Oh well, at least I'm scoring consistantly with my other two challenges. Wish I got some comments but I guess my photos are just too boring :-(

First impressions are important. Yes. But do you get any enjoyment out of this voting style? Do you not find anything more to see than just to determine if the challenge is met and the first impression worthy? Perhaps it is just me. I like to SEE the pictures. The relevance to the challenge will be dutifully taken into account at the time I vote, but to start with I just like to SEE what people have taken the time to shoot, edit and enter. By the way, I too, will go back and re-evaluate after my first round of scoring. But that first round generally takes me a while. Perhaps I've just been here entirely too long, or I'm getting too old. Feel free to completely ignore my ramblings!


AMEN on this!!! I totally agree with you on this. I am the same as you. I like to really look at photos and try to figure out what the photog is trying to portray in their shot and look at all of the elements of it as well as MEANING and see what I can see in them. I will then do a rough first vote/score and then, go back and refine and re-score where I feel necessary. Often on a second pass through, I'll decide that several need to be bumped up in score. Not too many are ever lowered on a second pass. You're not "old" and you haven't been here too long. As a matter of fact, your experience in here is what makes you fair in your scoring.

And, as my own personal opinion and experience, 10 to 15 minutes to score an entire challenge is about a couple to a few seconds per photo and not nearly long enough to catch all of their nuances. At least, that's what I feel when I'm scoring/voting/commenting. If I've done it that quickly...I really have to think that I've not given any of them a fair chance. But, that's just me. Maybe, I've not learned the art of quick judgement???

I guess I wasn't wrong to stay out of the challenges for so long. *sigh* And I may be able to make my goal of it not being my lowest score, maybe. I've had a tough day, and this doesn't help. (But misery loves company, so it's good to know I'm not the only one taking a beating here!)


I hear ya, Donna! Had a really BAD day myself and this is making me want to take up drinking...either that....or CAMERA SMASHING LOL

So, gotcha beat to the Brown LOL. :)

Think I'm kind of getting pegged into the 4 and 5 bracket with 6 and above being a faded dream now. Ohhhh....Once Upon A Time.....I had 6's.....but, alas...they are no more. :(

I usually wait for 2-3 days to see how my own entry is rating, then I scale my votes against my own entry. This way I have no reason to complain on the votes I'm beeing given because I'll rate all others accordingly.

So, if your own entry is bombing with a 4.2, that means the whole scale gets lowered, because your own is doing poorly? Everyone is entitled to vote how they see fit, but I prefer to vote every entry on it's own merits, not compared to my entry, nor ranked against the rest of the field.

I have to agree with Steve. What does how your image fares have to do with the execution of the other entries? You should always judge images on their merits, not against yours, nor anyone else's for that matter.

I've got a feeling you're back up again (I was as high as 4.6 breifly, lol, not back to 4.4)

I finally got a couple comments - one liked it (said she gave me a 7) and the other didn't tell me what he gave me, but said that it was "expected" and had nothing to say. So mid-4s seems about right.

I still need to wait before voting - or this will color my perceptions. Not as badly as yesterday, but still... lol

Starting to gain some traction. Might actually end up where I anticipated.

...it took a few passes through though. I just couldn't make up my mind between

You have given an average score of 1.0000.

...and...

You have given an average score of 10.0000.

I was just having some fun with the scores thread, knowing what it's like when voting starts and the votes have such a large impact on scores. Hopefully nobody is too upset with me. My votes are final now :)


You little snot!.!.!.! :) Actually I think it was quite funny, I've thought of doing it, but I thought it would be more fun to get about 15 or so people to do it synchronized.. That would wreak real havoc... Then again, I'd probably worry too much to actually execute that sort of thing, so.... *shrug*..

-Cheers.

Evil, pure evil. And so funny. As long as it happens to someone else.

I know how you feel, Jeb. I was *really* happy for about three hours yesterday when all three of my submissions were standing at 6+. Two of them may have staying power at that level, and one should end up on my profile page, but the score for my "parallel" image has dropped back to sub-6. It was fun while it lasted!!

LOL...DANG IT!! I can't even do that right now either! ROFL.

Ok, join me then in a toast to Low Scores! :)

03/04/2010 05:33:19 PM · #92
Just finished my first round of scoring. Gotta go back and do a second run through and some commenting. BUT...I can say one thing...there wasn't one shot in there, in MY estimation that was worthy of under a 7! That may make me overly generous or stupid, I don't know but, I cannot see the LOW scores that are being handed out in this challenge! Not one of them are worthy of a 1 to 4 score as far as I'm concerned.

So, here ya all go. Hope my scoring gave everyone a bit of a very much needed boost because they all deserved it! :) And, if I'm considered a "Troll" for high scores...at least I'm a "Gift Troll" LOL They truly all deserved the scores I gave out. :)

You have rated 137 of 137 images (100%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 1 images (1%) in this challenge.
You have given an average score of 9.2336.

ETA: Forgot to add my current score :(

Been a gentle slide since about Saturday morning, and I was down to 6.56xx at one point....

Anybody home?

I am looking to end up with my lowest score to date and that is ridiculous considering the crap photo of mine that currently holds that title. I know this entry is 100 times better then my lowest scoring cold entry.
