Hi All,

I can tell you one thing and that is I voted only once! so if the mod wants too check my votes I am happy for him to confirm this, but some forum members do vote for more than one picture specially when they are of such a high standard!

its not that we don't trust you... we just want to know what the heck happened since every other contest has been pretty much down to the wire. No offense (since I personally voted for yours among others) but its just strange that among all the good photos on here, yours is the only one consistently receiving votes and in a very rapid fashion... I don't think Nikki even hit 20 votes last contest and she won.

your pic is good (like I said I voted for it), but I just don't think it's good enough against all the other ones to just dismiss the fact that you already own over 50% of the votes in a contest with more than 10 entries and still have 4 more full days of voting left.

just my $.02... anyone else?

No offense to anyone on here but I feel like watrob's picture is indeed the best one. Some of the others are either too simple or urban in their own way. The topic "urban" is a little bit broad because you can post pretty much anything you see in your every day life. In this case it just turns out that Watrob's picture of Brisbane's city line is the best so it's not surprising that he's winning by a landslide.

IMO no one should be offended if their picture doesn't get as many votes. I get that everyone wants to win but it's like you're expecting to win. Just because the other contests have been close doesn't mean this one will be too. Honestly a lot of pictures in the other contests were very good but that's not the case in this one.

Oh and who cares if "MAYBE" he created accounts to vote for himself?!?! If he wants to win that badly then let him win it.

I see what you are saying and yes it is a very good pic but to win by such a large margin in such a small time is just very odd and raises some questions, which I think is totally fair in this case. I honestly think if it were true that he was making accounts to vote (or even just recruiting votes by PMing his friends) then thats pretty bogus and not really in the spirit of the contests. We're all here to have fun and take good and challenging pictures each time so 'if' that was the case and we found out, he'd probably have to sit out a few until he got the picture (sorry for the photo pun).

Either way I think we SHOULD in fact make the rest of the polls from here on out public just to dismiss any thoughts of cheating... its not fair to anyone, especially watrob if he didn't do anything wrong.

Damn, there some bitch slappen going on here! I am lucky there is not a prize for winning otherwise someone may have taken a contract out on me!

Now, has everyone calmed down!

So as I understand it the poll winner gets to pick the next photo category, is that correct?

I voted for his picture, and I think that was the only one I voted for. I'm not really worried about it. It's solid.

Just buildings/warehouses/homes/factories etc. I think I might take a drive over the weekend and see what I can find to take a photo of!

One could consider that to be derelict if it was rusted down to it's shell (truck, car, tractor etc) but not if it crashed and caught fire just a few months back!

So what have we got so far for derelict, all types of buildings, cars, trucks, farm equipment, etc

Hey Nikki, do want to set up this up for the next photo comp! and some extended time so we can go out and have a look around and see whats available to shoot a photo of!
