Thank you, Resa!

I believe Marie (Tahoe) and Nikki (IvyRose) did, as well.

It's exciting and hair-rasing all at once!

Thanks Resa, I agree Suzanne, exciting and nerve racking when you're up against so much talent. I envy those that can create and recolour at this time. As an iMac user none of the programs to do these things work for me sadly.
I have taken part in the every year since it began and love it so much. I think it would be such an honour to win it.

LOL, Lorry what's even funnier is that I'm a teacher and occasionally the pupils will call me sir instead of miss. :girlie5: I always laugh with them and joke saying that since the operation I'm now a Miss. Sometimes I have to explain that it's a joke before they start getting rude and ensure them that have always been female. laughloud

Good luck to our members who have entered the DOTY for 2017. I know you will fare well,since you both had great entries in last years DOTY.
I wanted to enter as well, but since we were away on holiday, I would not have been able to compete in the first round. So I will patiently wait for next years, though i though to also "take part" but to show my attempts here in my album.

This grey text thing is happening to me now, shouldn't have commented in there other thread that it wasn't LOL. Anyway have been changing my font colour so others can read it not sure if that's working for you all alright.

Anita, you can always do JFF entries at the pearl it's a shame you missed the first round your pictures are always beautiful I'm sure you would have done really well in it. This year looks to be a lot more challenging than last year, the worst thing is never really knowing what he judges are looking for. I know they do state what you get the points for but each judge will have a different idea about the entry. Last year for example I had entries where one judge would give high marks and really praise certain aspects that another judge would consider didn't meet the theme and mark lower. The worst thing of course is interpretation and in my case on one entry I made the room too big and didn't stick to the specifications on the floor plan. I just hope to stay in at least until round 6 that's my goal although last year I made it to the penultimate round but I don't expect to this year.

That the point is a little odd, but I used all the things that they counted up so I never got full marks from all judges, so how do you get full points?
Since I also received comments from that I used a stove in the first round but I know many who have stoves in the hall.
I used a little color in the kitchen and did not use enough of the floor in the living room, so it probably depends entirely on the judge.
I do not think I can be as long this time, probably because I had hoped that there would be anything other than an ordinary house, but movies ... it can be a little trickier.
I went out after Round 5 last time, so I'm happy as long as I will be there for I know that I still will not win if everyone else does not violate the competition.

I'm waiting for feedback on my round 1, I forgot to add trees but you can see them in the scenery outside. Am not at all happy with Round 2 it's awful I hate horror films and have never seen or wanted to see this one. May not even make ti to round three this year. computersmi

Oh my! Movies..... than it may a good thing that I was not able to enter. I am not that keen on watching movies, and not at all fond of horrors either.
But, I still have faith in the three of you, I know you will do well.

Ohhh Nikki 'Bates Motel'......maybe you need to look at it not as a movie, but that you have to create a run down Motel. You did so well last year it would be a shame if you left early. Not sure I am enjoying the theme of DOTY this year, although those first round entries were amazing.
Good Luck ladies....I think you are all winners rock

And Mr Nikki giggle I LOVE scarey movies!

I get the judges' differences in scoring, Nikki - I saw that with my first round scores.

Whelp - this is the point, though, isn't it? To grow and learn?

That's my plan and I'm sticking to it.

It is awesome having both you and Marie in this contest, Nikki...

...It warms my heart to know I have friends going through this with me :D

~~~~~~~~~~~~
I spent several hours yesterday downloading stuff for this round. I don't generally do this type of build, either, lol :D

Suzanne: Have you gotten your point? I got this answer
  This year we are doing away with positive / negative comments from the four judges. but if
there is ever anything specific That you would like to know, just ask.
I do not understand anything when it said that it was just to send a PM if you want to know.

Marie, last year we had positive and negative comments from the judges about our entries. I'm guessing that as it's such a time consuming task they decided not to that this year. I got my results.
Resa, you'll just have to wait and see lol

Betsy passed on my scores, Marie - I had to interpret their judging based on those.

For Round 2, Betsy posted about picture taking (wonky was used) and as I scored low with three judges on my pictures - well, I had the one close-up of the hanging bed and figured that might be why they scored me lower in that category.

I don't know...

...I'm just going to avoid looking at any entries (like I usually do) for this round and focus on the Psycho/Bates Motel aura <3

I've got my points now and I will be pleased with them and hope that they make for a ruond to, as I understood it would be some prodding for some poor entrys in the round first
I was anyway 23 points at most from a judge and I'm delighted for that I failed to get last year.
I had wished that they had with comments this year also because they helped me to improve myself.
This round I think is very funny and bloody it will probably be. scared
