I love that you guys are all so encouraging and supportive of each other!

I was up to 4.21 for a while, but now I'm back down to 4.19. I really thought this would knock in closer to 5 (or better?), but then again, my predictions are always waaaaaaay off.

lol I'm just incredibly excited because my last shot was like 4.6 or so.

I read in the scores thread that there are like a bazillion new registered users who only have a few votes and really low vote averages, that may have something to do with the general lowness of scores.

I just uploaded my next Challenge entry to our group area. Feel free to leave opinion, comments, etc. The old P&S is still my only choice at this point. I sure hope Canon releases that 50D fast!

I just think the idea of these different challenges are an awesome way to think outside the box and get shooting other things. This weeks challenges have me at a blank. I don't shoot portraits very well, let alone studio ones(don't have one.) And pajama's... now that is a stretch on thinking of what to shoot.

I did go to your website :) I LOVE your people shots, they are amazingly emotive. Amazing stuff there.

Thank you so much. People are what I love to photograph the most. Unfortunately, my recent move has put me in a place where people, especially ones who will sit for me, are hard to come by (population= 937).

Posted a PJ's idea on flickr, tell me if I'm crazy or if this would actually work :):) cause I would just get lost in the crowd on the portraits...

The vote will drop at rollover because I got a 9 from a user who's only voted on one image (she liked mine THAT MUCH, lol!!) but the fave....the fave will stay!!!

Great job to everyone!!!! We're such a creative bunch of people, I can't wait to see this week's entries!! I'm not sure when I'll find time to shoot mine, possibly Sunday afternoon.

I'm now up to 4.23. I never thought a score barely above 4 would make me happy, but since this keeps dipping back into the 3s, the score has been looking better and better!

Mine's fallen a bit into the 5.8 range >.< Still got to think about a pj shot this week. I think I over criticize myself and that might be why I haven't entered into a lot more challenges lately. The olympics gives me more motivation though to shoot. I used to be really good at shooting each week way back in 02 when I had my old account on here.

Well, there will be lots of refreshing for me tonight. I'm in a 1 to 1 here at work tonight at the hospital. Both my patients are sleeping... so I'm in for a looong night of sitting here twiddling my thumbs. (I wish the job I applied for here at the hospital would call me >.< I just applied to work graves in the operating room. We're a trauma 1 hospital so I think I'd see some pretty crazy stuff come in during the nights.)

ok I added another PJ shot to our group - based on a suggestion. Please give me some input.
