You just have to try harder - I got a 2.9 a couple of weeks ago...

It's still going down but very slowly. Long way to go... still hoping this might start to go back up some. I have received some really nice comments. I have a feeling this one will have a wide voting curve with scores from 1 thru 10. Hopefully more will be in the above 5 range.

Heading downward. Hope I can still squeeze a top 10 out of this.

The votes go up but the score stays the same. I can't wait to see the way the voting on mine went. You may expect to see a thread regarding it after Tuesday.

I can't believe the score of a dirty tire in a river actually beat what this is scoring...

It started out close to 7 for the first 2 days, big slope down to 6.3 since then.
Bummer.

This is officially the most stagnant challenge ever.

Moving back up. Really good comments and not just in a "great job" kind of way. Received a couple of long and detailed critiques explaining their lower vote. Much appreciated.

I'm so close to my goal. (6.0) At least it will be a PB and I have received some helpful comments.

I don't know where my score is as they are not on but I'm a bit frustrated in that based on comments, I'm being shot down by new photographers who have no concept of alternate styles of photography such as high key, low key etc. I can't say more. If the image does not "fit" where all is "normal" then I can only assume based on comments that they are voting me down. I am happy that some are more well rounded though.

BTW, I'm basing my assumptions based on the profiles of the commenter's

In any event, it's a shot that both I and the subjects like very much.

LOVING the comments. most are "this is not environmental" :P although, i think it's clearly environmental if you took long enough to stop and think about it. i guess i might have a completely different definition of what an environmental portrait is. oh well, i'm not complaining, i'm always happy w/ a 6+ score. they're hard to come by these days :P

No. Actually, I had the wrong environment in mind in that previous post. The score that I posted earlier was my Harsh Environment entry so I'm not even close to you in this challenge. My simple mind is having a tough time keeping the two challenge titles with the word 'environment' in them straight.

Hah! Must admit that was pretty funny.

Quiet thread overall though. I know mine cant be near the top rung as the ones I thought nailed the challenge really nailed it. But I am creeping back up a bit.

Yeah, I saw a couple of claims of 7+ scores earlier in the thread. I didn't expect mine to do extremely well anyway. It's a different kind of environmental portrait and is probably scoring a little lower (although nobody has said that's a reason yet). In a different challenge it would surely score higher but I'm not disappointed since I expected it.

It's a shame that you think that just new photographers would be the only ones to shoot you down.
