32,000 votes! That's enough for 64 photographers to qualify!

Thanks!

The winner of the challenge received ten 1/2-star votes :(

On RR XX in the "X..." Like X challenge (9 comments in total)

I agree with Steve about the orientation. I also found the focus misplaced. Actually is presented vertically and shot at maybe f14, I believe it would have been a contender. The idea is excellent.

I gave it only one star, which in retrospect is probably a little low.

Keep shooting, you have talent.

On Warm Light on the Bells in the Dramatic Light: Warm Image challenge (7 comments in total)

There's nothing wrong with your entry Adam. The light could be a little warmer, but it does have some warm character - taken at 9:20am in September. Furthermore, I find the composition very pleasing - an excellent landscape. I gave it 3.5 stars - a pretty high vote coming from me.

My rankings in jezsik's challenges are all over the map - often in the lowest 1/2 - 1/3 :(

I thought my entry fit the theme, but I managed to snag a couple more 1/2-star votes than you did ;-)

Better luck in future challenges.

On The Easter Bunnies in the Easter Sunday challenge (5 comments in total)

I believe this is a browser problem. This was discussed a few months ago - can't find the thread. Safari (Macs) is the only browser to always render the images correctly. Explorer & Firefox sometimes fail - but not often.

histogram. Where did you get all those 5-star votes? Furthermore, your entry is the only one in the top 100 to acquire less than *four* 1/2-star votes. Maybe you could enlighten us.

On Following Friends in the Composition: Leading Lines challenge (1 comment in total)

this shot didn't finish higher. I liked it. I suppose your shadow and the extraneous tourists on the very far left didn't help, but the leading lines work perfectly.

Nice shot.

On Posing on the vanishing point in the Perspective: Vanishing Point challenge (2 comments in total)

jezsik wrote:
> I don't think this is a very good image, but I rather like it. I really like how the vanishing point is used. However, what is weird is that the small version of the shot is way over-saturated compared to the full image view. I suspect that drew down some of the votes. A pity.

I also liked this one. The color issue is your browser rendering. This came up a couple of months ago (can't find the thread). I believe that Safari is the only browser that handles all the resizing correctly.

Look at all the rest. There are at least five 1/2-star votes given to all but five entries. See:

On nirvana in the Mood challenge (2 comments in total)

I voted on your entry. I gave it 1.5 stars. IMO, it looks out of focus, the crop is maybe a little too tight and the size should be larger.

I looked at your other entries. You have done very well in the challenges. But, this entry doesn't measure up to your others IMO. That said, you did much better than I did - 234th :(

Best of luck in the future.

Well, if you'll check serhat's past entries, you'll see that, generally, he has a small cadre of a half dozen voters or so always awarding him 5-stars.

Sad :(

Well, you can't vote for yourself - unless you have multiple dpreview accounts.

I'm shocked that you found 17 five-star votes among my 132 challenge entries. If you'll kindly look at my last five finishes, you'll find exactly one 5-star vote ;-)

I simply chose four of your recent finishes and discovered a total of 21 five -star votes with almost no other votes close to those in the histograms. Just look at the histograms - it's ridiculous.
> ...or is it that just too few poeple cast a vote on a particular picture so if a couple of people give it the highest mark, it looks like the picture is spiked... i will give you the benefit of the doubt since statisticly with not that many votes being cast, you cannot derive the conclusions you have been doing...

I don't understand your point - I just don't understand what you are trying to convey.

> ... what slipped by your attention is the regular voting down of pictures,which also happens pictures of mine as well as others, shown as a sudden spike of 0.5 points being awarded that seem out of place... so... how would you explain that...

It didn't slip my mind. I simply don't like to see folks padding the voting - high or low.

> ...and the listed results of mine... well please don't leave out the ones i did not score well with... and if i participated with more then one pic in a challenge, do not just list the one that was appreciated highly, but also the ones that were not recieved that very well... just to keep the listed results from being tainted in order to support your claim...

I only looked through your recent entries. While a couple of your shots are pretty good IMO, some just didn't command the unusual number of 5-star votes.
> ... and did you guys vote my submission to the underwater challenge down just to bug me... or should i again give you the benefit of the doubt?

I did vote on that challenge, but didn't realize you had entered. I just looked. I gave your entry 1.5 stars. In a stretch, I would give it two stars, but it doesn't rank with the best of the challenge IMO. Admittedly, I don't know much about underwater photography.

> kind regards

Best of luck with your future challenge entries.
