I'm really starting to wonder if I have a different style that the people who vote first dislike:

It started at a 4.5 at the beginning of the week. And as people have complained about falling scores, mine has "soared". Now... if only I can figure out how to please the 1st 30 voters, I'd be in good shape.

Oh no!!! Over the last day I've dropped from a 5.9888 to a 5.93


Me too! Practically the same score drop. Half of the drop has occurred in the last 5 votes. It can please stop now!
For 4 days I was over a 6, and now I am in danger of falling to a 5.8

I have finished voting, and will not vote any more. If you wish, you can reveal your entry to me in PM and I will critique it while in voting. Or if this is somehow verboten, please feel free to PM me any time after the challenge, and I will gladly critique your photo in-depth.

I have to agree with jminso--just finished voting, and it was such a pleasure!!! A lot of really fantastic images in this challenge :-) Thank you for all the smiles and joy you've spread!

That's good, because it seems very much to be a rising tide here. Vote a lot of people low, and recipients of your low votes seem more inclined to vote low in return. But vote high, however, and the opposite seems to occur. :-)


I WISH it worked that way. Unfortunately...doesn't matter how many great scores I give out...I still suck! LOL ;))

Just finished voting and I was blown away by several entries. With so many more entries in these challenges, voting is going to be a bit more difficult and time consuming and I believe my comments will be much fewer and far inbetween.

I am still working on voting and commenting. I have already voted but I am adjusting as I go through.

Still doing well. Definitely going to be a PB for me. The fact that it's coming in this challenge makes me very happy.

I need a second to ruminate that.

I.e., an incidental element that was added thoughtfully (as opposed to being tacked on carelessly).

"thoughtful incidental"

As someone who created a story using a balloon, I would have to disagree. The ones which had the balloons as a "thoughtful incidental" (which is the same as a "Balloon tacked on at the end") will hopefully be among the lower scoring photos...

Am I the only one who is finding these balloon pictures hard to score???

Iím seeing some amazing photos, that are.....almost...ruined by the balloons.

some of these photos I love, but the balloons almost seem like an afterthought. And I'm finding they detract from another wise awesome photo.

Am I alone here?

I've never gotten so many 6's in my life. Am I the son of the foe?

There were some good shots, but there was a lot of dross in this challenge. The scores are probably right where they should be. I voted two nines, two eights, a few sevens, a handful of sixes, and maybe more fours than I've given out in a while.


The master has spoken, we suck! ;|


Yes, by any standard 85% of this better than average crop must be scored below an average score. If you can't see that you must have no standards. Only the very best are worth scoring above a five. ;(

Only it's not a better-than-average crop. There are a handful of very good images. If you disagree, well, fine, but then our tastes -- diverge, shall we say. ;-)

Incidentally, if anyone was wondering (or cares), since my honesty has brought out the most sarcastic in people, I'm not playing DPL, and I'm not on a team, nor did I enter this challenge.


But the real question is...did you stay and a Holiday Inn Express last night? ;~)
