I never have understood any distinction between 'art' and 'fine art' in respect of photographs, so my criterion was: 'Would I enjoy this on my wall?' And after that: 'For how long?' Thus for 6-7 I'd use a removable sticky hook; for 8+ I'd drill a hole.


I have viewed a few great art museum shows that were designed not to please, but to disturb, to force uncomfortable truths into my mind, to challenge assumptions. Nothing in those shows were art I would hang on my wall, but they were better and more important shows than any collection of pretty images that I would hang on my wall.

This week the decorative takes a back seat to the though provoking.

The way I approached selection of Top 10 was:
does this image go beyond a good photograph? does it move me, or impress me, or make me think?
No single criterion made it possible for me to have a rather eclectic collection of Top 10 images.

My score to say the least is UNBELIEVABLE, Have to keep checking to see if I'm not dreaming.
Have 2 faves already, thanks. I'm loving this.

The score is fine (I am not worrying about it for this specific challenge as not every one of these will resonate with all) but the two comments I have received make me very glad I entered....

Last minute shot and entry, wasn't going to enter, but it's scoring better than I thought it would.

The judging process runs in parallel to the normal process with results of that be announced after the regular scores and ribbon allocation has taken place.

Not bad company to keep. Who else wants to join? I don't think my score will likely change much.

Last night voting was a bit rough, glad to wake up to a sunnier score. (event though it is currently snowing at my house, uggg is spring ever going to come?)
04/08/2011 09:24:45 AM · #72
About equally loved, hated, and meh'd. :)

I find a bit of difference between fine art and modern art. I'm pretty much disappointed with the images so far. I'm not through voting but have to admit, it was hard for me to squeeze out much above 7's for the most part. I keep hoping that 10 will just scream out at me, but so far, none of them have. This is such a subjective challenge that I am curious to see how others interpret its meaning. I didn't enter, as I had nothing that even resembled the high quality that I expect in this challenge. Good luck everyone!! ..... off to finish voting.

What an interesting statement -- I assumed that fine art meant modern art in this case. "Try to make a contribution to contemporary photographic .. [more] art with your entry." I wouldn't have thought of them as two different things.

Intriguing.

That very well might explain all the 1s I'm receiving.

My image is directly in front of the snack bar where people go to snack and nap!

I even heard ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Louis snore...(in French, of course!)

I'm looking forward to voting on this challenge.

Good Luck everyone!
