mike schm: Dear Host,
Please, in the future, set a limit on the number of entries allowed. 165 photos is WAY too hard to evaluate and vote fairly on. There are some excellent pictures submitted in this challenge and it's a great topic for a challenge. However, as I started out trying to review and vote on each entry, I was overwhelmed. I'm sorry to all of the participants, and I wish you all good and fair results.

Mike

There are to many entries in this challenge. I vote often, but not this time.
I would think 60 -70 entries per challenge is enough.

LeeBic: Way to many entries in this challenge

As I said in a comment now deleted, 179 entries is ridiculous.

Barb I love this series. It makes voting a lot of fun.

197 entries is ridiculous which discourages reasonable and effective voting. I gave all entries a 5 and encourage everyone to vote the same.

Saleen1999: Hi Cary,

This is an awesome HDR. It looks so natural and not extreme. If you don't mind explaining your process, I would greatly appreciate the tips like for example did you start off with several different exposures and if what software? Always looking to learn.

Thank you and much appreciate it.

Multiple exposures 3 - 5 always work better, tripod highly recommended. Photomatrix is very good, but many like Nik's HDR Efex Pro.

In reply to:

Midwest: Two people actually gave this photo ONE HALF STAR? And three others gave it just one star? This is why I gave up these 'challenges', the voting is a joke and too many entrants sandbag the competition. They should call it the "DPReview Pearls Before Swine Photo Challenges".

Gorgeous photo - no mature adult could give this 1/2 or 1 star. I'm glad you won despite these juvenile voters.

This photo, as most of the other entries, does not meet the theme of this challenge. Reading comprehension appears to be a weak point of entrants and voters alike.

It is some very good Photoshop work.

Excellent collection of photos. Renews my belief that there are people who know how to photograph flowing water.

Leandros S: I'm going to boycoot this one as my personal favourites aren't here, and it feels a bit stupid being only allowed to vote for what the DPR team have deigned permissible. Condescending, too.

What favourities? You have never voted in any Challenge! You certainly are not a contributing member to the challenge community of DPR.

I find it interesting that photo's of planet earth contain almost no humans.

pleytime: I hesitate to enter an image because I fear that entries might be made into actual puzzles and sold. If so, do entrants receive any compensation?

I am simply interested in your ratio. For example 100 votes per entry. That would mean the two people above would have to vote 453,100 times before they could enter a challenge of yours. If you do not have a definate ratio you run the risk of inequitable application of your "rule".

And just what constuttes a "very low voting score relative to their entries"?
