Totally my fault. I guess that means I forfeit and you go through. Congrats on being in round 2 and I'm sorry I never gave you any competition. You're a worthy quarter-finallist though, although I bet you'll go further. Good luck :-)


Well, at least I wasn't the only one :P

I'm currently 1.0252 above my average! And, after I figure out which one to enter, hope to have a strong zen photo.

Well, no wonder! You can't "brainstorm" Zen, that's as un-zen a concept as I can imagine. No, you go to your quiet place and let Zen sneak up on you :-)

R.

When I go to my quiet place it is Sleep rather than Zen that sneaks up on me. And I suppose caffeine would also be un-zen-like. So that means I am in big trouble if I survive round 1.


I'm afraid you're in big trouble then Erik ;-)

Barry, thanks for checking in. Sorry I did not get to compete directly against you, it would have been fun. So I guess it is off to my quiet place now.

Since the two of you are in such a borrowing mood, do either one of you have a Zen photo I can borrow for week or so? I promise I will return it when I am done.

Not gonna happen. I am in the mid-4's on duotone, so unless my oppo tanks it even worse than me I'm outta here :-)

Kelli, thats awesome.

I am very happy too... my photo has gone from the 5.7's, and is now sitting at 5.95--. Hopefully I can break a 6 with this shot. I am just really happy that I will be above my average.

There seems to be a lot of nice voters at the moment. I'm at 5.46 now. But I think my average will go down this week, seems I'm not a good constructor. Luckily that doesn't count here.

I'm just a smidge off of this making my home page at 5.9759. If it could just hit 6 it would make it.

My duotone is currently sitting at 0.4544 above my average, so I have submitted a Zen pic. Erik, If things stay as they are now you'll have a much easier time than facing Robert. I'll be the one in trouble I think - I don't have high hopes for my Zen pic.

Paul, my Zen picture is taken but still being worked on a bit -- which means it is not all that good, because had it been any good it would have already been finished and submitted. Too much brainstorming I guess.

I'm sure you will end up with a better score than either one of us, and thus will garner lots of respect in the real challenge.

Looks like you'll take it... I'm only about .16 above my average right now. I'm entering one in Zen anyway, just in case the scrubber performs some miracle for me!

Thanks Ernie. I think you got zapped by the B&W police on this one (not intending to rekindle THAT debate - just saying...).

It does progress geometrically so you can probably work it out - I'll update the matchings once I get back from work.
