Look at the "winner" and the runner up. Really, there cannot be more disgusting photos in terms of photographic quality, setting. The "winner" even has all this photoshop work, but can't even get the dog eyes in focus.

The challenge :https://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=1124366 ... didn't have any post-processing rules - so , all the photo manipulations were allowed...

But , looks like the image  is the "winner" , because this member :

https://www.dpreview.com/members/4309894794/comments ... and his "six friends" voted on the entry  7 x 5 stars votes ... This is his comment posted under the entry during the challenge's "voting phase"...

The second one is just worst than a 2003 phone stretched, with the wire fence as background.

Yeah... This is an example how  the  not too bad picture can be destroyed in p-p...

From this : https://web.500px.com/photo/1003610512/A-dog-at-the-park-by-Teri-Frenette/?ctx_page=1&from=user&user_id=16771039

... thru this :https://www.dpreview.com/galleries/9080158204/photos/3993884/

... to this : https://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=1124313

The third entry is the only non-fake one, a really great portrait and great expression, with good focusing, background and everything you could expect from a high position. Someone voted it half stars...had to made sure to bring it down.

I think the results are nothing short of embarassing.
