Cheer up -- that makes it easier to improve next time! If you start out high, it's just all downhill from there. :D

Seriously, though, when I first started, I ignored everyone else and just tried to beat myself. Use your first challenge as your benchmark. What was your average, where did you place percentage-wise? Then try to beat that with the next challenge, and the next.

Looking at a lot of the scores, I'm feeling pretty good about this one. 140 entrants so I would be very pleased with a top 10%. Not quite a PB but is heading towards my goal of 6+ only on my profile view (I have mine set to 9 images wide so I have 2 more 5+ to dispose of).

The wonders of personal interpretation....been getting 4's and 5's all along, and then my last two votes were a 7 and 8.

Thank you for your generosity whoever you are!
