I have great colors, and it isn't helping a bit.

I'm done. I quit.

Why quit. You said yourself, you got an amazing photo from this exercise. Isn't that what it's all about?

I can't even believe this. Doesn't anyone here have an imagination?
Does every entrance have to have a door? That's the only explanation there could possibly be for scoring this low.
I have learned to pretty much not care about my scores but this is ridiculous.


Oh, i wouldn't be too surprised Penny. It's been shown time and time again that a large majority of voters on DPC are pretty unsophisticated when it comes to understanding and decoding visual language. What is taught and understood in colleges and universities around the world is beyond the scope of many here, it seems, who have trouble with anything that isn't literal or shiny. Give them a visual metaphor to look at and they run around like headless chickens and scream DNMC. There seems to be a severe lack of lateral thinking on this site. Still, it's the nature of the beast and i don't think there is any point getting too upset by it.

Anyway, no doors or door handles in my shot...

...there's a surprise! I actually love photos of doors and entranceways anyway and there are some great ones in the challenge. I did take one but this other shot came up and i couldn't resist.


What's funny is that it didn't even occur to me that this might be an issue until after I saw the score this morning. I could have posted a door - I even had a couple of good ones, but I actually thought this shot would be better received because it's more interesting.
So far as my free study - well, what I have already posted is truly out there by DPC standards.
I could change it to something more conventional but I don't know if I want to do that .... or I could just not enter because I'm just so tired of all this.

I was at 5.0 until the last vote... which had to be a 1, 2, or 3.

Starting to see some traction. If the trend holds this might end up where I anticipated.

what do you do when someone leaves a comment in a different language? I don't know if I was insulted or praised. Probably insulted but still.....

I got that too. I tried to translate it but I don't know what language it is in. I thought German but online translators didn't think so.

It meant "enter your comment here and then cast your vote." In Dutch. I PM'd someone I know on a work related forum that speaks German and Dutch, he confirmed that is exactly what it was. I messaged the person who left them thinking it was an April fools gag, and he seemed surprised as well. I didn't know DPC displayed other languages and even so, it should not be leaving that text as a commment.

Perhaps the member is using software that translates between English and Dutch, and it leaves that text behind as a sticky comment.
