At least I'm not alone! I'm at 8 out of the last 10 that have been well below my average. Sucks, doesn't it?

There are some great entries in the challenge, I am surprised scores here do not reflect that!

This is my first member challenge after almost 1 year.. and I had really forgotten how good you guys are - open challenges definitely do not always bring out the best of DPC!

I didn't enter. There were a few that I just could not see. There were a lot that weren't smiles or frowns (straight mouths, open mouths, etc). I don't know how to score those. I believe in following the challenge description. And the description called for smiles or frowns. I had a pretty good photo that showed a face but it was more of an angry face, not a smile or forwn, so I didn't enter it.

I'm actually impressed at the quality in this one. I thought it would be pretty lame, but it actually is a fun one! Will vote later.

I'm not voting that literally. I was looking at the face and if I got the impression of happiness or unhappiness, then it worked for me.

Forgot to add that I am the only one voting that liberally lol:

Karen - I saw the one you were likely going to enter (on your blog) and I thought it was perfect for the challenge - and likely a very high finisher. A frown does not have to be big sloping line facing downward - it can be a feeling created by the whole 'face'. If you look at the commercials from American Express on TV (US TV mind you) that were part of the basis of this challenge, many of the smiles and frowns were subtle - and I think that is fine.

I haven't looked at the entries yet, but there seems to be a lot of low scores. Mine included...

Thanks, I guess I'll have to re-think my stance on this. :)

Thought I would break out of my conceptual people/portrait shots and do something different. Of course when I saw 'it' I just had too:-) Fun challenge to vote on - lots good shots and some exceptional ones. Will have to find time to leave comments.

Just a reminder that outtakes and might-have-beens need to wait until after the voting ends before being posted & discussed.
01/18/2010 11:20:04 AM · #23
oops, sorry Manic. First time I see the might have been rule applied. I understand that it may affect some voters on how to vote. At least that's why I think you removed it.

alright so i'm pretty sure people just missed the smile in mine... not trying to rant but i've been here long enough to know what a 5.0 pic is :P

it's clear in the thumbnail, maybe it's just not as apparent when viewing full screen. Aghh i gotta pick it up!

That's a big surprise...can't wait to see which is yours.

Mine is doing okay, but it did start over 6.3 and has leaked all day.
