GL Strikeslip!

You know what I am finding interesting? There was some talk about the winners here all being of a "good-looking" nature. Well, I for one, hold my standards a bit higher than that, and I am sure many people here do as well. But I am seeing regardless, that these "good-looking, handsome" natured photos are fairing pretty well in my scoring, and it is not soley because the subjects are "good-looking"

I am wondering if this would have anything to do with confidence of the subject for one, and/or the photographers confidence.

Oh man I am exhausted! I think I am going to stop writing essays for each photograph or I will never get through them!

Well I just got done voting.

1-10
5-9's
20-8's

I dunno strikeslip, are you my 10? Just kidding, don't answer that! I do feel confidently in my 10 getting a ribbon, it was pretty unique, and well captured.
09/13/2005 11:35:27 AM · #109
My sumission is running at 7.2, but there are at least five shots that ought to finish above mine. There are some very good shots here and I will be happy to finish out of the ribbons but finally crack the 7 barrier if it finishes as it is running now.
09/13/2005 11:37:46 AM · #110
Wow Brennan that is amazing, GL to you, and I think strikeslip may have just pp'd his panties. LMAO, sorry strike, you know i wish you the best of luck.
09/13/2005 12:00:43 PM · #111
I just wanted to thank you guys for your hard work with the comments. Gotten comments from quite a few of you in this thread with great observations and advice - my image is not that great hangin in at a 4.7 but it's the first portrait of a person I have ever shot so this was a great learning experience for me. Seen alot of people taking critiques kinda to heart I for one just wanted you to know their appreciated by someone!
Regards, Michele

Hardly close.

Hardly close, what the heck did you get a portrait of the Dalai Lama. I didn't see that one in there.
09/13/2005 12:27:43 PM · #114
I am not doing as well as I thought I would be I am happy with the photo. I gave out one 10. I saw 10 to 15 really good portraits. I also want to thank everyone for their comments, they really do help.

I get the feeling Slippy's pumping out a high 3, to a low 4 score.

I can't be sure but knowing a little about his sense of humor

..."it's soooo him".

Good Luck...where ever you are.

Or....he didn't enter at all? Good call.

Comments have generally been excellent! I have had a couple of people who usually score 6 - 7's tell me it should be top five material then I just got a comment from someone who has never entered a challenge before tell me it is out of focus! lol..go figure!

I think of it this way... the 5.5 is split into two scores. A 10 for the equiptment I used (28-200 2.8L) and a 1 for me as a photographer. Average? 5.5 LOL. That's what I need for a perfect 10! get it? L series on a "O" lens coupled by another L. Just joking... haha Thanks for the comments, all are great, but seems that the people that scored me low didn't leave coments. Please coment...

I've been gone for awhile, but this is how I relate to my scores:

3.0 to 4.5 -- not too good
4.6 to 4.9 -- could be better
5.0 to 5.4 -- fair
5.5 to 5.9 -- good
6.0 to 6.9 -- nice!
7.0 to 10.0 -- w00h00! (never got this far, lol)

There's a lot of competition too. So I would caution folks (especially our newest members) to not sweat the score too much. I always look forward to comparing my photo to those around it after voting is done. Usually it's ranked pretty appropriately.

I know it's hard to watch that 4.x score but try to keep it in perspective! Another thing I do is go and look at some of my favorite photographers. They usually have some sub 5 scores too, so you're in good company.

Ok lets see if I can take my own advice after voting starts on perspective, lol.

So far, so good, for my first challenge with a 4.8, especially after viewing the great talent in this challenge.

I have a newbie question, I know what I like in a photo, and feel comfortable commenting about it, but it is harder to define in words what I don't like. Also, being so new, "what the hell do I know"!

Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks
