I've seen it all now ! I got this comment:

Background seems ****** *** *** IMO detracts from the subject ...

I shot this photo with the intention of the backgound to get the WOW and attention!

I blacked out some info that may give away the shot.

Dropping steadily.... hope it doesn't drop anymore I was in possible ribbon territory now I may be lucky to get front page. But hey its still a pb so I suppose I shouldn't be complaining. I was just hopeful for more on this one.

Still plodding along with some great comments and a 5.9, think I'll be happy with top 25% at this stage.

Dropped a lot today after lifting nicely in the previous 2 days. Had an acceptable comment from Posthumous... usually gives me favourable comments in the images I usually score poorly in...wonder what that means?

I had 2 comments. One says I don't like *****. I knew going in that my "subject" was not one well received on dpc HOWEVER, I thought b/c the real subject of this challenge was the negative space, I would get a pass....

....I guess not

As it stands I would have to avg 5.75 for the next 80 votes to break 5.5 it ain't gonna happen!


If you knew your subject had a good chance of bombing due to whatever reasons and you did it anyway then why are you surprised at the out come?

I'm not sure what subject your talking about but if you want to use 'flowers' as an example (way, way, way over used) and compound it by using a white or black background, it's like choosing to eat at McD's,(served over a billion) fast, is simple, and no matter which restaurant you eat at their food all tastes the same, the reason its so cheap to dine there(lower votes). Where as you go to a gourmet restaurant you may love or hate the food but at least its fresh new and not on every other street corner and you get what you pay for. (more votes).

So let me get this straight...

If the challenge was a Free Study you would rate a flower lower than other shots JUST BECAUSE IT IS A FLOWER? So you would close your mind to flowers, no matter how good the shot is?

I have a guy I work with who is just like that. If he sees a cat in a picture, no matter how good, he will not go higher than a 4 ! I asked him why and he said "too many people take pictures of cats...and I hate cats!" That is hardly fair to the photographer.

Actually, I just gave a flower a 9 because of the way it was presented it was outstanding. But my point is still the same, these pix are very rare. I think I gave only 1 flower shot a below 5.

It's official. The number of votes I've received in the Negative Space challenge has now exceeded (by 4 votes) the number I've received in the Backside challenge that has been in voting for 48 more hours. Amazing.

Backside 106 votes
Negative Space III 110 votes

My score took quite a dip from 5.9 down to 5.5, and now its slowly climbing back up. I guess I'll be happy if it stays where it is now.

non members can't vote on member challenges so there are more potential voters on open challenges.

Hadn't thought of that but it's still a low number of votes relative to "normal" levels at this point in the week.

ok well also many people vote at work or in front of their children and backsides has some nudity in it and the filter doesn't save you when voting, so maybe people want to keep their job:)

p.s. Those wondering about comments, I know a lot of people like to vote first then comment later so it just might take a little while.

You have rated 370 of 372 images (99%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 285 images (77%) in this challenge.

If I didn't comment on your photo, that means you matched my idea of negative space.

Hmmmm....not according to your comment on my photo!! You are in contradiction of what you wrote here.
06/23/2007 11:37:26 PM · #173
Aw shucks, Mr. pasthumorous, I don't get your magic words because I inhabit the negative spaces of your awesometimes mind? Bummerissimus.

mind your logic. the inversion of a true statement is not necessarily true.

Mine failed the posthumous test of negative space. But it kinda met the good picture test. I think.

What I will say is I think it's quite impressive that you commented on 285 images. Took me all week to vote Backsides and that was with no comments so far. Freakin' challenges are just too big these days!
