your point about black and white and OE is pretty correct (in my opinion).
For me black and white is just a way to mask my lack of talent. I can not imagine getting through with color image at OE. I find it too difficult to do.

Grats! Fits in pretty well right now. 8/10 in Latest Additions are color.

I don't know what the site statistics for color vs. B&W on 1x is - but for my own part I got more color than B/W - monotone accepted:

32 colors accepted
16 B/W - monotone accepted

...and 20 rejected. (19 of them color)

So even if most of my published pictures are color, my acceptance ration on B&W is much higher.

this is really garbage. I wonder why you even thought of publishing it anywhere.


I forgive you for your rudeness since English is obviously not your first language.

Oh, yeah. Rejection #3:

I don't have alot of my images uploaded here too yet, but this one was rejected:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/855/120/675801.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/855/120/675801.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Reason why:
Of those who voted against your image, six indicated that there is a problem with light, four noted impact as a weakness and two selected motif as a reason for not publishing the image.

Another one:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/58247/120/753149.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/58247/120/753149.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Reason why:
Of those who voted against your image, nine indicated that there is a problem with impact, four noted light as a weakness and two selected motif as a reason for not publishing the image.

I was quite pleased with the lighting on both, but what do I know...

i am sorry if it sounded rude.

About that photo
1. Subject matter - no idea what you wanted to shoot, it resembles garbage. if you wanted to say something esoteric then i missed it and you failed as a photographer.
2. composition - i could not see anything great with it, it is ordinary at the best. focus seems to be everywhere and not everywhere too.
3. post processing - this is the only thing in this photo, as if someone took garbage and beat a photo out of it. Anyway post processing itself is ordinary.

Yaa being away from dpc for around a year i forgot here i am supposed to lªªk other's a** as people are not used to honest reactions.

I know since you shoot it it is dear to you, but it is not great. Have a look at it after few months and try to think what i said.
ps: you have scored a ribbon here so you are not dud photog, just that this your experiment is very bad (my opinion)

OK, this one annoys me quite a bit.

A 950 version of this (slightly less sharp):

Why do you care so much? It seems mostly at the mercy of a select few even with the member voting element.

Because I'm a competitive individual. Plus nobody likes what appears, to them at least, as unfair treatment. I don't see this shot as being of lower technical quality, impact, or motif than many of the macros published. Other than the orange background it seems to fit right in.

This thread is interesting in that it reveals something. Much like here when people struggle to win a ribbon there is a tendency to start making excuses and then devalue the very thing they seek (i.e. the ribbon). Same thing is happening with those trying to get in at 1x. It's a struggle followed by excuses and devaluation. Rather than do that assume your work isn't as good as you thought and look for ways to make it better. It is the only way one improves.

P.S. This isn't directed at you personally. I'm just using your post as a jumping point since yours speaks to the very thing I've observed.
01/19/2009 10:25:15 PM · #271
Agreed Richard. However, it's possible one's style differs enough that 1x represents a different road. To be accepted there doesn't reflect "improvement" as much as "change". I'm not saying I have all the skill I need and I don't need to strive to improve. Harldy. But I'm getting the picture (quite clearly) that my style doesn't work at 1x. Instead of abandoning the progress I've made in the 3 years I've been here and trying to hop on the 1x express, I think I should just continue to progress along the road I've chosen.

De Sousa gave a name to my road. I am a "pop artist". 1x does not encourage pop art.

Well there's the problem. You have others naming your road. :P
01/19/2009 10:49:30 PM · #273
I've just uploaded my third. I'm fairly certain it will get rejected, but I'm wanting to see if I can "predict" *why.*

If I can/did, I think I have a better idea of what to do 'next time.'

It's nice to have friends help you. I was struggling to name the road myself. The "Thomas Kincade of Photography" didn't roll over the tongue as nicely as "Pop Artist".

Sure, not taken personally. I did create an account but hadn't tried to upload anything until today. I selected an image I thought might have been their taste but it was rejected as being "too edited" - that made me laugh as a large number of shots on 1x seem to be overly edited. I don't think I'll try again.

My question for the Doc was more about why he was getting annoyed about it rather than making excuses for not being on 1x's front page.
