For a minute there, I thought you took a picture of someone breaking into your car...

Ok, I even suck at sucking:

And Deb, how can you end the "Will Posthumous comment on Melethia?" game?

btw, I *did* like your morning shot. I was only asking for a scooch! That's not much.

Yeah a scooch is easy. easier than the lobster he requested of my shot. :P Lobster???? :/ I actually had to IM someone and ask them if they "got it". no, they didnt get it either. lol. weirdo. :)

Yeah, yeah, but even you will tire of the "which sucky one might be Deb's so I can comment on it" game.... :-)

On the plus side, two people like it alot. I'm now much happier. Love it or hate it shots do indeed work for me (see Free Study XII). Not scorewise, of course - those tend to suck scorewise - but for personal satisfaction.

Oh, and hint - mine's the one that involves a train and is in focus. Nice job not sucking, Don.

Jaded,

I'm so glad that was you who got that weird comment! :) Salvador Dali had a pet lobster that he used to walk on a leash in New York City. He also created a lobster phone. By asking you for "more lobster" I was asking for a scooch more Surrealism, and at the same time making my comment Surreal. See? It all makes perfect sense! hahahahaha oh, and I wound up giving you an 8, so I guess I wasn't too concerned.

edited to add: my score is spiraling out of control!

LoL. ok. I get it now. My original idea had more "lobster" but lobster is hard to come by in just a week(wanted to do it near a lake but couldnt find one to use), in a small town(couldnt find cool stuff),on a small budget(trying to be cheap.lol). espically when one is too lazy to wake up early enough to move an entire childrens room outside before sunrise. I had to pare back a little. ;P but thanks for the 8! can't argue with that!

edit! oh yeah! 5.87?? woo hoo congrats(so maybe if i win this challenge you'll all need to put some lobster in your shots)

First vote was 3.0 just after midnight. Woke up to 5.8 - a nice surprise! Think I'll enjoy the moment - I know how fast it goes down down down!

10/23/2006 10:38:30 AM · #113
Oh, you posers, with your 4.9s and your 5.8s. Like you know how to suck.

You are in soooo much trouble when I win and get to choose what you have to use next time.

I think there should be some kind of bonus for getting very low scores without any comments. Like, if it's below 4.5, you get to subtract 0.1 for every comment below 10 you don't get.

So my adjusted score is 3.0682.

Beat that!

Just imagine what I could do if I actually tried to put in a bad shot. I'd probably end up winning a ribbon or something.

Ehhhh. Am I ahead of you by a full point Deb? I sure hope not.
10/23/2006 10:50:48 AM · #116
I hope not, too! I'll tell you Wednesday afternoon. I figure that's when I'll look at scores again. That way this one has time to stabilize, the oxymoron score will be gone (yay!) and I won't have to look at the Bokeh score until it's been in the challenge for at least 12 hours. You have way more comments, though - I only have two. Not sure that's a good sign...
10/23/2006 10:52:04 AM · #117
i only have 1 comment at 5.16 so yours must be better than mine. 5.3 perhaps? :P
10/23/2006 10:53:26 AM · #118
I can hope! With scores turned off, I can simply assume it magically rose from the depths of FourLand to above a 6, too! :-) You never know... that's the fun of having scores turned off.

And hey, I may suck, but I write good photographer comments that make people laugh sometimes. So there's that.

Ah, thanks! I kept looking to see why it was doing that. Usually it's a big wide image.

I'm truly impressed with the harshness of the recent voters. Truly.

20 points in 6 votes. Avg: 3.333.

Now at 4.0 after 50 votes.

Edited a little late. Sorry Tim! :-)
