Thanks Melethia for the kind words. The "lovely" models are myself and the worlds best pastry assistant, Magrate.

If I could comment on my own Blue entry, I would put a Yawn, but no bag

Unfortunately, I did have high hopes for this one... not any more! Now I'm blue.

I got hit by a lot of ones. I was at 5.6 for a while
02/01/2006 09:39:45 PM · #82
At the moment I am SO bummed. I was really satisfied with my 'Blue' entry (even my kids, my biggest critics, thought it was 'wicked'). Started out OK around 6.5, but now, 70-odd votes in, it's 6.0 and falling. Maybe I should give up on photography and concentrate more on my sports..... LOL.

Don't sweat it, they are brutal tonight. I just got hit with a pair of 3's ;)

I am about 30% through voting and I need a break. I can't take looking at another sky photo right now.
02/01/2006 09:55:10 PM · #85
I've just had the save thing happen. Over the last 3 hours, 11 votes averaging 3 points per! Maybe things will turn around now.

Down to 5.9...gimme a break!

Out of interest, how do you know the individual scores you are receiving (sorry if this is a dumb question - I'm still a newbie)?

There seems to be a bit of a trend - the opening night voters are pretty generous. Then you hit the "slump" where some of the more, shall we say "discriminating" voters kick in and scores start dropping. As the week continues, scores will move up, down, up, down, but by ever smaller increments. On the day before the challenge closes, scores will start to creep up a bit, and somehow a bit of magic occurs at rollover and the final score is higher than when you saw it just before the challenge ended.

So sayeth the woman who just watched her first challenge as an update-button-enabled viewer. :-)

meanwhile, my Free Study entry, which I liked better, is at 5.5!

I don't know if I've ever had such a high score after so many votes AND no comments. Weird.

There are no dumb questions!!
There is a formula to figure it all out. But some of us geeks have an excel sheet to track votes. If you want to pm me with your email addy, Ill send it to you.

And I thought my shot was interesting...

Rae-Ann - you're a geek? I'm so pleased. :-) It's always nice to have company. (Warning - geekiness follows...) Heck, I even built my own computer. It has the most lovely memory in it - really very pretty. I should take a picture for my portfolio...

But I don't have the "check your score" spreadsheet. I can't keep track while at work anyway, and as you've probably learned, that "update" button only causes scores to go down. This, as I understand, is a phenomenon still under investigation....

That could have been me. Sorry, I don't want to make you or anyone else feel like giving up. PM me if you want to talk about it.

Yepp. I'm glad I took completely different approach. Overall entries I've rated this far have been pretty .. dull.

I'm stuck at a 5.0 since last night. ONE comment from someone who has several ribbons and it was a nice one so that's a plus.

Hi,
I'm new to this site, I didn't enter a challenge yet and I voted for the first time in the Blue challenge.. I found it very difficult, the images are so varied, from some less skilled but showing imagination and "good eye" to really technically skilled shots on tired subjects and of course combinations of the two... the common nature snapshots were the easiest for me to rule out but the rest made me dizzy :) (I voted on all)

I wanted to enter the challenge but failed to come up with the right blue ideea so I really admired the images that expressed the contest title (as opposed of just taking a good photo of any blue object).

I really love the idea of this site and hope I will manage to shoot something for the next contest. I won't mind getting low grades, this looks like a great place to learn stuff and have fun :)
02/02/2006 10:39:46 AM · #100
Well I just got my first comment that actually helps me understand why I have a 4.7. They think I need more blue, especially on my subject.

Okay... I had that thought, it's good to have it confirmed.
