I have a reply which seems honest enough on why the group voted 5 stars. It does explain that it was not someone with a few extra accounts (...)

It was... It was a liar and a cheater with at least one extra account. A cheater "having fun" when sabotaging challenges with 5 and 4.5 stars votes.

This picture taken by Lachein :https://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=1048148

..... was taken with exactly the same camera and lens with exactly the same body serial number and exactly the same lens serial number - as the "winner" of this challenge :

....It's difficult to find a picture entered by RJD13 without 5* and 4.5* votes . Some examples :

... or garbage like this with 5 or 6 x 5 stars votes :

Thank you tasad for your diligent investigative work at dismantling cheaters. It restores some validity to the challenges and its participants.

And since the image above in question:

https://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=1124729&View=Results&Rows=25

had won a 1st position in the challenge ‘Like a Girl’ , should not the host verify its validity, and given its irregular voting pattern?
