Yep, 2 comments.

I know I am out-classed here on DPC but I want to improve and learn. It's hard to know what you don't like about what I did unless you tell me!

Thanks... if history is any indicator I'll be extremely surprised if I don't get a ribbon!

I'm getting shredded. 3 comments, 1 good, 1 avg, and 1 that told me to put more thought into it. The thing is, I did put alot of thought into. Oh well, next challenge, please!
09/12/2005 08:47:44 PM · #82
My thing with this challenge has been the eyes, there are photos with muddy eyes or they're in the shadows or they have no life or they're out of focus. To me the eyes should be a focus point in a portrait.

I predicted my score as a 5.5 before I submitted.

But I must say, the 7 comments have been very nice.

Yep as predicted :) This whole last minute things just doesn't cut it :) But I don't care at all! I submitted the photo because it shows people who I am :)... in focus or not :) I've received great comments though. All the same about technical merit but what I enjoy is that 90% of the comments like the feel of the image... the smile, the facial expression, etc.

I've never had so many comments in such a short time and I'm not particularly interested in my score :) This time around, I'm just having fun :)

I have been busy posting comments and voting.

You have rated 152 of 287 images (53%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 119 images (41%) in this challenge.

Yet I can only get 3 comments!

If you are getting lots of comments, how about throwing more out there so we all have a chance at this! Please?

This is my 2nd challenge. I didn't realize how much the comments meant until I was halfway through my first challenge(Branch) so I decided to go back and add some more there AND in most votes I cast now. Only problem is, what happens when you truly don't have any idea on what to say? I'm not done voting but had to take a break.
09/12/2005 10:06:45 PM · #87
Just say what you like/dislike about the photo or maybe what you would do differently. I read your comments and I think you have a good eye and are on the right track!
09/12/2005 10:25:22 PM · #88
I started leaving comments because it looks like people aren't scoring too high at least by this thread's standards. I'll try to out do my usual numbers.

Shutterfly- you're doing great!!

I can't say the same. I'm a tad disappointed, but did learn a ton in this challenge.

I'm hanging at the 5.5 range myself but lots of comments.

I have a few comments, but I don't agree with most of them. Usually in my head I am thinking that the commenter is probably right and find the comments helpful, but some of my suggestions I am getting would just make my entry look like an average portrait. I don't want my pictures to look like an everyday run of the mill portrait. Striving to be different sometimes kicks you in the butt I guess. Oh well,.....with a grain of salt.

Had my first photo shoot for this challenge which I thought went really well. I'm a little shocked at my score right now.... most likely will end up with my lowest score to date! :(

People pics is not my strong point so was really tempted to do an animal for this challenge. Didn't though. Felt I needed to move outside my comfort zone. Not scoring particularly well (4.000) but the comments are awesome.....pinpointing where I can improve. For me this is a successful challenge. Thankyou :))

People who comment are not necessary right in what they say for that matter there may be no right or wrong it is just individual taste.

When I see comments that I think are way off the mark I just smile to myself and tick the helpful box knowing that the person is quite entitled to their view and should be encouraged to express it.

Keeps striving to be different it's what seperates us all.
09/13/2005 06:21:03 AM · #96
Okay... like some (many?) of you, I think my image is scoring below its potential. So, I HAVE AN IDEA!

Everyone: Go back now and raise every one of your votes by 1 point.

That way we'll all be happy! LOL

The hubby walked me through the editing process on this one, the comments aren't good. for me it's a learning experience because I favor B/W so color was a challenge for me. I also learnt that you can get carried away trying to fix your flaws!
09/13/2005 09:21:27 AM · #99
I've given out 90 comments. Did everyone get one from me? LOL
