RumpelHund: The distribution of votes is highly unlikely from a statistical point of view, especially regarding the standard to good quality of the shot.
I don't feel like this is a quality-based vote result, frankly speaking.
Good shot anyway, congratulations!
The vote distribution is very likely when you post to facebook. It's the only way to get 1st and 2nd place in one challenge with both entries showing more extra 5's like these do.
barb_s: Nice shot but won with facebook friend votes.
when 5 people vote and the only vote they cast is on this one photo, it tends to be "facebook friends". When someone else in this forum posts a picture of this very photo displaying it in a facebook profile , it clearly indicates social media working.
wow - amazing entries - I love the creativity. Great stuff and lot's of fun to vote on this challenge.
hi , love it - was this in Yellowstone by any chance?
This was one of my favorites, but what is it?
Another I really like right here. Very interesting result!
I didn't come close in trying to do a shot for this challenge. Bravo! This is great!
This was a lot of fun to vote on. Great idea!!!
Congratulations, this is a standout, and in my book the best photo in this challenge.
Nice shot but won with facebook friend votes.
Congratulations on coming in second to facebook. You have a great photo here. I love it full size.
you got a 5 from me. My favorite!!!!
This is my very favorite of all. It just looks like an advertisement. Beautiful picture and a beautiful car too!!!
happy snapper uk: Im game as I dont have a photo that fits
BartyLobethal: Don't know how many judges you want or have Barb, but I would be happy to be part of this as a judge.
You are also in my list now. Thank you.
I have the panel of judges all set. Once the challenge is active, I'll send out some instruction to the judges explaining how we will tally up the ratings.
I also saw stuff like this on an extrnal website. I find water to be a real challenge, but to get water hitting water is even more so. I'd be really proud of this capture. Wow!!!! Nicely done! Congratulations!
RuthC: Would there be 25 entrants in these challenges who have won 25 times? I know some who have probably won 10 times, but 25?? Seems a bit too selective, IMO.
Yes, that's the plan.
Ruth, I reworded it, because I'm trying to come up with a new twist to the voting issues. Please read it again and tell me if this makes sense now. THanks!
