Keeps jumping from 5.1** to this. It's ok though, I thought it was going to finish sub 4 so seeing a 5 was surprising.

Under a 6 now. Huge drop. A bunch of harsh people voting right now. Always makes you wonder why, but very few people will leave feedback.

I wonder what brings on these rashes of suddenly harsh voting sometimes too? I don't look at these voting threads enough to see a definite pattern, but it does seem to me quite often the scores start to plummet right after high scores are reported. I want to assume the best ethics from all voters, but I can't help but wonder to be honest if some of the harsh votes come from those who learn their image might be close to a ribbon and those who are frustrated because their image isn't scoring as well as some others? Again, just a hunch on my part and not based on a lot of voting thread views. I am not implying that voting threads should not be allowed, but hope those who read them will do the right thing if they vote after reading them. I am still in a good place with the score of my image, but saw it drop by .54 between 19 and 50 votes.

I do think some "tactical voting" goes on, but I also think it is more of an issue in the open challenges. It usually seems that the high and low voting seems to be clustered together. Not totally sure what ties it together, or if it is really just randomness.

I keep having fairly wide swings up and down across the 6.0 mark. Not a lot of middle ground opinions on mine, it appears.

down .3 today

I've come to the conclusion that I can't tell what the voters here will like.

I have an image in Branches that is doing MUCH better than I expected, and my entry in Night Shot is doing much worse than I thought it would.

I'm finding that my biggest issue with a majority of the photos is the clarity. A lot of them are just blurred or look too sharp. And with the background of most of the night photos being black, these edges are just more pronounced. It's just what I'm seeing.

Night shots are not always easy to do. But when you do nail them, they are wonderful eye candy.

Well, I thought I nailed MINE. I was super-happy with it. Welcome to DPC: last 17 votes average 4.5, score 5.1ish. And it's an honest-to-god night shot, no trickery, interesting composition, strong colors, etc etc. So it goes.

Sometimes I think it's more like "survivor".

After my 5.7 after 25 votes I have been holding steady in familiar territory.

Good night DPC
