You have rated 39 of 74 images (53%) in this challenge.
The others I have not voted on because I cannot figure out the original photographs.

The more you do, the more you learn, and the better you will get such that will be bumped off your main profile spread. And don't feel too bad as that I am sure everyone has an image or two they regret...I know I do;-)

After seeing some of your work... I am thinking I'd take what ever you regretted .... LOL Thanks for the encouragement!!

Maybe there ought to be a page where all the Pro's have to post one stinker so mini me's can feel better about ourselves! :^)


Weeeeelllll, there was the one that I broke the glass top of our dining room table because the lights underneath grew too hot it cracked. I laugh now but I am still a bit embarassed by it. The photo itself was sub-par (really terrible) and after thinking about it too long I was not fast enough to pull it before roll-over happened. I requested a Self-DQ while in voting (but I would not recommend that unless you are absolutely sure about wanting to pull it)

Status:
Stats: You have rated 50 of 82 images (61%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 25 images (30%) in this challenge.
You have given an average score of 6.0600.

I am being honest in what I think works well (what I like about it and why) and with what doesn't (and why) and mayhap some suggestions on how to improve it. Hope no one is getting miffed.

Thankyou....someone understands my confusion.

Maybe, I can see her point for either challenge.

In this challenge, if the editing is done well, you won't see what the original photograph was...! It will ALL look like one photograph.

Yep, agree. I took her comment to mean that the entry no longer resembles a photograph, or she posted in the wrong thread. I'm sure she will tell us tomorrow.

Well she stated "You have rated 39 of 74 images (53%) in this challenge" I doubt there would be this many images in the Mythical that don't resemble a photograph. And....there are only 74 entries in First Entry, whereas there are 82 entries in Mythical.

Guess I should have checked! LOL!

ooops sorry for the confusion. This was meant for the first entry thread.

PS - I like ALL of the creature entries, even though I haven't voted on all of them yet.

Perfect, thank you...

First time in ages I have voted 100% on a challenge. Some good stuff in there..

Also some not so good stuff in there.

Picked my winners out though. Hope they do well.

Overnight got 8 votes that averaged a 4.1xxx.

Had been climbing toward 5.8, dropped overnight to a 5.70.

I hate this site.

I really think most voters just hate expert editing. My no effect whatsoever, quick snap, 5 minutes of editing "First Entry" entry is currently beating my "Mythical Creature".

There are people out there who hate Expert Editing and subsequently go through and vote down any entries that appear to be expert editing. They usually don't enter themselves....but they feel they have the right to vote how they please....I am surprised they haven't shown themselves in this thread yet!

Not going to post my score, but let's just say my mythical score is mithhing the mark very badly. Ok, so I did a s****y job on it in PS. I know I did! I've never used many of those PS features before. So some of the comments are offering hints and tips, which is very nice, and others are basically just saying, 'Your PS skills suck'. Well, duhhhh....

Anyway, not going to dwell on it. What's done is done.

I agree. Just because merging photos is legal, doesn't mean one has to do it.

Score the image as a whole... not the effort in Post Processing. It's still a photography contest, right?


I agree Lydia... I think that it is an important feature of this particular challenge as being Expert Processing, but it is still a photography contest... If someone can edit an image in a fashion that doesn't lose it's photographic qualities, or tricks the viewer into thinking that it is a photograph, then this should get high points as an image as a whole... I wonder if images that look more like paintings, or like some special 'photoshop effects' button was pressed should be better placed in non-photography contest. Just my two cents...
