JUst voted, a lot were not shallow depth of field, but there were many good shots there, so my voting was quite high. I just wish people wouldn't submit postage stamps! My poor old eyes can't see them properly.

Whilst Han doesn't want to jinx her soon-to-ribbon score, I withhold scores from shame :(

In my case it would either be bragging or embarrassing. Neither is nice, and there's not too much in between.

Now this kind of help and suggestion like this from fellow DPCers is what this is all about.

You RAWK!
Thanks.


Glad to offer my opinion, er, help. :-P I'll have to remember to check post-challenge which is yours.

Cheers.

So, not great, but I don't think too bad for a first entry.

Wow - Shallow comments for sure - First challenge i have not had one comment - As usual i thought the image was OK and it's flopped - Just one comment would help me know why!!

Jeff - The confidence has been shattered after getting 5th place in the best of 2006!!!

Well, after a few questioning comments, I asked the council to validate my entry.

And it was validated.

And my score has risen steadily since.

Not that it is that great of a score.

But, I do feel validated. I normally do not look to others for validation, but in this case, it was the only way:)

I'm in 3 challenges now (Personification, Free Study, and Shallow DOF), and I have the same score in all 3 (5.9, within a few hundredths), which is also my average over all challenges. I'm definitely consistent.

But the interesting thing is that all the comments on my Shallow DOF entry are negative, and all the comments on my Free Study are positive. Personification comments are all over the place.

I suspect this will be a low scoring challenge. Too many different interpretations of shallow DOF.

I was hoping to pull out a 5.5, even though this isn't a shot I was overly enthusiastic about, still.. a 5.35 is better than a kick in the nuts.

I have a good score in my consistent "also ran" range:

6.57
With only 5 comments
1 favorite

I'm glad it is ending tonight. Then I just have to watch my Free Study score go back and forth from 5.9 - 6.02 one more day and can get a rest from update anxiety :)
