I had an image I thought was more Zen like but submitted something else instead so that it fit the challenge description. Boy that was a mistake. Ah well, it wasn't DPCish anyway so I had it coming.

Hmmm I`m guessing that the most of us arent really into "Zen photography style"... We just went with the description of the challenge... Well.. at least I did :P

Well, mine doesn't fit that description. And, I'm learning this stuff right now. I want to become better.

And I respect everyone's opinion, except that person who always tells me my stuff is crap. (But I'll smack him around at work...haha). This is a lot of fun for me. I enjoy it. I'm remembering why I enjoyed this 16 years ago back in high school.

I want to say thanks to everyone here for that.

To be honest, even I dont know much about "Zen Photgraphy" style, but I feel the words "serenity, simplicity, harmony" though aptly define the theme, are themselves "abstract" (and subjective) so as to give different meaning to different people :) I think I will have to leave it to the "feeling" of harmony (for voting criteria) and not everyone gets same feeling from same subject ...so there is going to be lots of variation (confusion?) in seeing the fitment to challenge.

...but then as they say - from the chaos arise the ultimate calm :)

The foolish reject what they see,
Not what they think;
The wise reject what they think,
Not what they see.
Observe things as they are
And donít pay attention to other people.

Given my utter lack of knowledge, and my difficulty piecing together the numerous examples from various threads into a single style, I'm delighted that my one comment so far is from someone who clearly got my point and gave me a 6.

The rest of the voters so far are clearly morons. ;)

P.S. Before anyone responds that people are entitled to vote how they like, that last line was a JOKE. I have no clue how to judge this challenge, so whatever I get will be just fine.

Seems like everyone is "Ghost Accounts, Recalculations, and A Suspension" thread.

I got just one vote in last to hours but the good part is that I already have 3 comments on just 21 votes :)

I've decided to vote in blocks of 50, then comment on those. So I've got my first 50 voted on and I'm at 20 for comments.. slow going but eventually everyone should get a vote and comment from me if time does permit.

Going through I saw many I thought fit portions of the challenge description (either serene or calm or harmonious) but many others didn't evoke a sense of zen to me. Still if they were well composed and/or interesting I still gave at least a 5.

I got a beautiful, and helpful, comment from you. Thanks, Sia! :)

I'm currently at -

~You have rated 329 of 330 images (100%) in this challenge.
~You have commented on 8 images (2%) in this challenge.

I plan to leave atleast 60-75 comments but I plan to go slow.

can't wait for one of those comments! I was hoping to wake up to at least one. but the score is pleasing so I'm not complaining .:)

edit to add: "huh" I just realized hours ago people had more votes than I still do even now. I wonder why I would have so many less. odd

You spend too much time hanging out with electricians. ;)

2 good comments so far. It's just really hard to know what to base a score on in this challenge. The landscapes are coming thick and fast (all very beautifully shot) Lots of Japanese gardens and sand but not many shots that "SCREAM" zen!
07/31/2006 07:33:30 AM · #74
darn it. went from 6.12 right after i originally posted my scores to a 5.5 now. yikes! I loved this one too ;(
07/31/2006 07:34:43 AM · #75
Yay one awesome comment and at 5.3 -_- lol
