My guess is somebody questioned the image.

And as usual, I'm sinking beneath the waves.

Hey, this is my first contest, I joined the day it ended. I ran around for 2 hours like 4 hours before the deadline and threw together a shot and these are my score so far. Does this mean I suck? or is this normal for newbies or is it a total crapshoot most of the time? I do have some great ideas for the current contest however so we will see if I can improve on this.

This is most probably why it tanked. If you plan ahead and really think about what you want and visualize it, your score will improve, I guarantee. Can't be really sure without seeing the image but i'll bet it's part of the reason.

Its your first entry so dont let it discourage any of your ideas, you will tend to see the winning photos are always the most simplest usually, just well executed and flawless. Your score is almost exactly what i got once when i entered a photo that wasnt very good. Common possibilities for a low scoring show is in my opinion: flaws in the shot (bad lighting, blur, focus); complexity (too much going on, too busy); and quality of photo (noise, ect).

Average score: 4.4029 Place: 218 / 245 Percent of photo ranking: 11%

Well considering I found the site only 6 hours before the contest ended, and while I was at work, my planning time was somewhat limited. But I should make up for it this round. Thanks

Don't take it personally. I find that the first few contests don't go as well as one would like. The best way to improve is to get critique! Speaking of which, I really should try to put together an entry or two now that work has slowed down!

Hey Jason, am sure you'll have more last minute entries in the upcoming months/years!

My first submission is still my lowest score and I loved it, scored a massive 4.2! (have come close to that recently as well lol).

Some photographic styles to better here, than others. And things seem to run in fads a bit. Seems like for awhile certain things are sure winners, and then all of a sudden it is out of favor and you get comments telling you something has already been done to death.

In the end, you have to decide whether you want to shoot for you or shoot for maximum score. Either way you will learn a lot if you keep participating.

And as already noted by others. A few hours makes it hard to get a high scoring image. The competitors here are serious about the competition. The spend a lot of time planning and executing their shots. The voters have come to expect this, to award top scores.

But take heart from this. This competion draws great photographers from around the world. If you score 190 out of 200, you still beat some pretty talented people.

Hopefully this stays above my average. I am happy about all my comments.

Welcome to the club. Comments are piling up and the vast majority are positive but the score keeps going Dooooown. Oh, the humanity ;)
07/19/2008 10:39:38 PM · #74
I only got 4 comments so far. They have been helpful i just wish there were more of them so I could learn to do better. This is kind of addicting though checking your score constantly. Now i just need to get my butt in gear for the next challenge.

This is my second challenge and I am wondering if my score will change much over the next few days? My husband ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' sempermarine says this is a fantastic score, but I think he may be trying to be nice. Anyway here is my score:
