the impression that I know what Im talking about...

OK, I've ordered another pizza, and another bottle of red. I am sure that I will be surrounded by pizza cartons at the end of the week, but I am looking forward to hanging out, and making new friends. :)
