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.

Sad day. I finally dropped below a 6.
I was so hoping that this would be the one that would break the 6 barrier for me.

Whoops, I just figured out which one was yours. :P


Out of 300+ entries? Surely my "style" isn't that predictable. ;-)

I'm rockin' the comments :-)

I honestly can't believe that my entry is above 5 compared to all the other great photos! I have never given out so many 8's 9's and 10's.

I've given out many high scores, probably more so than normal. Some amazing entries.

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. :-)

Also, why do you keep quoting yourself?


Vlado, Actually I wouldn't mind kissing few of them. LOL :)
I'm quoting my previous scores so that those interested can see how the scores had been going up and down.

I though by quoting this, it would be helpful for many scientists here who had been going through several pages to see patterns in scoring over the week. LOL

Perhaps a plot would be a better representation of the pattern/trend. :)

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. ;(

Disagree completely.

All 6 photos should be scored a 6, all 7s a 7, 8s an 8, etc...

If the crop is that good, it's that good. If 85% this go round score 6 or better, then great! The photos were worth it.

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.

I believe its simply a disagreement, your average score given is quite close to my 5.2 (which is technically below an average score). I did enter the challenge and am in the DLP and gave out many more 7 plus scores than normal and very few sub 4s. As you said, we disagree, and that is fine. There we agree.

This is the first challenge where my score was so stagnant. It has hardly moved at all.
