This is so small, I can hardly tell anything other than they are sailboats. What a shame, because it looks like it would be a great picture. To be able to size it bigger look here Link to resize pictures

Need a larger pic to view!
06/27/2006 02:41:22 AM
Potential to be a great shot, but hard to tell due to the small size.
06/25/2006 08:01:49 PM
I'm sure others will say this, too, but use the full 640 width.

More importantly for this challenge, though, nothing seems out of focus in the background.

Pretty pic, though!

looks like a beautiful shot, but cannot see it to well. Check out optimizing and resizing, etc. your entries.
06/25/2006 05:08:16 PM
Sorry, but this is such a small photo...
06/25/2006 12:29:21 PM
Wow -I think it is a shame that this photo will not do to good, because you don't have it big enough go to learn/tutorials to set your work up to size for DPC. This looks from the little I can see like a cool shot, had it been to size may have got you 9 & 10's. (PS) did the same thing on my first 2 DPC entrys got this advice and it helps. Good luck

Too small.
06/24/2006 07:38:50 AM
To small to make a comment... It looks nice, but if it was bigger it would be possible to see it better :o)
06/24/2006 05:33:41 AM
Nice work but really does need to be bigger as I feel that this is one of those images that need to be seen to be enjoyed.
06/23/2006 11:43:40 PM
A little too small to really tell if the bokeh is sufficient.
06/23/2006 09:45:45 PM
Postage stamp size. Very hard to judge.
06/23/2006 02:24:25 PM
I'm not sure that this really shows an out of focus background. It's also a pretty small image--very difficult to effectively judge the composition or details
06/23/2006 01:50:58 PM
Very pretty picture, but the background doesn't have what I consider bokeh...it's too in focus.

I wish this image was bigger so I could see more detial. The lighting and color are interesting, but at this size I can't tell much about focus.
06/23/2006 10:28:38 AM
Sized incorrectly.
06/23/2006 12:56:38 AM
way smaller than it should be to compete. 640 pixels needed !
06/23/2006 12:55:48 AM
This might have scored much better had it been larger. From what I can see of it, it looks like a interesting image.
06/22/2006 07:57:50 PM
Looks like a really great picture... but I can't tell because it's so small...
06/22/2006 12:55:41 PM
This has the potential to be a really nice image, but since you did not use the full 640 pixels allowed, it is hard to make out a lot of the detail. There is a tutorial about resizing for dpc, please read it and don't give up.
06/22/2006 11:13:28 AM
way too small, but good capture.
06/22/2006 02:51:10 AM
This looks like such a great shot, yet it is so tiny. I am sure you will get inundated with that thought, however I would truly like to see this in a larger version. I really cannot see enough detail to score it very well. I am sorry for that.
06/21/2006 11:13:11 PM
It's always best to use the full size allowed. Much too small to be able to judge the quality of the image.
06/21/2006 06:08:47 PM
This looks like a nice shot, but it is so small relative to others, it is hard to judge the detail.
06/21/2006 03:41:34 PM
Potentially a nice shot, but waaaaaaay to small to judge. You can upload shots up to 150k -- this is only 3k... so you can see where this is suffering.
06/21/2006 03:39:30 PM
I think the pic is too small.
06/21/2006 10:41:15 AM
I wish you had submitted a larger size of this in order to see more detail. Definately has potential.
06/21/2006 10:07:17 AM
Too small, I don't see "bokeh"
06/21/2006 01:36:03 AM
Shame it is so small.....
06/21/2006 01:17:21 AM
Too small to make any judgement. I feel this would have been great capture had it been larger. Goodluck.7.
06/21/2006 01:10:05 AM
This image is 240x160. Why so small? If I could see more of it (i.e. if it were bigger) I probably could have given it a 7 or 8.
06/21/2006 12:35:10 AM
Truely beautiful but way too small.
