Which has to be the best explanation yet of why Carabosse rarely gets 30 votes Tongue

Yes.......... only 90% of the time. Sad

But Cheryl is much loved.............. and gets much higher than that, i.e. much nearer 100%. Only explanation I can think of! devilish-dark.jpg

Oh dear, the voting system....when I fist joined I made two conclusions in error....the fewer votes, a really bad photo, the more votes, a really good photo. I then went through a period of vote chasing....meaning uploading the kind of images that I thought would get votes...sometimes it would work...but it was an illusion.

If you look carefully at the website, you'll see some pretty dire photgraphs gettting a lot of votes, and on further study, you'll notice that the person's who placed the dire photograph is a very active voter...so tit for tat going on.

I've also been amazed that some really top class photography often recieves little to no votes.

The voting system is not, im my view an indication of what is a good photograph. There are some really first class photographs that do deservedly get a lot of votes, a hundred or more, and well done to them..it's deserved.

Nowadays I upload what I like and what appeals to me, after all, I am sharing my vision of the world as I see it through my lens and noone else's.

Recently I uplodaded a photo called 'Retro', it was a portrait. I processed the picture to make it look very 1960's....it got one vote along with a comment of ' a little over saturated'...well, it was supposed to be a 1960's retro look, and all photos then were oversaturated..so, it goes to show, it's just an opinion.

I vote for what I like, not for who I like.

I've always steered away from offering critique, it seems senseless to me, so I comment on what I like about a picture or not at all, unless the person has specifically asked for critique, and then again, there are many photographers on this website who have far more experience and talent than me so I leave it to them.

If it's fab I'll say so, if it's drab, I'll keep quiet.

The challenge section is also an issue. Often photgraphs are uploaded to challenges that do not follow the guidelines and end up winnig the challenge...go figure...perhaps we have all forgotten to read.
