Hey folks, got a 5.61 for my April free study image, that is the highest free study score of mine yet, beating out a 5.4 something for burning rivalry, which was also taken with my Alpha. Seems like my new camera is making a slight difference to my scores, also, I am paying a LOT more attention to what I am doing.

Congrats on the new PB! I left a comment on your shot.

Hi guys. Just came by to see what's up these days. Drummie, congrats on the sales! And I like doors and windows, too. For one thing, they never complain or yell at you when you try to take their picture, and they generally hold still. :-)

Thanks! I'll break out the dvd with the originals on and see what other options I had and try playing a bit with EV in the ARW file and layers in PS.

In the Team Suck thread

Kelly, I have a suggestion with respect to the DPL - form a team of the Under 5'ers. Why? Heresy, you say? Not really. New environment for DPC - the age of suggestion and collaboration is upon us. I have a lot of thoughts on this matter but not a lot of time at the moment (will have to get my butt out the door and head to work shortly) but here's the benefit as I see it: teams have a private forum for discussion, and can see and discuss each other's potential entries prior to a challenge. You can help select shots and make processing SUGGESTIONS. You can't help process (or at least that's how I read the rules). You can't vote on your teammates entries. It has the potential to be an exceptional learning tool. More than one team that has formed has publicly stated that scores will be irrelevant (much to the consternation of those teams who WANT to compete, though for the life of me I can't figure out why this would bother them).

Anyway, it's a thought. I was approached yesterday by someone with this in mind and I'm considering it seriously. The point being to help when asked and provide critical comments afterwards - much like Team Suck but on a smaller (5-7 people) scale. And NO, I don't plan to leave here if I do that. Not a chance.

Deb, that's an awesome idea but I really can't do it. I can barely keep up with the things I am interested in currently, much less form a DPL team. :-)

edit: oh or if *I* wasn't the one to form it, then I would consider joining that team...

What a great idea!!! I am already involved in a team so this is not my bid to join or start one, but I think this is a FANTASTIC idea!!! Any takers!!! What a great way to learn!! I too am in TS and it's very very cool to have the support and advise from fellow suck members...oh yeah, and sing the songs of joy when things go well, lol. This could be the same on a smaller scale, Hope to see someone run with it....Good luck!!

05/16/2007 01:21:26 PM · #261
My symmetry submission took me over the 5.0 marker and now it's slowly going up from there thanks to my album and silk pics :) But I'll certainly still hang around for moral support! Hell, I may be back after my selective Desat picture!
05/16/2007 01:32:53 PM · #262
congrats :) even though we shouldn't mind scores here, bravo! and thanks in advance for stickin' around :P

Hey, I was the last post before you...I was waiting for someone else to post...ROFL!!
06/05/2007 08:16:14 PM · #268
Yeah... me too?
Heh!

I'll bite

I think it is a bit of a click this website. I think people edit their photo`s way too much even in basic editing. In my opinion the picture should be as you took it.
I will probably always be under 5 as I don`t conform to other peoples standards. If I like it I take it. Visit my profile at //www.flickr.com/photos/saswaa

Respect to all the sub 5`s

Hiya! Took a look at your flickr photos.. I like them!
Added you to the list in the first post.

As far as editing.. everyone has their opinions about that. Personally... hm, well a lot of people do really nice glossy perfectly sharp over-saturated landscapes, and while I think they're nice I really have seen enough of them on this site, for the most part, and am more intrigued by those that look more "natural". But I think post-processing when used to enhance what is there can be so great, and sometimes digital art is fun too. :-)

Thanks for the positive response. Hardly ever get that from people on here. Usually too dark, not enough detail.lol

Thanks

okay, i've finished hibernation... wait... it's only fall over here! doh! well, anyways, i'm back, and with all the fury of a rabid chipmunk! i entered into S-Curve and i'm pulling out AT LEAST a 5.3! that makes it my third best so far! i didn't even stretch myself for this challenge. i just used my rebel to pull out a technically decent shot! anyways, the AUF needs to be revived i think...
10/02/2007 10:41:27 PM · #274
I very recently crossed the avg of 5, could I join in.
(I am little crazy though).
10/03/2007 01:07:07 AM · #275
we're all a little crazy 0_o'
we can get you in as soon as our fearless and fearsome leader returns... which could take a little while. she's going to have to notice our return...

ps. YOU did "Born Slave"? i find it to be a very dramatic and ... curious photo. we are humbled to have you in our presence ^_^
