Woah!! I'm in good company. Mine's currently scoring just below 5.

Looks like I'm stuck around here. Commenters are liking it for the same aspects that I like it for.

History would prove otherwise. The Best of 2006, 2007 and 2008 were dominated by outtakes taken from prior challenges in which the image had already done well before. I would be shocked if that wasn't the case here.

"outtake" probably isn't the best choice of word for some. While the image in this challenge may be from a shooting session for an earlier challenge, the "Best of" entry may not have fit that particular challenge as well as the image choosen did.

That said, I ribboned in the Best of 2007 with a so called outtake. This year's is also an outtake from a challenge that was little more than a free study. This image is much stronger IMO, I had more time to edit, and yet it is scoring .7 lower.

Go figure.

That's disappointing, especially since I think it was 5.75+ and climbing at around 52 votes. It's very nice to get the fave, though.

Funny, I got a comment that said something like "I love this no matter what the other voters think". So I am thinking that I'm going to get quite a range of votes. My average score for the 37 challenges I've entered is 5.55 so I suppose I'll be happy if it's above that; especially with the incredible shots in this challenge.

I guess I'm okay with this score seeing how some of the people that I know are good shooters are getting hammered.....

Thanks for the comments! No danger of ribbon territory from me! (Not that I expected it either! HA) ;-) However, I'm always happy with a 6+ score, improving my average. Some great shots in this challenge.

Not just hammered, jack hammered!
01/22/2010 05:14:05 PM · #191
Back down under 6 now, but still my PB at this point. I'm loving the great comments and still very happy how it's going. Hoping for a big surge of happy voters throughout the week to push it back above 6 and keep it there. Crossing fingers!

hammered and no comments as to why. I'll never figure it out at this rate. *sigh*

Not too shabby. 2 nice comments are a bonus! It is above my average and I expected some really tough competition in this challenge. Looking at some of these post's I can see many people are not happy with their scores. I have to laugh at folks who are disappointed with a 6 or above score. Sheeesh!

When I get a really disappointing score like this, it usually causes me to see my entry with fresh eyes, and I start recognizing things I don't like and in the end I find I like my shot a whole lot less than I did when I entered it.

This one's different. I still like it, a lot, regardless of the score. So there. :-)
