In advanced editing challenges where the restrictions are less limited, they are often looking for a major element being cloned out, or added. So I would be as detailed as you can. More information can't hurt you, but my lay guess is that if your dates are okay, and you didn't do major cloning or adding in something, you will probably be okay -- course, that's just a lay guess. Good Luck!

Maybe you're right...I'm flattered if this is the reason. Maybe the score would be higher if voters know the pic was validated when it is validated? I hope I don't screw this up because I forgot to add some minor detail in post processing such as removed dust spot.

You do not have to give them all of your post processing steps. If you did anything unusual it is a good idea to mention it, but you do not have to tell them every single spot you cloned. What program do you edit in? PS has an option to save the history as part of the exif in the file. The exif of course gets ripped off of the image if you use "save for web" to get a smaller file size, but your full sized edited version if you have this turned on will have all your processing steps saved right to the image itself.

Ouch Susan! gotta wonder about all those folks that give out 3 or less and never comment. That is what I call a troll. If you really dislike the image enough to give it a 3 or less, at least have the intestinal fortitude to leave a comment and explain why you hate it so much!

I think the general definition of a troll is someone who hands out 1s or 2s with no regard for the photo's actual quality or merit.

Thankyou Hawkeye. However I said "that is what I call a troll". I was not debating the makeup of the generally accepted troll. ;)

So far much higher than I had antcipated and a fav. In the context of the quality of the images in this challenge that makes me very happy.

Early voters have been very generous - I anticipate a steady (or possibly rapid...) decline from now on:

Status: We need proof that your submission is valid. Please waste no time in submitting proof.

My first request for proof of original photo. Not sure what to make of it. Any advice in sending over a proof request is appreciated. Not sure how detailed they need me to be. The shot lokks simple but was very difficult to get. I'm thinking this is why the request was asked for?


Speaking from the experience of doing this myself, I just sent the original file, uncropped and unedited, then described the post process which was pretty simple and let them judge - it's not hard. Even at the Advanced Editing level, the actual editing process is simple and easy to keep track of and you can tell what's been done to an image just by comparison.

My only complaint about the process after having two of these (and I've only entered two) questioned, is that they don't tell you what the original complaint or question was. Personally, I'd like to know why an image is being questioned just for my own curiosity - I don't need to know who, just the what.

And they are really good and timely in returning the verdict.

Later,

Tom

I haven't gone into comment phase yet, but from viewing the images, the majority of them are outstanding. I agree - a great job by the participants.

score is pathetic....I did get a couple positive comments, though..
My very first entry scored way better than this and it actually had the date on the picture itself....times have changed....

Climbed to 5.25 now with 6 wonderful comments! Thank you :)
04/27/2009 05:08:52 PM · #71
I'm slightly torn

6.3333 with 3 comments and a favourite, but I've just noticed a horrendous mistake I made editing. Hope no-one else does.

Two of the three comments are pretty critical - I am amazed the score is sitting above 6!

My hero has arrived and resuscitated life into my photo by marking it a FAV...::BEAMS::

Many thanks!!!

I admit that my entry is not perfect, but it clearly did not deserve the '1' bomb I just got. Still above 6.2, but these trolls can just be annoying...
