(this list is just for fun and by no means is intended to poke fun or insult anyone)

I entered the wrong photo by mistake
The voters are morons
TROLLS!
DPC voters don't understand artisitc shots
Voters are too anal about the challenge description
I was going for the brown ribbon
My eyes are going bad
My monitor's color is off

Any others?

I'm colorblind.*
I thought that border looked good at the time.
I saved at too low a JPEG level.
I resampled to too small an image.
I forgot to straighten the horizon.
I forgot to not enter a picture of a cat kid flower _________

*For example, ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/19/thumb/2267.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/19/thumb/2267.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I don't think it can qualify as an excuse if it's SOP (Standard Operating Procedure). : )

The voters are drunk!

Ya'll forgot one two three...

My regular camera is in the shop.

You mean I can shoot in larger than 640x480 mode for 640x480 submissions?

My focus is right on - I know because I do it manually. Now what's this Diopter thingie for?

I was aiming low
I forgot to withdraw my picture, i only submitted it to see how it would look in the dpc frame
I didnt really look at the photo till voting began
I was tired of winning and wanted to give someone else a chance

Just before I was to unsubmit my photo a porn ad popped up. I clicked on it and I lost all track of time. Damn free internet porn.

The excuse that's always going around in my head is: "I really don't care about scores because I know dpc voters are ignorant and tasteless so I just enter the pics that I like, I know there're good".

My favorite
"It is supposed to look like that"
"I thought it gave it some different aspect"
"It not blurry supposed to convey motion"
"Jacko has all my bugs"
"Kiwiness has all the good models"
"It was raining"
"It was sunny"
"I took a better shot the day/week/year before the challenge started."

I shot it with a point-and-shoot (aka "it can't be the photographer so it must be the camera")

My GOOD camera was in the shop
Heida (or Jacko, or insert-fave-photog-here) entered this one
I have PMS
I'm suffering from photographer's block
The planets weren't in line
It was a full moon
It wasn't a full moon
I forgot my polarizer
I accidently left my polarizer on
The bird/frog/cat/dog/kid/flower/bug moved just as I snapped the shutter
The bird/frog/cat/dog/kid/flower/bug haters voted me down
I thought it was an advanced challenge
I thought it was an open challenge
It should have been an advanced challenge
It should have been an open challenge
