But, I'm sure some people here have voted for/against people they like/dislike in the past. It's human nature. Fortunately, enough people vote to hopefully not skew the end results. I do believe remmib is well-deserving of the win (assuming he wins), since his photo is awesome and fits the theme perfectly.

That being said, the only way to get around this, is the organizer of the contest can receive submissions only via PM, and then anonymously post the submissions in the submission and voting threads. Once voting is complete, he/she can announce the winner of the contest. What do you guys think? I know some people have maxed out their PM quota... hehe.
That means no watermarks on images. Just sayin'.

it was a poorly expressed and incorrect sentiment brought about by a series of frustrations in my day. there's something not quite right, i feel, but i didn't say it correctly.

Well I "won" the last one not knowing anyone here.. The person that got the second most votes was Paul who in my opinion is one of the most talented photographers on here, and well known by most people.. I'm still getting familiar with names so im voting based on the pictures and I think remmib did a hella good job

Thank you. I really appreciate that. I'll work on a re-crop and see how it looks!

EDIT: How's this?

Not sure an 800px photo can go too far if stolen from our forum.

Thanks! The original was right out of the camera except for some saturation and contrast. I appreciate the feedback!

I think if we are doing a photo contest and people are taking a picture for the express purpose of the contest, then a watermark isn't necessary as was inteded for the public to begin with.

I however disagree with the thought that people are voting based on the person who submitted the photos. (at least i'd hope that people in here are mature enough, and the the immature ones stick to the general threads) I've gotten a good idea of who the regular submitters are and respect them and what they have to say as well as their opinions and believe they wouldn't stoop that low.

Mario K has some living up to that reputation to do :P (just kidding I had to tease someone in this post)
