There is a style of photo that does well on dpc, if you want high scores try to find pictures that please dpc people. Alternatively just stick with what pleases you. Or do a bit of both.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/62989/thumb/487692.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/62989/thumb/487692.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I took this for the spinning challenge. I really like it but I knew it would score about 4, so I didn't enter it.

This was in the Fill the Frame challenge. I really like it. So did one or two other people. It scored a 4. I don't care.

I know how painful low scores can be, but keep plugging away. either please yourself or please the crowds, or mix it up and do a bit of both.

Best of luck.


fill frame pic is very artistic !!

well I actually think this is very nice. more interesting to me than any old boring product shots (of course that's what everyone wants to see because that is what they have been taught to see and if you were going for that look you have a lot of work to do) images like this will always score poorly here. i have entered a few of them myself.


Hey you referring to my image or the one by bugzeye ?

To be honest, it is a pretty bad photo. Unappealing red lighting, not very sharp / slightly out of focus, uninteresting / straight on angle.

Dig through the galleries for product shots - you will certainly find perfume or other similar product shots and see what makes them different and especially ones that did well in challenges.

Don't be disappointed though - learn and grow. Don't get frustrated - it's a process and you will improve if you keep a positive attitude and listen and look at examples of others who do well.

Hope this helps.

thanks,
This is the sharpest my olympus can get. I put the camera on tripod and put the cam in macro mode and then moved the product until it was the sharpest !! Is there any other way to get a sharper pic ?... i did run it through NI though.
