Heh! Thanks, but I wasn't specifically implying you needed to comment... :-) Just a general mild rant for yet another not-good DPC entry, that's all. But I do appreciate the sentiment!!

Hmmm... my dear, you have gotten 4 sixes and an almost 6 in the last 5 entries. 3 out of 5 being top 20s. (4 out of 5 being top 25s)

Sorry, you can't rant for awhile. :P

I'm dropping like a rock. Can I rant?

Preceded by a 5.0 and a 4.9, and followed this week by a 3.8 and a current 5.0. I'm nothing if not inconsistent.

Make that a sub-5 in the current challenge. No comments. Not a one.

I've dropped like a rock all day. I thought it was a 6.3-6.4 shot, but at the moment, I'm in danger of losing the 6. But with 88 votes already, there's obviously something I'm missing--I'm not sure if it's the processing or whether the shot itself isn't as good as I thought. Ah well, I can live with that.

The biggest problem is the posting curse! Every single time I post anything in this thread, it drops precipitously. But I refuse to give in to the posting curse!! I will post!! Even if I drop below 2! I refuse to give in!!

Not just you. Close enough I suppose to a 100 vote check in:

I had a feeling that this one might be a 7+ image, so I still have hopes that it'll go back up.

Hi! I'm really mediocre! Mired in the upper 4s, low 5s, thanks. OK, so that's worse than mediocre. Never mind. Please, continue what you were doing, but I would appreciate a "this sucks" or "DNMC" comment. Something. Anything! Will pay for comments...


I second that!! I see handsfull of 1 - 2 - 3 entering, without any comments.
Just 1 comment that came in but following the comment content I don't think it's someone who voted one of those bottom scores.
I would find it very nice if at least they tell me that it's crap, WHY it's crap etc.
Then at least I know what to watch out for next time I'm giving that type of photograph a try because this was the first time I did it.

BTW Deb: "DNMC"? I've voted on all photographs I can't recall having met an entry which was clearly DNMC to me.

You have rated 135 of 135 images (100%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 42 images (31%) in this challenge.
You have given an average score of 6.2741.

All I can say is that this is one of the better challenges I've had the pleasure of judging. I've tried to give constuctive critism when I can though I feel unqualified as I couldn't do as well as 90% of what I've seen. I also commented on the ones I thought were truly outstanding. If I didnt' comment on your photo I oppologise but only so many hours in the day.

I'm glad I didn't enter this challenge as my previous ones have scored poorly and compaired to these entries I would had only reduced my average score. Well done!

Haha, after scoring in the 5 range in my first two challenges, I guess I got cocky, but don't worry this challenge is doing its job in sobering me up again :-P
I have a technically good image, so I am guessing most people are voting this down because they think it DNMC.
I beg to differ, but I can see where they are coming from.

I'm always happy when the score is above six, i didn't expect it to be this high so all is well, some really good shots in this challenge i think, but i think that in most challenges, why can't you all be crap then it would be so much easier.

The game is afoot. If there was a 7.6 then there was bound to be 2-3 other 7+ scores. But now perhaps there are not. Maybe I have a fighting chance, although I know there are some higher scores out there.
