It seems in every challenge there are a few shots that are truly awful. I mean TRULY awful. Extremely out of focus, extremely dark, and/or no mind for composition whatsoever.

Ah well beauty is in the eye of the beholder, there is no accounting for taste and sometimes we are not awake yet and can't see our screens.

However, I am 9th on the Hor or Not Listall is well with the world. :)

Happy weekend my DPC friends.

****Resurrecting this post again; just to say; I did erroneously say "there before the grace of God Go I" when it is "but for."

I would have to say after reading this whole thread that the so called "bad" shots are often the gems of this site.

Just like a consumer that strives for the look of the "girl in the fashion magazine," we all chase the phantom that is the sharp, oversaturated candy photography, shallow and much like postcards and hotel art. The real deal, the shapely woman, the woman with brains and some junk in the trunk, just like that, those are the photos that we should praise and elevate.
