Let's see how good everyone is at predicting their future "Obsolete" score.

I'm guessing mine will pull a (growl) 5.5, because my dog licked the CF card with the good photo, and my kid uploaded the wrong one while I was away on a business trip. In no way will the up and coming 5.5 be in any shape or form attributable to my lack of photographic skills (or ideas).

But seriously, if I pull better than a 5.5, I will jump for joy (it ain't gonna happen).

I'm thinking the usual for me--about 4.3 or so...sad, I know. :(
Oh well, we'll see.

I absolutely love my shot, which is a certain kiss of death... so I'm guessing 5.40 or so. ;)

Over 430 submissions? I'm banking of over 5.0 and hoping for top 50% lol

mine will either pull a low six, or a mid 4 - that seems to be the way with my pics - and i never can tell haha.
Unless of course Slippy starts talkin smack - then my score will be whatever score will whoop his arse.

434 entries as of 11:10...
I was at a museum for 2 days...I would have hoped for more choices, but i went with one my wife liked the best.

We both liked this one a lot too. I went a more conventional way, and had 2 with people...figured i'd avoid the issue and skip 'em.

So I am hoping to beat my average - so pretty much anything over 5.0 is fine with me. I worked a bit on my title this time. That may help - yeah right.

I predict that I will stay far away from the computer I edit on so that I will not submit another mediocre image to waste everyone's time and enrgy. I only have to last another 45 minutes and you all will be safe for another week! :)

Hope the submissions arent as weak as the Metal photos...
06/28/2005 11:26:18 PM · #11
ill be lucky if anyone votes on mine
06/28/2005 11:27:27 PM · #12
5 and I might pull it in the next half hour. 430+ entries is just way out of line, I think, and rather than let voters suffer through another shite shot, I might just save them the trouble.

Low 5's for mine. Almost didn't submit it, but what the hell...
06/28/2005 11:32:53 PM · #14
I would say about an 8.4, or thier abouts. Yeah its that good. At any rate, see you guys in the rear view mirror.

/Sarcasm Galore. :)

Given that there is going to be close to 500 entries again (right now it is at ~450), I predict that I'm going to be average: 5.5
If there were less entries I would have hoped for 6+. I'm afraid that not everyone will vote on all images, and those that do will have an average of 5 seconds to make up their mind.-> it is decent, nothing spectacular or nothing wrong with it -> click on 5 and proceed.

I'll update my description right now with the prediction, and I'll look it up in a week from today.

oh crap mine blows
what a 1st submission :(
I meant to redo it, forgot to :(

Well.... I thought I had a good idea, I went out of my way to capture it, but I can't help thinking that the result has too much of a 'snapshot' quality. Don't expect to excel in this one!

a crashing airplane cant catch up to the dive my obsolete score is taking....maybe a self portrait would have been better
07/01/2005 01:40:22 AM · #24
My first entry! and it looks like a 4.2 :(
I think if I had some experience doing PP I would have faired much better because the shot was pretty good.
