Default Re: Points and competition...

The point system isn't a real way to judge your work. Some people give points for strange reasons or even no reason at all ("Just want to make people feel good.")

I've seen 'nothing special' pictures receive very high point ratings and (IMO) absolutely wonderful, unique, well-crafted images receive almost no points. Lots of times scores are more about where the picture was taken or who took the picture than about the quality of the work. (I turned off the point system long ago.)

Best you pay attention to carefully written Critiques, both those given to your images and to those of others. There are some very helpful and knowledgeable people who post here and take time to write Critiques that are full of useful information and to post Workshops that illustrate their ideas.
