no I voted so I think we can further vote again in the poll.

it basically went like this

A,B & C

A,B & F

B,H & I

B had the most votes so it goes in, A had 2 votes so it goes in, then since H was highest on Caspita's list that wasn't already in, that made the last entry.

again, just trying it out to see what happens, nothing saying we have to do it forever or can't go back.

not knocking the new method, just sayin'.
And thats fine, it's your opinion to have. Personally I saw absolutely no focus to that image (no pun intended). To me, it looked like he just went and shot the park outside his place. looking at intent, subject, light/dark ratios... I didn't see anything that I liked (and hopefully everyone here is big enough to hear both praise and criticism about their work without taking it personal).

However, if you or someone else saw brilliance in it, thats fine... art is subjective. If/when you were running the contest I would take your opinions and taste into account and know that there was reason behind you selecting or not selecting certain images as your top choices. If others in your group of judges agreed/disagreed it would confirm something that was either good or not so good.

There will be reasons why x and y got left out for sure, and there were more than just the 3 images I nominated that I thought were very good, but I chose what I thought were the best in my opinion.
