This should be my third 6.+ score in just 13 challenges (had two others off by less than .1). This site has been an interesting excercise and I have been learning tons. Not just in how to use my camera or photoshop but in how to think about what I am trying to do with both. Snapshots are easy but somehwhat less than fulfilling for those that aren't related to me. I have been pleased with the comments I have been recieving on a couple of my previous entries that let me know I am going in a good direction. Thank you all.

Voters don't know where I stand when they vote, so I expected at least some comments from the ones that voted low.

No studio here either, no fancy lights either - some ambient light through a window in the evening and a 60-watt lamp - with a sheet as a backdrop, and a family member as a model.

It went up to about 6 and then fell today like crazy... Got a few more comments, some neutral, others just plain didn't get the image at all. Oh well.

I have some idea that our egos, as competitive photographers, get the best of us when we are voting. It only really happens to me if I am in a challenge since I obviously feel that my image is the best. ;-) I don't think us people with the lower scores should take this vote and the comments as an indication of how good or bad the photo actually is since there is usually a bias in the vote. I'm thinking it would be neat if the general public could vote on the images, as a seperate vote from the registered photographers, to give an indication of how a layman sees our images in contrast to us photographers.

Mine has been dropping steadily - I'm wondering whether it'll hit rock bottom or the challenge will end first! LOL

I got your comment, and the note about the score (THANK YOU :D)
But - I don't have any idea what you're talking about in the comment you left. Okay - that sounds wrong. I mean that you've used a term I'm not familiar with.
04/19/2006 07:14:54 AM · #197
I have a 5.4 on a very good photo. I just dont get it.
04/19/2006 07:15:56 AM · #198
