|| It's been a while since I was active on DPChallenge. Too many obligations and little time for my hobbies. However especially during holidays I made lots of photos. Since 2004 I've been travelling quita a lot visiting France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Spain, Greece, Indonesia, Singapore, Belgium, Cambodia and Malaysia.
 For a long time I have wanted to photograph. I used some cheap film cameras before but I didn't like the cost and hassle involved with film. At the beginning of 2003 I bought my first digital camera: the Canon A40. After my graduation in April 2003 I left for Australia. Here I found out I really like to take photos :). However I was getting more and more annoyed by the limited possibilities of this camera. So when I got back I sold my A40 and bought a new one: the EOS300d. It is a completely different world. I still have a lot to learn but that is part of the fun :). The things that are now possible are simply stunning.
Danny's voting guidelines
Long time ago someone posted the list in which he or she explained what the motivation is behind a certain grade. As I thought this list was quite useful I have adapted it for myself. Please note that these are just guidelines:
1 - You didn't meet the challenge AND your photo is a compositional disaster, technically terrible, and probably not inspiring in any way.
2 - Same as 1 but you found some tie in to the challenge topic.
3 - Your photo meets the challenge but is weak in other areas. It is probably uninspiring subjectively. It doesn't speak to me and had no artistic value (to me). It would possibly look good posted on the refrigerator with a magnet.
4 - The photo is slightly below average. The subject choice is weak but not complete garbage. The photo was likely approached in an 'I don't really care' manner. It also looks like a minimal effort attempt.
5 - Average photo. Could be better and could be worse. It's OK compositionally. There is nothing particularly special about the shot. The photo doesn't show any strong intention. It looks like a quick attempt shot without much thought.
6 - The score of 6 is slightly above average. This score shows effort and good intent for a good challenge photo. There are attempts here at good technique, but not perfected attempts. There are signs of good composition and attention to detail. Effort is visible. The shot is subjectively ok, but could possibly be better.
7 - This score is above average. What sets it apart from a 6 is that the composition and technical issues that matter are all in working order. There is definite effort shown and the subject chosen works well for the challenge. There are beginnings of a good 'wow' factor in the photo.
8 - This photo has everything that a 7 has and there are compositional elements that are exceptionally well done. There are also no outstanding technical issues that I consider to be flaws. A score of 8 also shows some level of artistic and emotional impact. It's beginning to look like something I would consider hanging on my wall. I really like the photo at this point. You have done a good job.
9 - A score of 9 is not really an addition to the score of 8 as much as it is a subtraction from a score of 10. It's a great photo and it contains all the elements I consider important for a 10... emotional and artistic impact, great subject choice, great composition, great technical execution.... There is just something about the photo that keeps it from a 10... something very minor... something I can't always put my finger on. It's definitely worthy of printing and hanging.
10 - A photo that simply wows me... There is great use of art, emotion, colour, or lack of colour... the photo speaks to me... i can identify with the image... Most importantly, the photo inspires me. These are the photos I would study in an attempt to improve my own work.
