I don't mind posting, but every time I post, my score drops, and it has dropped enough tonight! (I'm really not complaining, it was just that 6.528 was so incredibly exciting... it was sad seeing it go down)

edited to add, gotta disappear for awhile. back to see the rollover!

Yeah there are some nasty voters hoping to lower some scores out tonight. I have dropped about .1 today. And It all happen within the last 10 votes or so. and I have 205 votes or so

Same is happening in Flora. Because it looks like it's across the board, I'm guessing that the voter scrubber is going to be working overtime tonight.

Well mine should be easy to find once the challenge ends shortly- just look for the last page or two. One of my worst scores- even if not one of my worst pictures. I thought it was interesting. My mom said it was a nice picture (just kidding!).

Mine dropped below a 6, but I just re-gained it. I'm in danger of losing it again on rollover - fingers crossed!!!

Some very good competition in this challenge. I just went through them and commented on some. I didn't vote on any though.

Anyone notice how many good images got a lot of ones, looks like some voters did not understand the challenge. Even the first place image got 4 ones which is equal to the total number of ones in the top 20 Flora entries combined.

according to a different thread, I think some people were voting on fauna being indigenous fauna. So my theory is some people voted low on captive animals. Silly. Wiki says it's animals found in a specific time or place--but they don't specify which time or place--so everything counts in my mind!

People are funny, they always look for a reason to vote images down rather that the other way around. Mine was shot in the wild and still received 6 ones, so if people are trying to guess if it is a zoo shot they are not very good at it....lol

Maybe someone could explain my image getting freakin 11 scores of 1???????????????? WTF? I guess I am not really paranoid after all...they really are out to get me!

I am seriously wondering about this place...what a bunch of bullcrap!!!

The one thing I've noticed, is that people seem to get tired of the same type of shot. I've only entered 2 bluebird shots in challenges, but since I have a lot on my profile, I already have a reputation as a bluebird person and people are looking for them. It could be some people are trying to send a message to switch topics (personally, I think a comment is an easier way!)

Ya, I saw yours when I was looking at all the nice images with ones, really is sad that such a nice image gets dinged because voters can not understand the challenge. I bet you got a lot of comment telling you why they gave you 1's though.....

hahaha, exactly! Yet another reason dpc really needs to make the comments MANDATORY when voting a 3 or less.

I totally agree. Of course the shots of northern lights and water drops by some people seem to keep doing well all the time....

You wont like the comment either, if a voter gives a one on a nice image that clearly meets the challenge then it is not likely their comment with be worth much either! Just part of the game.

True enough, but then it forces them to be accountable for being a troll.

I don't think that just the fact that I used a zoo shot is the reason I finished in 195th place. I tried something different and more artsy and not in focus and paid for it. But I am not really disappointed. OK- I am a bit. But I am not going to fret over it or stop trying to do something not always like everybody else.
Eleven ones, 32 twos and six tens.

Hi Wendy, Congrats on your PB. I accept my defeat in front of everyone in our HTH knock out. But do not get used to it ;o)

I find that I'm voting sunsets harder than I was when I first started. Since our sunsets were boring, it was easy to impress me. Now I'm not so easily impressed.

Thanks! Why don't you go post you postcard score, and I'll post mine. From the way things were going earlier, I think we'll need a tie breaker when all is said and done.

Are you going to participate in Crayon/color pencil? I didn't shoot anything yet, but was planning to enter. If you are participating, let Crayon/Color Pencil be tie breaker?

Overall I'm happy with my first submission. There were a couple of comments about adjusting curves and tone, never having done much in Lightroom does anybody have any suggestions on where to start with this?

Thanks!
