By the way, it's not my baby...and I can't wait to advance edit this photo.


Don't worry...I got ones on my image too...and they were hugging and kissing in the photo!

The voting has been very bizarre on this challenge. I've had 9s and 10s and quite a few 4s (and even lower ones today). I'm curious to see if the winners have a wide distribution as well, or if they were more uniformly popular.

I am sitting on a 6.5 with 10 nice comments so whoever gave me the 1 can Hug and Kiss my #%$.


You've made up a lot of ground, and may just pull ahead of me. I've been dropping like a rock today. a 3, 1 and something in the 1 or 2 range.

Well Judi is still sick at the moment...so I am likely to do anything...which can be dangerous.

Seems like most have been between 4 and 7, which is a bit higher than I expected for a pretty crappy image. Those 1's and 2's though...

...will hopefully be thrown out by the big bad troll exterminator =D


Why is it "sadly" your personal best? You've beaten your PB by a good chunk!! That's awesome!

So far nothing has happend here in NZ. I doubt we are completely in the clear here but it seems as though it won't be as bad as they thought it could be.

I think my score peaked lastnight. With just over 7 hours til Rollover I doub't it will do much more than drop a little bit.

In other news we might have a Tsunami hit here. So we may end up having to climb to higher ground.

just got a 1. trolled twice this morning, so far.

Oh!! I know! This is for the golf round, so someone just voted a 1 since lowest is best in golf. :D


LOL, gotta love DPC - someone gets a 10 its because their photo is awesome, someone gets a 1 its all down to the trolls.. :/


I call them trolls because in my voting world, 10s are for photos that are so well executed and so interesting that you want to hang them on your wall. also, in my world, a 1 is because a photo is just so incredibly bad, you can't get much worse. If a photo is well executed and well composed, it doesn't deserve a 1, imo. If I hate the subject and detest the photo, yet it's still well done, I still don't think it deserves a 1. So yes, a vote of 1, on anyone's photo not just mine, is rarely deserved, imo.


btw, this came out sounding much harsher than I meant it to sound. I've been trying very hard for the last number of weeks not to complain in the scores thread. It's obnoxious -- especially if someone is doing well. So I'm just making statements. It's up, it's down, the voting is harsher today than yesterday, the voting today is much happier than yesterday. Because I find it interesting to know how people's pictures are doing. When everyone's scores are falling, I feel better about mine going down too. When everyone's scores are on the rise, but mine is falling, I figure there's something wrong with mine that it's just not catching people's imagination. But a 1 will always be a troll, imo, until someone can explain to me how it's justified (and it will probably still be one then.) :D

Don't have a chance at making my front page anymore -- too far away. It was a really fun start to a challenge, though.
