On City Tower (Torun, Poland) in the Tamron Prize Challenge: Travel and Nature challenge (247 comments in total)
In reply to:

IcyVeins: this is so obviously rigged, it's a great photo, but there's no way this person legitimately got 51 5 star votes and no more than 6 votes for any other level. He/she probably annoyed a bunch of friends into signing up for free accounts and rigging the voting. There was an average of 25 votes per person and this image got 80 votes, that doesn't happen by accident. Sorry but this should be DQ'ed.

Indeed! The 5th photo sure looks better than the first 4 and seems to have a legit score.

They should drop the scores from:
- people who registered only a few days ago;
- people that only voted for 1 photo;
- people with extremely unbalanced votes;

They can also read our comments and check which photos don't deserve a certain classification by simply analyzing the awkward vote distribution. It is very simple to see in the first 4 photos where are the vote trend if the 5 stars vote is removed.

On Lone tree, Sunset in the Tamron Prize Challenge: Travel and Nature challenge (45 comments in total)

It seems the first legit winner after seeing the first 5 and it is really much better than the previous 4!

On Photograph emotions: "Your Deepest Regret" challenge (5 comments in total)

Indeed, Rastoff.
Also interesting to observe that 1 day has passed and more than a half of the total votes are still mine. If all of those who submitted photos would vote all entries, the challenge would also meet greater meaning.
