Deb, I would like to be sympathetic, feel some trace element of sadness for your misfortune, wish that somehow things were different and your Water II entry was doing better....but....hehehehehehe ;-)

Bring on Week 5, Team Pentax is going to crush Team Outcats!!!! (Sorry, 'Outcasts')

I was trying for a "different" shot. I was also hoping for better results. Oh well.

Oh, you're too kind. You just wait BatBoy.... I'll come up with something for Yellow... ummm... well, I will! (Clueless at the moment, but that could change at any time.)

On another note, I like Rikki's profile pic this week. :-)

I'm thinking the hiding of the scores is a good thing. And I wish people hated me as much as they hate CalliopeKel. You're welcome to visit my portfolio and see several shots I *should* have entered. Then vote as if it were one of those shots, and that should be well within the spirit of the challenge, as I simply chose the wrong one.

I do understand now that the one I entered does, indeed, suck.

My worst start ever and one of my favorite entires. While it could not have been made without water, it may not be obvious enough. (Or maybe it's just a lousy shot to everyone but me!) Will have to post it after the challenge and see if it was voted down for DNMC, since no one is leaving comments!

I'm just bummed, because I thought my shot was fairly novel. It was challenging and required many takes. Especially as the subject was not always co-operating. And in truth, I haven't been all that impressed with many of the shots I did see. I saw a few stellar ones but a lot of the same ol' same ol.

How many "water droplet" shots are there?

So I think I once again have a unique an creative shot but it's going down in flames. My guess is that a) there is a bit of backlash against dodge & burn. Which I seldom do any real editing to my photos. This time I did. So my timing is probably wrong. b) some might feel it's too centered but look, there are times when a photo IS supposed to be somewhat centered, and this is one of them.

But my big frustration is that I've got a photo up that most people who've seen it outside of DPC have gone "WoW" and it's dropped dramatically since last night down to 5.5 (not atrocious but I think it's worth a 6.0+) and not a single comment so I have no clue what is turning off voters.

*sighs*

In otherwords, no ability to learn from my mistakes or to improve. Just blindingly knowing I'm amiss somehow but not where or why? That's what most frustrates me...

Well, what do you know, someone must of just read my post. I just got a comment.

sounds to me like you've got a picture that you've put a lot of work into and you like it a lot.
That's a good thing to have.
Congratulations.

Well my score keeps dipping. I can say with certainty that I cannot betray my own style just for the sake of a ribbon. I will never do studio shots of objects and call that art. It just isn't to me. So...I guess I'll hover in the top 40 or so for eternity always just short of the Glory. LOL

This feels like deja vu....my 2 sec score did the slight up and down 7.0-7.4-7.0 stuff and ended up being just shy of the ribbons. Guess this one is gonna miss too. :-( I'm feeling quite jinxed right about now.

Be interesting if this one finishes higher than the other one. I liked that one better.

Sorry team pentax, I jumped the gun. I am a full point above my average of 5.2400. I think I jinxed myself. I am now offically a sand bagger.
