I'm at a 4.8 with 37 votes.

I have only entered 2 challenges recently and am still getting use to my new camera. I hope my score goes up but if not oh well I'm still learning.

thanks for the 4 wonderful comments. Mine isnt technicaly "out of the box(as i have family in it) but it is way different from the others. good luck to all who entered. wonderful photos entered. I scanned the thumbnails lastnight and i am ready to begin scoring and commenting them. I have a feeling this will be a high scoring challenge at least from what i give out. Have a great day all and remember to keep a smile even if it is monday! :D

UGH - here we go. I'm already gettin negative that my photo doesn't mean "family." GET OUT OF THE BOX FOLKS. Read the title - DUHHHHHH

I swear, I think I'm going to go stick my head in the sand.

I've gotten 3 comments and 2 are bad with a score at 4.711 with 45 votes. I'm going to change my name to ICan'tPleaseAnybody.

I'm wondering if I score too high? But then, on a scale of 1-10, I think I am fair, not the uber critic. Is it naivity? I mean, if a photo is shot well, has mostly good points, but maybe needs a crop here, or a tad of contrast there, I still might give it a 7 or 8. I'm beginning to think most of the other voters would give it a 4 or 5!!!!

I did just get a nice comment so I'm feeling better. I'll quit pouting now.

Up to 4.87 - is it too early to start drinking???? Judy

Don't worry so much about pleasing anybody except yourself. You have a great eye, a great sense of humor, and you live in the greatest state in the Union! What more could a gal want! ;)

P.S. like the song says, it's 5:00 somewhere...have a drink for me too!

I'm with Laurie, Judy.

I know you spend a lot of time with your camera and think a lot about your submissions. Keep it up!

I am feeling really ill! First of all I am glad I did not use the ducklings and their momma I took yesterday. Also I am glad I did not actually use my family either. Once again my scores are alot lower than I expected. This is depressing. I feel this is one of my best yet, too!
07/11/2005 09:21:45 AM · #37
My shot wasn't really planned out, except at the last minute I siezed a shot that I thought might do 'ok' in the challenge. I don't have alot of time or opportunity to arrange challenge photos, they kinda just have to happen along for me.

Thanks Laurie and Cheryl. I didn't want to sound like a whiner but !@#$#%$ IT! I'd just like to get to 6. hee hee

The score is coming up a tad, so maybe I'll get lucky.

Maybe nobody gives 8 - 10??? OH well..... I'm going to stop complaining. It's annoying isn't it? Maybe the 2nd mug of coffee will help.

Any ideas for Independence??? Judy

I know what you mean! I have had a couple of entries into the challenges that I think they should have rec higher scores. Not that they should have won, but the number of 5's I get is unreal.

Ok...I have gone through the pics 4 times now and voted on all and will be going back to bump up/down. My general comment on the entries: disappointing. Out of the box shots on something as basic as 'family' I don't think will do to well. Just my opinion, perhaps I will be proven wrong. Shots of random kids don't convey family - just children. Nice shots, but still just children. Flowers don't convey family - why were they submitted? I can't even come up with an out of the box relationship for those. Shots of people in various settings - how do they convey family? They could be anyone. Nothing in the shots to bind them in any way as a 'family' unit. Telling me two people in a shot are brothers or sisters doesn't convey family. Just that with your title you want me to believe they are family. Again, just some nice shots of kids.

I think what is missing in a lot of these shots is the element that 'binds' the subjects together as a family unit and not just some random shot of people, even if they are family members. I won't even talk about the bird shots.

I hope this does not hurt anyone's feelings, but after reading the thread I thought you may like to know what went through at least one voters mind as he voted.

Edit: typos and structure

My favorite game has been to post a photo and guess what my score will be. Just as I expected, here are my scores:

I'm burning it up on comments; compared to my previous submissions. Didn't expect anyone to rave about mine, but the comments are much better than I imagined.

What really suprises me is how few submissions there are. I honestly thought this challenge would be bursting at the seams!
07/11/2005 10:39:58 AM · #42
it's futile to resist them
Just my thought for the day. Have a good one, everyone.
07/11/2005 11:08:44 AM · #43
What's with the "This looks posed" comments?? Is this a photography challenge or a snapshot challenge? Did I miss some "candid shots only" rule?

Gah!!! I'm going to cry! :) I've never done this well before--and all the comments are positive...Wow, what a way to wake up on a Monday morning...

It is amazing how many scores are low and comments are critical. What is THAT all about!

Mine's out of the box and I've never got scores as bad as this - I may pull it.


why the heck would you pull it...because you dont like the score..thats crazy....let it ride and see what happens and learn...no one is guarenteed a thing...expect nothing and then whatever you get is gravy...

I agree - why pull it from the challenge? (I mean once the voting has started) Seems self defeating.

Does that gravy come with mashed potatos?

I would much rather honest criticism and helpful critique than blind voting! I am happy with all of my comments. The good and the bad.

A bad is good if it is a helpful bad.......

An 'honest' criticism is meaningless unless it has merit.
