4.193 and 4.496

If you squint and just look at the broad outlines of the shapes, these are almost the same -- very cool (not the low scores though ... those could easily be a notch higher).

Scored 3.831 in the After Dark Challenge which I took too literally. This was before I learned to fiddle with the little buttons on my monitor that measure "bright" and "contrast"...

Grate Cascade...4.9


How did you manage to get such long strips of cheese from the grater?

From the Matrix challenge - too daring for the theme - hence the low score:

My first challenge. Should of been called Murphys Law because almost everything you can do wrong with a camera was achieved in this photograph. Average was 4.95

First challenge which scored 4.908.
Following week, I score better by 0.051... Hey, at least it's a wee bit better... LOL

Worst so far was my neon entry. I just couldn't find anything interesting so I tried to capture a flashing neon sign. Ended up way overexposed. Ended with a 4.201 that I thought was very genoerous.

Here's mine from the liquid challenge ranked 198 out of 202 at 2.9:

Should have titled it "oil and vinegar reaction" not "opposite reaction". Learned not to enter abstracts into a clearly defined challenge - voters have no way to know if it meets the challenge! lol

- of course, it may have scored low no matter what the challenge:)

I suffered from, "Waited until the last day and scrambled to find something to submit" syndrome. Also, from lack of studio area and materials.

Still, a 4.577 as your worst rating isn't *TOO* bad.
09/08/2004 03:58:26 PM · #15
Here's mine. :) I, too, suffered from the must submit something from the new camera syndrome. I just received my 10D and just had to send something in.

:) I don't think anyone is complaining about the 4's and 5's. Just 'posting the lowest rated photo here'.
09/08/2004 02:46:06 PM · #18
Everyone is complaining about 4's and 5's?!? Those are my bread & butter...just look at my profile...the Hope challenge entry is my worst (rightfully so).

When breaking the 5 barrier is your goal, then you can talk.

The more I'm on this site, though, the more I can see what people want and look for in a top photo...right now, I'm just having fun taking and posting things I like and find interesting.

This was my worst at 4.2. I have no idea what I was thinking other than trying to get something in for the challenge. The potential for an interesting photo was there but this wasn't it.

Had 3 that fell in this catagory, all at 27%:

One bombed because I wanted to be really different and found
out that strong manipulation doesn't go over well here:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/220/thumb/83041.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/220/thumb/83041.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
27% | 280 out of 384 | 4.952
And it was a free study too!

The second one that also bombed was in the Waiting Challenge,
and instead of "us" waiting for something, I switched the roles
and made it something waiting on us:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/225/thumb/81959.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/225/thumb/81959.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
27% | 227 out of 309 | 4.534

Third and lastly was my very first entry, and I plead
newbie ignorance on this one (wasn't THAT bad...)
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/205/thumb/68772.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/205/thumb/68772.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
27% | 206 out of 283 | 4.736

Bad lighting and focusing on to many objects.

Just one of my really bad ones! ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/43/thumb/8704.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/43/thumb/8704.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Yellow challenge. was playing with the monitor setting so it looked yellow to me.... lol - learned a lot since then
