It's almost 19.00 pm overhere. I had the feeling too that the numbers have dropped in the last hour. But as I read before, a lot of voters vote between 4 and 6 first and then come back later to review them.
It says: comments: 2, but if I check, there are about 5 already.

Oh well, voting ends next week and a lot can happen in a week and I'm satisfied with whatever they'll give me, doesn't bother me, because I know it's a good pic and enjoyed myself tremendously when I took it.

This is an interesting challenge to score, as the term "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" seems to be very valid. There are a lot of good images in this challenge. More than usual, I think, however there are some images that just don't seem to convey any "beauty" to me. I'm sure they do to the creator, and even to others, but in this challenge, I think since the subject is so wide open to opinion, that there will be some very interesting comments made, and I'm willing to guess, that overall, score will be higher than usual.

Is anyone not getting punished for a floral shot?

There are so many really nice shots but as said some images, while very nice don't seem to have a subject that conveys beauty. Tough call but I'll give their "eye" the benefit of the doubt and vote on photo quality.

I got one Favorites and three fantastic comments. I'm surprised (as usual) that my image isn't doing a whole lot better.

Personally, I'm tired of all the bird pictures. Ducks, and peacocks, and geese. We really need a "bird" challenge so folks can get them out of their systems...!

Agreed! I might even participate in a bird challenge as that would be a new territory for me.

Further proof that a truly original and creative idea is never appreciated. :P

I have viewed all images in this challenge a few times now. I see only 2 - yes 2 - that are truly original and at least one of them is scoring low. I do see a lot of pictures of children, girlfriends, women in general. While they are good looking people, their beauty certainly is in the eye of the person who took the picture, and not the photo. I really thought (or hoped maybe?) that there would be more originality in the submissions since the obvious was so apparent. Guess not.

The other thing that bothers me with the submissions are the titles. If you have to tell me something is beautiful in the title, chances are you are the only one who sees it.

The Avg Votes stayed practically the same as yesterday at noon.
Comments are useful, got a 10 and a couple of 9's, but probably a lot of lower points too. I'll just sit it out and see what happens.

I've just finished scoring "Beauty", and have commented on 20% of the images, including my highest and lowest scored images. There are some truely great images in this challenge with such a broad description. Lots of flower shots, most of which got pretty good scores from me. Too many ducks, and geese, and other fowl, which generally didn't score well with me. There were a few models with too much skin...and three or four really great portraits. Geeeeeeeeze I hope they beat out the birds this time! It was fun scoring and commenting on this challenge. Good luck all!
