It's amazing...just when I think I've got a really great photo, I reach an all new low.

4.2 after 13 votes.

I think im gonna come last with this one

Somewhere in the 4s. I expect it to fall further. Both of my current challenges are doing very, very badly.

My shot isn't really "poor" enough (economically speaking) to appeal to people, I imagine.

started out decent, falling quickly

I am so f'n fed up with the voting on this site.
10/27/2004 01:37:38 AM · #7
I really think you guys shouldn't even look at your scores for the first 24 hours. All you will do is suffer great angst as the scores shift wildly up and down due to the low volume of votes cast.

Chill people, it only started an hour and a half ago!

lol, take a deep breath and relax. This is all virtual, its just for fun, if you think that your photo is good and meets the challenge well, then thats all that matters. Mine is in the 5's and will never reach a 6, it meets the challenge well and is an average photo, so i'm totally ok with that. Just don't worry about the voting and have fun :)

I worry because I submitted some of my photographs to a Gallery for approval in an upcoming showing...and if I look at the people of this site as a microcosm for the general viewing public, then I'm never going to a) get approved, or b) sell any of my work, because apparently it aint worth Sh*t.

My votes usually end up lower then where they start. Now it's below 4.0...so I should get my lowest score yet at around 3.5. Go me.
10/27/2004 01:44:33 AM · #12
At 13 votes I had 6.5 now i'm at 5.9 and faaaaliiiinnngggg....

I wanned to say that too. Seen some pictures in the challenge and I thought hey if this is the poorest they could find they must be really lucky people. Unfortunately where I live things are quite the oposite.

I must agree on my first sweep through the images that the interpretation is wide and varied. Me i.m at about 4.5 which is a much better start than Schooldays, and I think I have a stronger image. however why worry its only a game of numbers. If only one other person sees something in one of my images I'm happy, Hell I dont think I'll get a ribbon any time but its the taking part that counts.

im getting trashed but then again my photo didnt turn out how i wanted it to. im about 4.2 right now ...gimme a year haha

score is nothing special (i figured it should be doing better than my other current one, given this one is actually in focus and quite sharp) but i am impressed that in just over 4 hours, I've already garnered four comments. go you, you commenters! very impressed!
10/27/2004 04:49:45 AM · #23
My best challenge ever, but I'm not a member so I don't get the addictive 'UPDATE' button! I wonder how I'm doing now?
