No, nobody had predicted themselves as the winner. That would be very bold!! The highest personal score entered so far is 7.585.

Last Chance!

My photo's score will be very hard to predict. If this was entered in one of the recent challenges it would score very high (for me), probably in the mid to high 6's. But as an open challenge entry, especially a best of, and due to the subject matter of the photo, I predict maybe 4.942. The subject matter will probably bring it way down, and that's a shame.

The winner will get 7.927.

So that's

Me: 4.942
Winner: 7.927

Well, I still have at least six candidates, and though I really like them all, I have no friggin' idea which I will finally submit. I know this will not be a 7+ challenge for me, but I'll take a SWAG at...

Score: 6.20

OK, so I finally settled on my entry, so here's my updated prediction:

Winner: 7.956
Mine: 6.222, 5 comments, 2 favorites
01/15/2005 11:01:54 AM · #86
Winner: 7.957

Mine: 6.531, 11 comments, 3 favorites

WOW factor trumps understated once again. But it was an understated year, for me...

Lousy score, but I'll still love that photo anyway.

My movie titles pic is another story..... I really thought it would do better than it is :-(

What the heck, I entered one so might as well throw some numbers out.

Me: 6.373
Winner: 7.985

Well since my pick didn't win the last two presidential elections and I picked the Cubs to win the National league pennant; my guess here will be just that: a "wishful" guess:

My score: 5.921
The Winner: 7.431

Good luck to all.

My first entry ever using a MAC to edit.. Ive NEVER hit a 6 so I'll go out on a whim and say a JUICEY 6.0

Looking foward to this one
01/15/2005 12:41:27 PM · #93
Oooooops forgot the winning score of around 7.6
01/15/2005 04:27:21 PM · #94
Me: 6.650
Winner: 7.750

Obviously this is a much anticipated challenge and I agree with those expressing the sentiment that the voting and submission period is too long. This one is hard to guess because you are picking images already taken rather than shooting specifically for it. But there had to have been some great, great images taken last year and it will show.

Like other free study challenges this will have high scores because better images are being submitted and expectations are high. Unfortunately the number of submissions is way high as well which will hurt scores.

I'm submitting an image I originally processed for another challenge but that I never submitted. I do not think it will beat my highest scoring image for the year, but it is better.

I long ago gave up trying to predict voters taste. However, I'm usually on the high end of the middle of the pack, so I'll put myself around there again. Mid-range or maybe high 5 somewhere.

Can't wait to see the entries! I really do hope there are a lot of fantastic beautiful shots.

Tricky, seeing as i haven't decided on an entry as yet :-)

If I submit the shot that is currently in, I think I'll score around 4.949 (around?). If I submit the other one I'm considering, I think it'll score 6.954 - but I think it's a less interesting photo. The winner - well, there'll be a touch of 'masters' syndrome for sure, and anyway folks' selections are so much more open ... I'd expect some of the highest scores we've seen. Let's say 8.416

I've broken my usual rule of not looking at my score - I hate the addictiveness of the update button - and it seems I'm not far off with my guess - slightly disappointing, as of course I really wanted an 8 :-)

How close is everyone else?

Guessing myself to finish around 5.7. The winner should be around 8.

The update is a must in this challenge - I am currently 0.4 below my predition but dropping.
01/16/2005 05:01:25 AM · #99
