Congratulations to the winners!
The photo I entered received a 2.5 which isn't bad. I scrolled through a lot of the photos and again, there are shots that were quite good that received fairly poor ratings.
My shot that received a 2.5 has a rating of 3.18 in my FS portfolio. Not a large discrepancy but enough to bolster the opinions of many here that there are members that give low ratings in an effort to boost their chances of winning. I don't know what can be done since it's not a scientific sort of poll.
My Idea and actual problem with the way pictures are rated is that there ist next to no feedback. So maybe there should be a system that forces you to comment, once for every picture you commit and once for every 10 votes or so. You cant comment "wow nice picture" and give 1 Star. I dont really care about the stars tbh but I want to improve, so if some one thinks a picture is a 1 Star just tell them why.
