|Itís hard to believe itís not one of your amazing insect photos. The voters are so unpredictable. For me, it seems the more I THINK a photo is going to do great, the more likely it is to see the voters go, ďMeh... take this 5 or 4Ē, haha!
Not too long ago, I was looking back at old challenges and it seemed every challenge got tons and tons iof comments and tons and tons of votes! It made it easier for the few who like to vote down photos at the end not change things much. Now, like here, with only 39 votes.... it only takes a couple who do that to ruin an overall score! In my last challenge, I went from a 7.00 to a 6.5 in 4 votes!! I guess itís just something we have to live with... and not place too much importance on the scores. Itís hard I know, because we want to win or at least do good... but for me, itís been good to learn to do my best, and be proud of what I enter, then not let the end result get to me too much. Art is so subjective! And with only 39 people weighing in, it really means nothing as to the quality of the art! Thatís my 2-cents anyway.
