I noticed going through the photos of the week that since people only vote for the photos they really like and everyone seems to like one photo or another, most all photos in the competition had a rating of 8-9.50. No one ever rated any other ones. This is my attempt and varying the scores a bit by rating all the ones I come upon. Please excuse my lack of comments on some photos
Don't see many shots with expression like this
Thanks everybody. Mike--I know that I seldom rate photos very low simply because I'm such a novice I don't think I'm qualified. Unless I see a flaw that's obvious to me I keep quiet--and usually my comments are about composition. I see lots of glorious photos here, but my favorite subjects are people and nature, so I look for those subjects.
