Review Bombing


Recommended Posts

I know you shouldn't really post your own photos in this thread, but it has happened twice consecutively that my (I think) 5 star photos were bombed to a four. If you guys could tell me if I'm missing something that obviously makes these a 4 or if the "rate bombing issue" has affected my pictures.

Personally, the first photo is a solid five star photo IMO. 
 

The second is a borderline photo, a four that is very close to a five. Personally, the lighting is too harsh as the eye is somewhat in a shadow and isn’t at a relatively pleasing lighting angle.

May be me, but are these three star quality?

Mourning dove photo is a two star. I really thought that the Wilson's plover and one of the least sandpiper photos were actually kind of good. What are your thoughts. 

I’d give the dove a two. 
 

All the plovers/sandpipers and gulls I’d give fours. 
 

The tern is a two.

I don't usually do this, but these photos (they are mine) have always bugged me. I can see how a few of them are solid fours, but at least two of them feel like no doubt fives, IMHO. In fact, a few of the pics might actually be some of the best shorebird photos I have ever taken. It feels to me like they were bombed down to a four, but with 38 ratings on one of the pics, maybe I'm just trippin'. Thoughts?

I don’t see why they’re not fives…
