No horse in the race, but I found that there were many entrants that were quite sub-par in quality. I guess I find this interesting as many folks around this place have in the past complained about the number of ribbon winners that include water drops and glass, etc. Shooting glass and shiny objects is quite a difficult skill to learn and master, and to those that delivered quality work here, kudos to you!

People mention my titles more often than my image...well almost.

"title hurts this one"
"Lol, one extra point for the title, 9" etc
plenty more, but I don't want to threadjack

I needed a good title for this one to help the image, but I seemed to have failed. I thought it would be top 15 or so given the number of entries. That's not going to happen. At least it made it up over 5.0 overnight.

My score has shattered like a shotglass hitting the ground. And I really was proud of my photo.

Had the idea of the glass I wanted to use as soon as I saw the challenge and procrastinated so did a last minute shot...guess it shows.

There are some really good shots out there and some not so good shots.

Titles are important to a point...and unfortunately I'm TERRIBLE at titling my pieces!!

I don't have a dog in this fight. But I usually don't even look at the titles unless I don't understand the image. It doesn't usually help but occasionally it does.

It started so well!
Expected the image to flop so will be happy if it stays over 5.
The idea came to me in a dream so I had to enter the challenge!
Great comments though, cheers guys x

Not sure what's happening to the score on this one. Over the past 24 hours, my score has dropped by about 0.25 to bring it under a 5. That's with over 100 votes, so some people are really sending along a lot of very low scores.

Mine has gone up by that much or more! I'm very surprised but not sad, LOL.

Something strange is happening in this challenge (to my entry at least). Just curious ... how many votes have people received in this challenge so far? I have 116.

I don't know, my score was only going up until last night. Today it has ONLY been going down. Just a strange trend I guess. First time I have experienced something like this. Maybe I am just reading too much into it.

That's similar to what I have been seeing. Other than the opening day roller coaster, my score was slowly creeping up. Now over the past 36 hours, it's been dropping like crazy.

Nah, mine started great and went pear shaped since!

Halfway through voting and commenting. my score hasn't really changed that much (5.3 - 5.6 range), nor do I really expect it to take any sudden turns in either direction.

Hi. I've seen several comments like this one in the forums re: how many of what vote number people have received to date on whatever the current challenge is, but I'm at a loss as to how they are aware of this info. I've looked all over the place for how to display this detailed voting info during the voting stage but can't find anything. Can anyone help?

I had wondered this myself. It depends on how much work you want to do to track your scores.
Hopefully someone will post up the links to the spreadsheets they've created to track this. There's nothing on the site that will show you this information.

mine is sitting at 4.8x and I keep looking at it and tell myself to quit forcing challenge entries. Because it really is a crappy picture.

Oops, I meant 4.8x.

4.90 - Movin' up.

I don't take or add points for title but I love titles that try to justify what the artists perceives as the photo's shortcomings (made up examples)

"African Elephant in Blurry Foreground"
"Close-Up of Flower with Fast Moving Bee" (Bee is a blurry mess)
"Pig in Snowy Weather" (When there is little or no evidence of snow except some spots on the lens)
"Mississippi River with Tugboat cut in half.

These are made up extremes but I love when I come across the real ones.

I don't think I saw one in the Shot Glass challenge though.
