Not all portraits are shot in portrait mode and not all landscapes are shot in landscape mode.

Consider that these 2nd and 3rd place ribbon winners in landscape challenges were submitted in portrait orientation.

Ummm - Have you ever heard of a guy by the nickname of librodo? Big portrait kind of shooter. Many, many ribbons on this site. Majority of his 'Portrait' shot's are in landscape orientation. Works quite well actually.

p.s. - same subject was discussed earlier in this thread I believe.

Not bad seeing it was hanging around in the mid 4's at the beginning of voting.

My best so far :) hopefully will make it to the first page !!

I see everyone has a million comments I only have 9.. but as long as the score keeps moving up I am not complaining ;)

UGHH, I'm still sitting at a 5.8 ! Been sitting there for 3 days.

Common guys! Don't forget about voting other challenges just because new ones have been put in the roster. Let's get that bumping up going and vote! :)

I have 39 comments so far, all very positive. This is a record for me.

Not many votes in the last 24 hours. I think the open challenges are getting the attention now. Some scary stuff out there in the Still Life challenge. Some really good stuff too.

My score has been holding steady. I don't want to post it for fear it will be jinxed. Plus I can feel Kiwiness out there ready to squash me like a grape!

Sunday is my birthday. I think a lovely little ribbon would be a fine birthday present! ;-)

I just had a wonderful comment that said they gave me a 10 and I should be at least in the top 10 come end of challenge. THANK YOU COMMENTOR!!

Most comments of all 15 or so of them are loving my shot. Two feel that it lacks in one way or another. Yet, I have dropped from a 6.7 to a 5.7 now, and see no way of making top 10 other than somewhere in the top 10 pages come challenge end :)

There is still time, but I would need one HECK of a lot of bump ups and maybe all 10 votes from now till Sunday to get back up there. :(

Many voters will go back and adjust a score they've already cast. Thus, no new votes, but a change in your average

It has been a while since I have had a shot like mine in EP which started high (7.45 at between 10-20 votes) found a plateau in the 12-24 hour period (6.65) and then has done nothing but drop since (6.35). Odd.


Doc-I pointed out the same thing earlier and my guess/assumption is that people are way, way pissed off by the DNMC's accompanied by low scores and are voting vengefully (sp?)...or Cindi(idnic's) single anti "doo doo head" vote is having some profound effect.

Some really nice work in this challenge, folks. Was a pleasure to peruse and vote on this one.

Sure, "stoked" is totally tubular!
