Well the top 5 shots all coming in at 7+ with a host of new ribbons and PB's.

I think overall we should declare the challenge a success, especially in light of how low the general scoring has been recently.

Congrats to all who did well and commiserations to all those who didn't do as well as they hoped.

My punishment for shooting an 'Ewwww' as opposed to an 'OOOOHHH' or an "Awwwwww'. But at least my critter is an out-of-control, wild 'ewwww' shot in its own environment.


Now this is really nasty, I voted on all the shots and did not see one that deserved that score. I'll check it out again after roll over.


Please do! I know it's not tack-sharp, but it certainly is an animal in motion.

I wish we could take out all the votes from today. I wonder why the last day voters are always so brutal. At least they are on all of my photos. My photos tend to all take significant nose dives on the last day. And come to think of it -- it seems I hear other people saying the same thing.

Last day voters, could you go watch a movie instead next time ? We'd appreciate it :)

You have rated 141 of 141 images (100%) in this challenge.
You have given an average score of 6.3404.


I have just gone through and voted on the spectacular "Animals in Motion" Challenge. These images are well worthy of the highest marks. I (wisely) didn't enter this challenge because those who did are fantastic.

I am content with that. :) It is just .0006 away from front page material. Even more importantly I have reached a new milestone here at dpc!

Avg Vote Received: 5.9001 Woohoo! in Jan '08 I was at 5.75. It is tough to get changes in this after you have 70 or so challenges in, so I am quite prouod of that 5.9 avg received.

I know what you mean. I started this year at 5.74, and am close to 5.9 now... I dont have as many challenge entries as you, but I am really happy at the run I've had. Must be a team Canada thing eh :)

Pete always kidding me about the great white is in for a surprise.. And Denise is a gem watching the score keeping track of everything.

who moi . . ?

Sadly I can assure you I am nowhere near the top . . but in a nice safe comfort zone probably on the second page.

No complaints from me though. I like my shot - but there are some stunners in this challenge.

Besides this is a bit like the Horse challenge, you get to meet a nice selection of people who banter good naturedly and encourage others on. This is how all challenges should be.

How about you Sara - are you headed for giddy heights ?

Fabulous score Jane - you already have a comfortable PB in the bag whatever happens - lets see if you can get a nice coloured ribbon as well !!

Really pleased for you.
