That's fine if the one comment you have doesn't tell you and explain your score :)

I seriously believe this should be my highest scoring shot and will end up instead being my lowest.

Well I don't have human or animal skin in my shot, but I assume I'm being voted down because my shot sucks. I think we need to give voters a break - great shots will rise to the top regardless. Orvaratli's winning shot this week is a perfect example in my mind - an absolutely stunning image with a more tenuous link to the challenge description still rises to the top.

No offense to you personally ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Lutchenko - there is always the exception to the rule - take ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' hesitant's puzzled entry this week for instance.


I have no problem with getting voted down if my image is poor, that is only fair.
But prior to the challenge I got the opinion of several people who thought that whilst it wasn't one of my best shots that it was pretty good and should average say 5.5 ish.

However I'm getting 3s which seems to me to be DNMC style of voting but hey lets see what plays out eh

got my first comment. It was a comment that supposedly liked my image, but came with a vote of 3! Must have been sarcasm.

That is not certain. Could be the commenter didn't vote, but someone else gave you a 3 at the same time. So enjoy the comment, it is well possible that it was meant sincerely.

I'm not at all bothered though, I really, really like it! It is the first time that I have been completely indifferent to the votes an image gets. My great hope for it, is some posthumous recognition; I always enjoy the images showcased through that route. I'll see whether others think it is interesting enough and cross my fingers!

I'm surprised I haven't seen any iPod skins, I thought that would be an obvious shot?

Every challenge that I enter I feel the same... What's not so good with my photo that made it score less than 6?
People tend to vote low but don't tell why...
I still think it should be required to justify votes less than 4.

I suspect you may be surprised ;)

EDIT: Oh and probably wrong as well....


I got very low score once, because people thought it was breaking the rules and it was not... Why don't they let the validation to the council and assume the photo is innocent until the council proves otherwise?

It may be the new people that don't know there way around yet. The first challenge I voted on, I thought there was one that obviously broke the rules, and I did give it a lower score. (sorry, whoever you were! although I don't think I gave anything lower than a 5...)

So glad I edited my post ;)

The one I'm talking about has (an obvious breach of the rules in it) and most certainly isn't yours Mark lol

Must be a lot of it about - I've just received a validation request and the edit was absolutely vanilla...

At least I can pretend my low score is a consequence of people thinking it was a bit dodgy! Languishing at 4.66 at the moment!
