Nothing like variety to keep life interesting ;-)

I'm beginning to wonder if I'm the same person. I should request an investigation.... :-)

I now return you to your scores, particularly those of you cookin' up some personal bests!

You should request validation, not an investigation... :P

Only 1 of my last ten was under 5 so I guess I am doing ok lol. I thought this one was going to be under 5 but for some strange reason it bounced up...

Thanks for the feedback. I sent the original RAW pic and my editing process. I asked for the original complaint also so I guess I won't be receiving a reply. It would be nice to know what the complaint was about but being that my pic doesn't look processed I'm figuring that someone thought that I cloned in my subject? If so I am taking it as a compliment.

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 looks 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

Whew. . . good job, Carlo!

I just finished voting on every single picture except 2 whose I knew whose they were. I was hoping this time for a really mediocre challenge where my nice 6.7+ score would end up in the top 10 -- but alas -- as prejudiced as I tried to be (juuuuuuuust kidding), there were some really reeeeeeealllly good ones who got TOP scores from me !

I bet I can even guess which one is Smyk's.

Edit: Can't type today

I think I've been trolled all day. The score has taken a bit of a beating today.

What I think is that the 4 scores are very important - at least I like a lot of mine and others', like Melethia's. The thing for people like me, and unlike recent Melethia, is to fool everyone from time to time with with a 6.

Yep, my thoughts exactly. Although I am sure you are likely kicking my butt as usual Andrew. ;)

That will change in this month's FS, which will be the start of our H2H! Bring it on my friend!!!

Ya the wolf is eating the eagles! lmao

If you are being this quiet on your score you are likely pushing at least a mid-7 again! I hope you get another ribbon.....so you can get it out of your system now, before the H2H. hehehe

I wished upon a star...and along came Fav #2...::sniffles happily::

by the looks of the scores posted here though, it looks like I will be lucky to crack top 20 :)

Great photos in there everyone.

I am at 126 votes and the downward trend continues albeit at very small steps.
04/30/2009 07:32:25 AM · #148
My score has taken a turn down to the worst. I was almost above my last score and now it is staying around this score...ughh, oh well. My tree score sucks too!
