Because I shouldn't have entered....and the score reflects that.


What are the conditions to ask for a self DQ?? I just couldn't find it. Obviously I made a mistake in choosing the shot for this challenge :)

How much you can stomach before asking for a self DQ.

You're allowed to ask for a self-DQ for any reason (except breaking the rules) if you haven't had another DQ in the past 25 entries.

1 - hey ursula, back on SC!

2 - how long can you not enter challenges after self-DQ's?

Ivan, don't self DQ just for a low score. It's a challenge - nothing more. Just let it ride. In fact, turn off scores - makes life so much easier!

1 - Yes!

2 - No time restrictions. But, if you get another DQ in the next 25 entries, then you get a 1 week suspension.

It seems like at least half of DPCers see "street" as synonymous with "poverty" and 'decay" and "old age".

Sign of the times I expect, in Cartier-Bressons heyday the world was a much simpler place to be and people generally had that more upbeat view of life..

Another way to think about it, sometimes it's worth it to sit it out in spite of a low score because you might learn something from the comments you get.

Great advice, that is what I am going to do. I don't really care about the low score. BUT I CAN'T STAND LOOKING AT IT ALL THE TIME!!! I'm going crazy LOL

BTW, about the street photography challenge, every time I get a comment, my score drops! Bummer.

As Judi mention those are probably scoring well. I know the last time I entered something like that for the Beetles challenge it did quite well. To be frank, any time you have a strong photogenic model/subject you have to do a lot to screw things up NOT do well.

Anyway, I went a different direction this time and I'm paying for it but that's because it just doesn't have enough eye candy. The scene just didn't lend itself to it.
