I'm waiting for the Buddhists to start voting. Wonder if they have "Zennier" perspective on what Zen means? ;-)

very very dissapoiting, i think this is the best shot i have posted so far, perhaps my views arnt shared. there are some great shots in this challenge, yet to vote on most but the scores posted in here so far seem quite low considering the quality of shots here.

There are some really great images in this challenge! I'm actually doing quite well for a change. I started out with a couple of 7s and right now I'm at 6.2143. I'm really happy with my image and hoping for a personal best. My last few entries have bombed.

My lowest score so far in a challenge ever. ( And I thought I couldn't go lower then the score I got in the DUOTONES challenge ) Just goes to show that DPC can surprise you time and time again :)

Wasn't sure what to expect from this one so it's a nice start.

Again, I'll never understand the voters. I don't even really like this photo, only entered it because my partner said it was good!

No..but really, as I said...nothing surprises me any more. Fully expect to drop to a brown score the way it's going now. And I thought mine was a pretty decent image.( actually I thought that about my Duotone entry too)
Instead of improving my photography seems to be declining since I joined DPC.

Was still around a 4.7 this morning, but a click of the update button shows me that there are some who appreciate fine art.

Know the feeling. Sometimes I'm not sure if DPC is improving my photography, or just pointing out that I suck!

If there is one thing this site proves, it is the saying that "You know what opinions are like, everybody has one".

After browning a couple times now I know the feeling. But, what I keep reminding myself is that, even though the voters may not like my images at times, I am trying new things (usually the case on my lowest scoring images) and I am liking my photography better than ever. I am also learning to use my equipment and my software more effectively. Don't let the voters discourage you. There seems to be almost a formulaic style of photo that does well on this site, which is not necessarily indicative of the quality of your work. Photography is an art form and very subjective. Keep this in mind. If impressionistic art lovers were to cast votes on a Picasso or Dali painting, what kind of scores do you think they would give? That does not mean that Picasso and Dali were not great artists. It would simply be a case of having their work showcased in the wrong arena. Hang in there and good luck!

There were a lot of fantastic photos in this challenge. I immediately gave lower scores to those that didn't meet the challenge well. I am not usually that harsh, but I have a strong background in Japanese studies and lived in Japan so I found it difficult to consider something zen that just wasn't. Hope I didn't upset or offend anyone.

Many of us (self included) are ignorant and have only a stereotypical idea of what Zen really is. I have no doubt you low voted my own entry.

ditto. after four bad entries scoring less than 5, I thought I had a redemption shot here. I was very happy with this one too, guess I was wrong. But hey, the comments were great.
