Seems alot of people don't consider that (smoothness) to be in the texture range. Good luck. :0)

Three comments, but that hasn't changed since the last four hours.

from what others have put here, so much for the world record commenting attempt.

score 5.2

I have almost 50 votes and no comments. My entry is doing nearly as poorly as the one I entered in "Letting Go". In that contest, I deliberately entered an awful photo just to see what would happen.

Smooth Texture is now an official oxymoron of DPChallangeland.

So much for the balking about "thinking outside the box" we hear so much about here. I knew my image wouldn't do well. But I guess I had to prove to myself that most people here don't "think outside the box." Actually, for the most part I like to see challenge guidelines adhered to also. But I have to say that many people here can't see past the, "if it ain't rough, bumpy, or fluffy, then dang, it ain't no kinda texture" generalization.

Texture II...I am doing pretty bad myself. I guess waiting for the last minute and finding out that my batteries were dead didn't help. My vitals so far:

Whew! Did initial vote on all of 'em and wrote 10 comments so far! Will do a more complete sort now. There are some great entries! My own is running in the upper 4s.
02/18/2004 12:30:32 PM · #39
Well i like my photo even if you horrible lot don`t.
02/18/2004 12:44:54 PM · #40
I feel the same way. This is about my 4th submission or so, but I'm startin to feel like I got to this site after its prime. Seems like it's going downhill right now and that the voting system needs overhauling. I dont want to be like "I'm not getting good votes so I'll just quit" but it seems like theres no constructive criticism going on, but instead just selfish (and probably fraudulent) activity with the voting.
02/18/2004 12:52:46 PM · #41
So you feel like you oughtta be getting better votes, eh? Well, I've been on this site since the end of November and have entered about 23 challenges so far. Sometimes I get constructive criticism, sometimes I get zip. But, I do feel like I'm improving. Scores don't necessarily show it, but I can see a difference in my own photography and in my eye for that of others. I already got (and get) positive strokes from friends/family, so to me this is important to learn a little more about what those who are not so close to me and my work see as worthy of praise. I don't believe there is any more "fraudulent" activity here than you'd find anywhere, and probably not as much as on some sites.

The ordinary meaning of texture does include smooth, rough and all things in between. Several of the dictionaries in my office use the term smooth in representative sentences with 'texture.' A couple of the examples are "the wall has a smooth texture," and "the smooth texture of soap, etc...".

I do think, however, that for this challenge you would have to do such a shot REALLY well to impress people (probably the vast majority) who headed into this looking for rough or detailed texture. I considered taking a B&W photo of one of my babies' butt (the "smooth as a baby's bottom" shot), but I couldn't bring myself to publish such a thing to the general public (despite the fun I could have teasing her about it in front of her friends when she's a teenager). :-)

Where can I find out how I'm doing?

On my profile page it says "0" for everything even though I voted for almost all photos

You have to wait until the coming Sunday for the results. All results are updated between Sunday night and Monday morning.
