was really excited with the result I got from a flower photo by flipping and using difference blending mode .. thought I was going to kick some major goals and probably get a ribbon .. totally satisfies the challenge and its just wonderful how it turned out ..
I could have done the complete flip blend and flip again and again .. but this result had so much more to it .. it wasnít only an abstract but Iím loving the creature that emerged .. of course I may be biased as it looks very insect like .. especially the moth like scales on its wings and the hairs on its face .. etc ..
anyway .. first vote a 7 .. then it dropped to 6.1 after 6 votes .. then went up to 6.5 at 8 votes ..from then it just dropped and dropped .. 6.000 at 8 votes and 5.7462 at 13 votes ..
seems like it's getting a very mixed reception ..
i havenít had any internet for over a week and bad for the entire month of September .. so I havenít really been able to view many photos .. and definitely too difficult to comment and vote .. Iíll be interested to see the other entries in this challenge ..

after rollover ..
quite disappointed with the result .. especially after seeing the other entries .. guess i think a lot differently to other ppl ..

ps .. i really dont understand the six 4's .. arent they for images that dont really fit the challenge .. this totally did .. would loved to have had feedback as to why this bombed so badly with a lot of ppl ..

this was another possible.. but after I'd edited it I realised it was taken 8 hours before the challenge was announced ..

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.
