My 2 most disappointing scores were both on images that had a story behind them. They are two of my lowest scoring images, but I don't feel that I was robbed. Rather I feel that they would both have benefitted from some explanation - which, of course, flies in the face of the feeling expressed often here that entries should be able to "stand on their own". Both photos mean a lot to me, no matter the score.

This got killed - Didn't even get to a 5 score - Thought just for technical elements it would reach a 5. I still like it as a portrait of mine.

I figured this would do better in the Humor II challenge.

Definitely a travesty. This should have averaged at least a full point higher.

I'd vote it a 4 max. The background is very distracting and the overall images is flat & uninteresting. The pose is also unflattering, hands are cutoff, I could go on and on.

Since you sound fairly new to photography, take what really was a good score for this photo and keep on shooting. You can only get better.

Thanks for your feedback, however before you judge how new someone is to photography, check out their profile. Check mine out and have a look at my second highest scoring pic for the look I am giving you.

I did have a look.

Out of all of my photos, this would be the one I feel most robbed on. Though it didnt score badly, I was at least hoping to break a six on it. However the sixes for me are so far away.

I'm sorry but in this case i agree with toohip.

You have better shots.

*edit* That is a stunning photo Hot_pixel, it would have gotten at least a 6 from me.

OK, I was very disappointed at this one's score, felt it really met the challenge and was worth a 6. The commenters about the hands being backwards, when they're not...

I have been involved in photography longer than you have been alive. Your criticism may perfectly valid from your relatively inexperienced point of view, but is not shared by me!

Who are you and why are you replying to my post to someone else?

I am the person you derided in your previous post to this thread.

Eh... I was giving Delta_6 my opinion on his photo. I never spoke to you.

Yeah he was telling me I'm a n00b.

I'm sorry it sounded like that, but it wasn't my intention. From your post and a quick look at your portfolio, I got that impression.

All I really meant to say, was keep shooting and absorb all the advice, criticism, etc you receive and you will improve.

This is what I try to do in my own photography.

I got it, but in that case he should not have quoted my post in support of your photo.

Yeah, oops, strap me to the side of the mountain and leave me for the birds.

toohip, your photography is superb, despite your short tenure on DPC! Your advice to delta_6 is not bad, but perhaps is inappropriate.

The shot itself ain't bad IMO. I would have preferred to see the hands, but really it's the post-processing conversion that killed your score. Judging from the color version in your portfolio, you had a lot of image to work with, but lost much of the detail and contrast when you converted it. Compare your entry to this version:
