On Really? in the The Moment of Realization challenge (1 comment in total)

I wonder if those who vote know when they are really suppose to vote a .5 or 1? I am aware that many may not like my photos and I am aware that I am not the best photographer. I am not complaining because I did not win or place...but, I do think that when I follow the rules of the challenge and continually receive .5's and 1's that those who vote that way should give the reason why they are scoring so low.

I have another photo in this challenge as well & it received 3 - .5's. As have several of my photos over this past year.

I also looked at other entrants who received .5's and 1's and for the life of me can't figure out why they were scored so low.

I think the voting system needs to be overhauled.

Would love some feedback.

Thanks, Leslee

Interesting. And, none of my photography friends, or anyone for that matter, knew I entered this contest. I liked this challenges because I like the impartial vote. Trying to be a both serious photography and a constant student it gave me good feedback on my work and I believe that is what the challeneges should be about. And, I would say the same even if I had not made it into the finalists. Thanks for putting this on.

In reply to:

Wildbegonia: Really, it does not encourages participation neither creativity to see the same submissions over and over in different challenges within days apart.

You are absolutely correct! I mistakenly put that photo in this challenge. I have withdrawn it. I meant to enter another one.

On The Island in the The third dimension (depth) and chat. challenge (17 comments in total)

This is an excellent example of showing depth in a photograph. I think what really does it for me in this shot is the far mountain range that is just a shadow. That really adds to the overall feeling of depth. Very nice.

On The waterfall in the The third dimension (depth) and chat. challenge (13 comments in total)

Hi. This shot reminds me of the foggy days in the PNW & I am wondering if this as taken driving on Hwy 101 that runs along the Pacific Coast. I love the taste of it. I do agree with Patty and Andreas on their points, but I am also wondering, if you popped the green of the trees more, if that would enhance the waterfall, and maybe not make the sky so evident. The sky is what it is: Foggy. A mystery!

On Milestones? in the The third dimension (depth) and chat. challenge (13 comments in total)

What an interesting subject. I am fascinated how the different stones represent different classed of people. I think your DOF is great. What draws me attention is the cracks in gound in the cement. I would love to see a bit more pop from them. Maybe increase your blacks just a bit to make it more contrastly. I think if you could crop the frist stone out altogether this would be a KILLER photo. A coule reasons for that..it is not quite in focus and I see that you focused on the second stone. Also, it seems ti be leaning a lot more than the other stones, so it draws my eyes, when I would like my eye to follow the line of stones to the very far wall. A great photo for this challenge showing depth!

On Mood [B&W] challenge (8 comments in total)

Hi Onlooker...

I must be doing something wrong that I am not aware of. I have my photos (vertical) set on the 'short edge' at 768...and that is what my metadata also tells me...but you keep DQing me for the wrong size? Maybe you can explain to me how I am suppose to be entering these figures when I export? Thanks for your help.
