Just 10 minutes to go for getting the first scores for non-members :)

I'm expecting more that 5.5 this time....
08/03/2005 12:59:36 AM · #8
I'm not even looking at mine. I only saw one really good one so far. I'm kind of disappointed. But I'm tired. I'll review more tomorrow.

NIGHT!!!!!

I'll say. I see a few themes here ... Title says affluent but photo conveys poverty; Photo & title imply affluence is bad; Death nullifies affluence; burning money implies affluence; ...

It seems to me that there are quite a few photos that don't meet the challenge by any stretch of the imagination.

And as always, there are a number that are superb! Congratulations to these brave and creative photographers for nailing the challenge with an outstanding photo.

Too "out there" I guess...

Ok. Something is wrong here. This can't be my score. Do you think I've worn out my update button that it gives me random scores now?

Affluence for the poor is an insignificant item in the eye of they lucky few who indeed ARE affluent, you obviously don´t know what a poor man´s treasure could look like..

You give a homeless guy $20 and he is more affluent than his friend. It's a matter of perspective.

No, it's really not a matter of perspective - it is defined as:
af·flu·ence n. A plentiful supply of material goods; wealth. A great quantity; an abundance.

The definition does not imply a comparison to one less affluent or wealthy.

For my votes - if it don't look like wealth to me, it doesn't fit the challenge. :)

Started at a 6.00 and hit 4.8.

If I've commented on anyone’s photo here and it comes across negative, please don't take offence, I'll review tomorrow in the AM and correct any wrong doings. ;)

good night.
