I work about 2 feet away from a 55" monitor. No need to blow anything up, I see the average DPC image as nearly 20" across.

Since an 800 pixel image at 72 dpi is only 11.1111 inches across you are indeed "blowing things up" if you display it at 20" ...

That's 1:1... Not magnified. Fortunately the pixels in this display are packed very tightly so there's not significant 'screen door' effect as you'd find with many large displays.

*looking over shoulder at Ryan's 27' iMac monitor...OK....like I suggested Cory, go work for Alamy in QC!!! If you are looking at DPC images on a 55' monitor, which probably very very very few people here do (my own is a humble 20') then basically nobody's images stand a chance under close scrutiny.

Its obvious all taste is different. I personally see on many challenges that some of the images that I felt had a good chance at the top ten end up with really low scores. To each his or her own I guess. I am still trying to figure out what appeals to most.

Wonder what they pay? I'd certainly enjoy it more than my current job...

If your goal here is to win ribbons, the appeal to the vox populi, and just look at the winners for the categories that appeal most to you. Emulate them.

If, however, you want to ribbon on YOUR terms, ie shooting images that meet the challenge and aren't DPC friendly...well...in over 500 challenges entered I have ribboned only twice. But each time it was on MY terms. Not DPC's, I did not sacrifice myself and my shooting style, like others have, simply to win a virtual ribbon.

FWIW I would love to ribbon more, but DPC is too narrow-minded for what I do 99.9% of the time.

ETA: Cory, Ryan's monitor is only 24'. And nope I don't know what Alamy pays but they have a US office. Have fun!
