It's gonna be a long week...it's gonna be a long week...no whammies...it's gonna be a long week.

I'm such a defeatist these days. I smell 4th already.

I can get the banana out for now though...

I'm pretty sure the identical shots were taken in manhattan. It isn't like there aren't 20 million people funnelling through there. It could be people having fun, but it could be two completely unrelated shots with each photog slapping their foreheads at this moment with a nice big "D'oh!"

mine wasn't the most novel approach. . .but it's fairly interesting visually. . .and there are at least three others who used the same subject/technique.

i'm at 6.04
with two comments.

meh.

it's no 7+ like it was an hour after voting started!

:o)

I don't think we are talking about the same ones. It's not related to a city. I'll point them out after the challenge. Now I have to go look for the ones you are talking about!

shouldn't be talking about ANY entries during voting...

So at 100 votes, I'll have a 10.8! :)
03/28/2007 03:08:40 PM · #63
My score's gone up again. I'm so excited :)

But yes, it will be a long week...

Whoa someone came back for a second look - votes number stayed the same but I went up a 10th of a point in the last minute...

BUT
I'm just SO down right now - I've had this run of 5.5's for a month now...this one is no exception. Just very irritated with Self and what I'm not doing right....

I REALLY need to find a groove for myself soon.... this is just depressing now week after week.

At this rate I'll be luckty if I even make it to the top 120. I really thought I had a good picture. Oh well go figure. I guess people don't really look at the pictures to see what is going on and not take the time to understand them. UGHHHHHHH I'm getting mad here. I'm tired of the 4's please DPC gods give me at least a 5. I'll take a 6+ but I'll be happy with something in the 5's.

QUESTION: I had one comment in Spinning that made it very obvious by their comment that the comment was actually meant for another photo. Can I go to that person and tell them or is this illegal because then they will know who I am and which photo is mine. I dont know what vote they gave me and the comment made means they could have voted either way.

Also what is the report comment meant to be used for.

Also tried to find out how to start a new thread. Can someone tell me.

In case you haven't figured it out yet I am very new to the site.

If they don't want you to know who they are until after voting they can vote and leave comments without showing their signin name. If it's questionable, rude or you have a question about it I'd go ahead and ask.

Um, you have have 3 6+ scores in the past month. There are plenty of people who have never broken 6 here. So don't be so down on yourself. :)

Regularly pumping out 5.5+ shots here IS a decent groove. Average on DPC is generally very, very good outside of DPC.

Thanks Bo for your PM (and Jeffrey for that cuff around the ears), that's sweet.

Woke up today and the sun is shining, there is a crisp fresh breeze, the beach is calling. Had a page through some "big names'" portfolios again last night, and I saw that my scores are not that bad really. Gonna pick myself up, dust myself off and start all over again. Tra la.

But first a jug of freshly brewed coffee....
