Fifth place? Maybe...maybe...maybe. I know there are people above me and a 6.8 isn't really ribbon worthy. (You hear that David?) Haven't had this many comments before the end in a month though...


OOOOOooooo, I hope your score is a fifth place. that would be waaayyyyy cool. ;)


Well, don't count on it. Now I know 3 people above me. You must be one of those. I'm likely coming in 11th now...


At the time we made this exchange, I was sitting at 6.89ish to 6.9ish. On the last day of voting, I dropped almost .07 of a point. Doesn't look like a lot but from 6.9 to 6.83 is the most dramatic drop I think I've ever had on the last day of voting.

That said, there were some cool shots in this challenge.

eta: to add a very important number ;P

I'm happy with where mine is - I'm hoping it's the start of a series of scores to pull me out of my recent slump.


Thanks Jeffrey. I'm pretty pumped about it. :D I appreciate the moral support. When you've been in the rut I've been in, beating your top score by .5 or so is a big deal :)

Maybe I'll one day see that thing they call a 6.0. My top goal for this was a 5.75 and I SHOULD be able to sustain that with 5.86 right now.

I think a 6.8 could do very well in Spots. I just finished voting. Some really nice entries but a lot of weak ones, IMO.

Thanks. I appreciate it. :)

Another 8 votes and not a change in score from 11:30 this morning. So 4-6's and 4-5's or something along those lines.

DOH! Everytime I get into the 5.89 range approaching 5.9, someone comes by and sends me down just a bit.

The comment spree of Saturday morning is over, but the score keeps rising. If we could just drag this contest out until December maybe I'll get a 7!

Congratulations! Above a 6.7...That's awesome.

Still a PB here, but the updates are not going in the right direction.

Well, doesn't look like I'll be getting back up to 5.9 and definitely won't hit that thing some people call a "6"?? Unless of course anyone can recruit a few 6 votes for me :) or bump their scores up to a 10 (even better :D ).

This is by far a Personal Best for me, so I'm pretty excited about it. Good to know that at least every once in a while, I get an above 'average' entry into a competition.

Mine too. .05 in the last 15 votes. So, that's about 4-5's and 1-6 out of every 5 voters. Liked it better when I was at the 5.91 mark and climbing. Now at the 5.85 and falling.
