Piotr Skrzypiec had two fantastic entries- the top-rated and fifth-highest rated images! Lee was wondering if the second one was some kind of graphic art work. Maybe Piotr did something with the fog, but the church building is the same structure in both images. He took advantage of a great location to create two images that look quite different from each other, but are both excellent.

I don’t want to come across as bitter, and I certainly don’t want to tell you guys how to run your own contest. That being said, I can’t help but feel that choosing two clearly 4/5 star photos (likely of the same subject) from one photographer when you have a pool of over 400 people, many of whom have never been selected, is not the best way to encourage people to participate in the contests.

Regardless, thanks for taking time out of your day for these videos.

LOL, gregd photography here!!

I don't know why but I keep entering very old images into the comp.

I did take the shot of the model in my studio and the rest was stock. These days I would have the same argument, is it photography or not?

As always guys, thanks for taking the time to critique images.

Thank you for selecting my pic. Ok now I got a 1 star. Next time I'll get a 2 ;) LOL. But yeah even with what you said it gave me some tips so thank you :) I'm starting here:)

Thank you so much for including me! It's a macro shot of the frost pattern on my bathroom window, btw. That's where the sparkle came from. :-)
