I had voted these considerably higher than they finished. Anyone else have these selected to place higher?

This is my own image but I can't understand how a outstanding picture like this could only score 5.457 and end up in 146'th spot.

I have over 50 votes that give me 1, 2 or 3

And I just thought it was a funny picture.

I gave you a 5 on it.......the shadows across the back side just seemed to harsh, and something about the perspective made the person look pasted into the scene. I did like the idea - was very funny.

"2 flashes"??? LOL!

I didn't vote on this one, but I would have voted it highly both for the humour and the technical aspects. Some people here can't bare bottoms:)

Calling it a outstanding image is I think just trying to keep a straight face, I added something to the description.

But the fact is that I can not understand how people can vote it down so bad for just having a fu**ing a$$crack in the picture.

Its not like it is distastefull like many nudies I have seen in here.

Oh well I will not try to stir up more shit about the picture, I just think it is lame that sissies vote down pictures becouse of the a$$crack.

Everybody on this web site has different tastes Bolti. We just need to accept them! It was a funny photo and nicely shot. As was mentioned, the shadows on the guys back were probably a little harsh!
07/26/2006 06:01:15 AM · #7
LOL I didn't even notice the shadow, but it makes it even funnier - it looks like his shadow is trying the scratch an itch in that place that shall not be mentioned?:))
07/26/2006 06:01:17 AM · #8
I don't respect people that can't handle a white but :P

Oh well, I just thought I had to speak up for myself becouse this is my own favourite shot of all time that I have taken.

And it got creamed for including a white but.

I made this comment, tongue in cheek (pardon the pun)

the beach is nice, but there's a distracting ugly man in the way! ;-) looking at a man's butt doesn't help me here...

I was kidding...


07/26/2006 06:06:55 AM · #10
I was dissapointed with mine. It wasn't a spectacular photo by far, and it was an interpretation of the theme (it said "*At* the beach", not "The beach"), but I felt it deserved at least a little bit better than it got. Hell, I'd have been happier had it broken 5.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/525/thumb/366133.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/525/thumb/366133.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

The 1's and 2's with no explanation are frustrating as hell.

I either have horrible taste, or suck as a photog - maybe both. I really thought this one would pull me back to a 6.

Maybe I should have stated - what "surprises" did you have on images other than your own? ;^)

Usually after voting I'll take a peek and see how my votes stacked up against the majority. Frequently there will be an image or two that I just wonder how in the world could this image (pick one) have scored so much lower than how I saw it.

Obviously it's all personal opinion...
...anybody else have any "surprises" out there this time? ;^)

I am satisfied with the ratings that this image have got, except for so many 1s, 2s, 3s and 4s :) But what bothers me are the two DNMC comments. I thought this image fully meets the challenge. I went to the nearest place that could qualify as *beach* according to the challenge description. The image has water, a land bordering water, and some subject at that place. Just wanted to know what others thought about this image *meeting the challenge* requirement.

Left a comment for idnic, manishk, Shutterpug and chimericvisions. I'll try to catch a few more of the Beach photos as they show up through the day, as I didn't vote in the Lines challenge.

Edit: Added a couple of more names.

I can understand why this:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/525/thumb/363580.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/525/thumb/363580.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
is basically not pertinent to the beachy-weachy-holiday-woliday-cutey-thingy-wingy that the challenge title tends to inspire.

I don't understand so well why this:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/525/thumb/364605.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/525/thumb/364605.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
which has all of those attributes to the nth power, ends 76th.

Sad to see this beautiful photo at 64th.
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/525/thumb/366114.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/525/thumb/366114.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I'm with idnic. That surfer shot is GREAT. The composition is spot on, the surfer really jumps out of the picture the way a subject should and it has a very nice feel as well.

To me this image had the feeling of being overly composed (i.e. setup). First thing I thought of was how long did the kid end up standing in the water? I can hear it now..."ok, move" (to make ripples)..."wait" (for ripples to go away)..."ok, let's try it again"...

Fully meets the challenge according to its description, in my opinion. I personally felt that photographs of just beaches or water, lovely as they were and though many scored very highly, didn't exactly adhere to the letter of the description. I didn't score low for those though.
