Hi all

I am new to this website and have uploaded a couple of shots. These have started receiving comments, which is good (so far) but also votes.

Votes for what? I understand that there are awards on here but what is everyone voting for?

Sorry if my question makes me sound like a dumb a$$.......

Votes are just a way of saying they like the image.
Sometimes you cant think of anything constructive to say apart from that.

The votes were introduced to vote for quality of photo. So if it's a really good photo members would vote and once it reached 30 votes it gets a Reader Choice Award, but votes are given for all different reasons, so the system has never really worked as we'd intended but it can be a reasonable gauge.
