I'm so glad I wasn't concerned about a score on this one and entered what I did.
There is a story to go along with it and wanted it immortalized.

NO! She prolly gave me a DNMC score! Poopiefaces!

I have yet to vote on cindi's masterpiece so *I* am neither a doo doo head nor a poopieface.

Of course when I get to her entry and I comment with dnmc I will fall into either, or quite possibly both, of the aforementioned categories.

Well I have to agree, this afternoon, the doo doo's were out in full force..I have dropped .25 in 4 hours :((

Of course, unlike Cindi, I had low expectations for this one..then it started with a Bang!! I got excited, expectations rose...
now...
Doo Doo heads.
05/16/2006 06:17:59 PM · #86
Oh dear, it looks like my run of 6 scores is going to be one lol.
05/16/2006 06:22:11 PM · #87
*sigh*

My mind locked on "subject in their own environment," and I didn't take a picture of a person, and am getting hammered because of it. It'd be nice to be able to reply to some of the comments, or if people could see what other comments have been left so I don't get hundreds of "can you read?" ones.

I'll pay better attention next time.

I hope that's not what you're saying when you're frosting the pastries!

Edit to add: That is *not* a euphemism.

I'm still popping around a 6.0. When I look its a 5.8, then 5.9, then 6.0, then 5.9, then 5.8, then 5.9...LOL..well, you poopie heads get the picture.

All the comments are good, so there is still time!

05/17/2006 08:42:55 AM · #91
A repetitive pattern

Night voters - takes it from 6.77+ -> 6.60+
Day voters - picks it up from 6.60+ -> 6.77+

trouble is challenge ends at midnight !

ps - night according to US east coast..

05/17/2006 08:58:35 AM · #92
Yup, I started at a 6.7

As I predicted, it would fluctuate down to a 5.8 before rising again. I'm still floating at the 5.8. Thankfully I expect another 100 votes yet and there is still another 5 days or so of voting :)

I was at 6.2-6.39 yesterday and have seen a sunstantial drop like never before in my history. Things usually go up slowly at this point and I'd bet my absolute top dollar that there are a lot of angry, pissed off people getting revenge due to low scores. Could be wrong but I'd be willing to make that bet...tough to prove though.

But, was it a portrait?? I can think of a few excellent shots in this challenge that IMHO DNMC, so I voted them low. Of course, my idea of low is about 2 points higher than everyone elses.

As for mine, I have ALL positive comments including one saying mine is one of the few true enviromental PORTRAITS in the challenge. So, why am I down to a 5.3something? Doo Doo Heads!

I'm gonna be grinning all day at this doo doo head stuff.

PS What national competition? Share! Share! I might want to lose in that one too!

I plan to start working toward my Masters of Photography this summer. I attended a class last night where I learned all about how to submitt for Merrited competition and I will be preparing my first set of entries this week. I will be competing at FPP (Florida Professional Photographers), PPA (Prof. Photog. of America) and WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International). With luck, and some good guidance, I should be able to merrit a Masters within a couple of years.

The person who taught our class last night, Sheri Ebert, Ebert Images is one of the winning-est competition photographers in the US right now and her class was amazing.... included processing tips and "what always works" and "what never works" So I HOPE its enough information to give me a start.

"what always works" and "what never works"

Hmmmm, I would really like to know all about the "what always works" part. I think I already have down pat "what never works". :)

My best to you Idnic~! I am sure you will do very well, and love the Ebert Images!
