Whatever its merits, this photograph was one of the more interesting images entered in the "Bedrooms" challenge (here's the link). It is a photograph of a bedroom: about the only requirement; but it attracted two 0.5 votes! I can only guess that sandbaggers were at work again. Several other good entries also attracted a 0.5, which I find hard to understand. Really these challenges are getting a bit tiresome...

Technically it's not a very good photo... it's a 2 sec exposure handheld and looks blurry,

Anyway, there is sandbagging in most challenges these days.

Yep, I agree, I would have given it a 0.5 or maybe a 1.0 . . . at least it complies with the rules and has both a title and description.

0.5 - "Poor image that doesn't fit theme or rules" - http://www.dpreview.com/learn/?/Help/ChallengesHelp_01.htm. I guess in that case you would have been wrong.

It's just that a poor image with one .5 vote, is not the most blatant case of sandbagging. There are quality photos that receive lots of these in almost every challenge.
