Actually....that site has helped me grow a thicker skin. At first, I felt a sense of disappoinment and anger when I got rejected. Now, I have learned to view my imges with a much more critical eye. When I get rejected, I look over the image and try to see from another point of view. The critique section can be very helpful as well. I actually appreicate the ability to have much thicker skin now....as weird as that may sound.

Oh, wow! My first submission has just been published! I have a second one in screening.

totally agree.
there are too many photo comunity websites with the 'everybodys photos are wonderfull' (even when they are not) mentally and you don't learn a thing from them!!

Eheh, I can't wait to submit a few more and see them rejected :)
01/16/2009 10:49:48 AM · #108
My first reject

"one or more objects are disturbing the composition" - must be the beagle hehe

actually I am sure that I am not artistically skilled for this site. But I'll keep trying, just to see what happens

OK, for all my bad mouthing, 1x does have a purpose. B&W isn't necessarily appreciated here, so it would be a good medium for that.

And no matter what you think, this shot is absolutely bitchin'....

Zero Gravity

Oh, the morning "latest additions" tally would be 5 B&W, 2 muted color, 1 monotone, 1 selective desat, and 1 very colorful shot.

Interesting that you mention that. I'm fairly new around here and I don't have an opinion on it. But it's interesting to notice that my first published photo on 1X is one of the few (if not the only) photos I trully think it was underappreciated here - and it's a B&W photo. And don't get me wrong, I'm pretty harsh criticizing my own work!

And most are foreboding and sad. Seeing sad images makes me happy, and yet both emotions are fleeting. <reaches for the Xanax>

Help! I'm having difficulty uploading a photo for submission. I think I'm a failure before I've even begun. (I hope that this isn't an omen.) On my first attempt, the upload stalled for the longest time, so I quit. I just tried again, and this time step #4 lit up in red: "Avoid special characters in the filename. Stick to a-z, A-Z, 0-9. No blanks!" My file name consisted of three words with no punctuation. Should an underscore be used to separate the words? I'm guessing my problem was in having a space between the words, but it was unclear to me what the proper format should be. Can someone guide this techno-dunce? Thanks!

01/16/2009 11:27:16 AM · #116
Spaces and blanks are the same thing and not allowed. You can only use letters and/or numbers. Just take out the spaces and it should be fine.

Oh, yeah, and I just signed up and submitted one for kicks. Sounds like a fun game trying to get stuff through!

That didn't take long! Very slightly different version of this one rejected:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/901/120/715495.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/901/120/715495.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
01/16/2009 11:41:09 AM · #118
Thanks! It worked. I'm in "waiting for screening" now. Fingers crossed.

both rejected!

Suprisingly this ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/68346/120/586846.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/68346/120/586846.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' made it past the 1st screening phase. I don't know how many phases there are??

I do have to say the quality of the images are very high.
I was like a kid in a candy store when i saw all the amazing thumbs!

OK. Hating the folks getting accepted on their first tries without the requisite rejections. May be sorry I started this thread... grrr....

(Congrats, folks, really. Hell of an accomplishment!)

Are you using Safari on Mac? I couldn't up load either. Everything worked fine using FireFox.

Two.

First round means you didn't get instakilled by the site screeners.

Second round is for public critique/voting.

Shore Acres

I'm going to try...

Enter your FS ribbon - one of my favorite landscapes on DPC. :-)

Slightly off topic, but I was thumbing through a photography book at Barnes and Noble last night and found this image right there on the page. Now that's a trip! Too bad I was alone or I'd've bragged that I know the photographer... well, sorta. =) Nice work, David!
