The main one that raised my red flag is a person who voted only twice -- one was a 0.5 vote and one was a 5. IMO and looking at the voting so far, neither image deserved either vote.

Could be an honest vote.

If one doesn't want to spend the time and still add one's influence to the voting - that would be the approach: pick 1 favorite and 1 least favorite and give scores accordingly.
It seems less damaging than voting all images low except for one.

Not my approach - I only vote on complete challenges and avoid both extreme scores - but I don't interpret this particular pattern as a dishonest one.

There were a few other reasons for my concerns as well, but nothing I'm going to share because suspicion isn't enough to convict. I can tell you that the tentative results look a lot more realistic now that more people have voted after my post about it. As the previous poster mentioned, sadly there were quite a few entries that really don't grasp what film noir is. Having the obvious film noir shots doing poorly and some that aren't even noir beating them... well I suppose maybe the voters don't know either, but in any case more votes have definitely helped. Thanks to all who have helped!
