Terry, I'm right there with you ... my views/votes/score is just behind yours ... count me in the disappointed category also ... I was hoping for around a 6.1 ... I guess it's still early, so it might have a chance ...

You have to be kidding me? I saw it, it's great.


Not kidding. 1 more vote and I'm down to a 5.03. At this rate I'll be sub 5 before long.

I was at 7 after about 10 votes but it looks like there are some pissed-off voters out there....going down....going down.
I don't think I entered my best shot...but something a little more on the provocative side to go against the grain. It'll probably get killed or break a 6 if I'm lucky.

Tough crowd, eh what????
01/22/2010 08:06:48 AM · #110
Perhaps people are judging on a tougher scale as opposed to Challenge entries. I mean, in Challenges you're confined to a week, a topic and you're location etc. whereas over a year you should be able to spread way out and do a little damage.
01/22/2010 08:06:53 AM · #111
It's always like this with "Best Of", people hold you to a much higher standard so the votes are lower.

ARGH!! Landgon should provide us with free strawberry margaritas for this challenge!! :D


That's it... I'm making some margaritas to drink tomorrow night while voting and commenting.


good idea!! wait... does it make you happy or mean...

It's kinda' funny that at the present score my best of the year entry wouldn't make my profile page. And I've only been here a year.
01/22/2010 08:15:20 AM · #114
Tough crowd yes. I entered one of my "best" in my opinion at least, but so far it's taking a bit of a hammering. My guess is that people are judging the shots compared to the other shots in the challenge. There is of course nothing wrong with that. You only expect brilliant shots in a "best of" challenge :) So I'm not complaining. I took a quick look and there are some stunners. Well done everyone!
01/22/2010 08:16:11 AM · #115
I had to turn my computer back on and post this.....

I agonized for days over what I should use for my entry. I just noticed when I shut my computer down a couple minutes ago that my entry is my wallpaper! LOL!!!

I'm a happy, but apologetic drunk...

So expect comments like "I really like this photo because .... but can only give it a 9... I'm sorry... I'd have given it 10 but I very rarely give out tens... a 9 is like a 10, just with a little play just in case there happens to be something better... tell you what... if there's nothing better, I'll come back and give you a 10... I promise... I love you... oh damn... I just vomited on my laptop... I shouldn't had that 5th margarita... or that Jager bomb afterwards... I'm amazed this thing's still working... hey, is that a carrot? I haven't eaten any carrots for ages... I reckon there's a gland in our body that makes orange things just for us to be confused when we throw up and see carrot even when we haven't eaten any... have I told you that I love you? You're really smart... I like smart people... oh no... I vomited again... and there's more carrots... better get a bucket... don't know how much "carrot" this keyboard can take"

Or something like that...

I didn't enter my best shot of the year. I entered what I thought DPC would consider my best shot of the year. I was wrong. I'm sure I have 30 or more shots that would do better than the one I submitted. grr. Will I ever learn?

Ahh, there's the dilemma, what you like or what DPC will like. I've found DPC to be an unpredictable beast, so I gave up on trying to please it a long time ago. Now I just enter what I like and am pleased if it does well here too!

I did the opposite. I had two others that would probably hav more broad appeal, but I entered the one that I like the best. The voters are proving me right sofar. Overnight "meh" votes dropped it a bit. It's still decent for a freestudy, however.
