I'll accept suggestions for the hidden item any time. :)

Unless there's someone who has a shot at getting under my score ...

Edited to add: At least the last two comments have been very clear about why they think it didn't work! To me, that's a very good thing.

Unfortunately you have to join within the first 24 hours of voting. Be sure to keep a look out for next weeks challenges as no doubt I will be running these side challenges with those as well.

If you are unsure then check my bio page for the links.

Hehehehe...well I will add you in the future ones...but I still need you to log into the thread so I know whether you have entered or not.

OK Judi will do. Well I am entered for both Wind II and Landscape in Portrait.

BTW this is looking like a better and better idea...my Train score peaked at 4.8686 and is now 4.805 or something dismal like that. Sometimes the sheer seeming capriciousness of the voting on this site drives me 'round the bend.

I used a sharply focused shot, a good angle and most of the rules of composition...then I used ONE - count 'em, ONE - PS filter on my Train -and am getting pilloried for it.

How many other people are driven absolutely insane by this?!

Let's just say that my first response was going to be to tell you you're doing well if the capriciousness only "drives you 'round the bend" SOMETIMES. :)

On my oxymoron entry, I actually got more 10s than 9s. Commenters averaged 7.4 vs. a 5.6 overall score. And so far in bokeh III, most of the comments are things like "love it." Score: 5.7.

I just take it as I'm connecting well with a small but devoted group. :)

groan...4.8084 on my choo-choo...what did I do to deserve that?!
10/28/2006 02:17:56 PM · #237
oops sorry, 4.8402...oh well all the same to me, still quite a slide from 4.8686...btw I see in some posts people are able to see precisely what individual scores they'd been getting (ie "I just got a 3"), while their pic was being voted on. Is this feature still operational and if so, where do I find it?

It's not a feature, it's obsessive behavior (I'm guilty of it, too).

To find out the latest vote, you need to note your vote count and score at one point (call them vote1 and score1), and then note the same numbers one vote later (vote2 and score2). Your latest vote is then:

Vote2*score2 - vote1*score1

If you don't catch it exactly one vote later, then you can still get an average score for the most recent votes:

(vote2*score2 - vote1*score1) / (vote2-vote1)

aw dang, I have to do math too?...this is too much for poor ol' me...think I'll go curl up in a fetal position, wake me when the voting's over...
10/28/2006 02:49:24 PM · #240
count me in

Okies...how are we all doing. Anyone care to throw some current scores around. Only 30 hours till the winner is decided and the rest of us have to bow down to the alimighty winner.

Okay..who is first?

Ha! No no, that's bokeh.

In trains, it's like I've been saying all week. I think I have this all wrapped up, although I worry a bit that I crept above 4.1:

I signed up & I'm following through. I thought my score might dip a bit but no - it's maintaining. This is so very unusual for me.

Well, Alison, you may lose the low score part, but it looks like you'll get a new personal best out of this one, and that's way cool! Congrats!
