My score sucked...but it was very cool to get a Langdon comment!
09/22/2011 11:41:06 PM · #2
I also got a comment from Langdon. I was pretty excited to see him participating too!

I dropped almost .2 in the last day, which sucks a lot because I am at a 5.6 when I had expected a 6.1-6.2.

I also think that people voted down images that they suspect used expert editing. Oh well : /

It appears by the scores that if you fabricate from photos you have taken you are down scored, Is not what this challenge is all about under expert rules.?????????

I would count one tiny element added as digitally manufactured. My easy way of thinking about it is if it can be done in advanced editing, it's not digitally manufactured; if it needs expert, it is. I realize this is dumbing it down a bit.


My point was (and this is an extreme exaggeration) if I took a regular shot and in PS added a few pixels would that make the photo fake? It would be nearly impossible to spot that. It just seems (to my untrained eye) that there are some normal pictures with maybe one tiny element out of place, and I don't know which way to guess. The picture as a whole is real.

I probably should have asked this a lot earlier, but just wondering.

What do you mean count? I think the idea was to try and make you guess.

I've made a concerted effort to guess on 100% of the entries, there are only a few I haven't commented on. I'm going to try to get through them in the next few minutes though. =)
