I would have hated to have to judge this contest, to hard....

6/24/2009 5:45 PM
CONGRATS MINX!!!!! Excellent contest. Nice to know they really are watching!!

6/18/2009 8:44 PM
Congrats Minx!

Thank you Sheri and Linda, I was very suprised to win, I felt like there were several other pics that deserved to win. Lots of beautiful entries!

What the hell? Sunset at Home was spetacular, and better on so many levels than Tranquility. Bobbysurf, you were robbed by the judges man, I was shocked to find out you didn't win:(

Congrats Minxrocks Great photo

6/18/2009 4:10 PM
CONGRATULATIONS minxrocks! How COOL is it you won such a great prize!! Whooooo! Whoooooo!!

Oh and KarDanCreations I totally agree. 100%. There are also alot of good photographers that know when the composition of a shot is all out of wack and shot with no disipline, like a quick snapshot. So judges, the eyes are on you. :)

We should be voting for the photography not how digitally enhanced you can make it!! Vote for me, all natural no computer effects!!

6/17/2009 7:37 PM
The unfortunate part about this contest, is that there are so many entries that many wonderful photos are getting lost in the crowd! It's been a fantastic effort from everyone and I've voted for lots of you!

6/17/2009 7:27 PM
votes an image has, it is ultimately up to the Taltopia Judges to make the final call! There is no way they would let a shabby image win. Rest assured, they are watching.

6/17/2009 7:26 PM
then, please contact them with your suggestion! As far as the Taltopia run contests, like this one, no matter how many

6/17/2009 7:25 PM
Taltopia is constatntly re-working the voting system to try and get away from the "popularity" of "favoritism" votes! If you have a suggestion for helping make the voting system more fair

6/17/2009 5:00 PM
For those who do no like the either/or voting, you are able to scroll through and select a photo for voting. It will still pose it against another photo, but you will be able to vote on the particular photo you like.

i do think there should be a better choice system some shots u c several times and others u c only once and the pic u pick from should b closer in vote ive seem up 2 a 300 vote diff. between the choices

6/17/2009 6:45 AM
yes joe great art here and the rest is all that politic crap that makes the world slow down.all pic r great even the rose in the wrong contest lol happy voting and keep expressing ur world

6/16/2009 5:12 PM
We are new here as well, and I've discovered almost every photosite has similar problems of favoritism or 'ballot stuffing' by friends (& family) no matter the quality of image. The only way around this is independent (expert) judging.

6/16/2009 2:40 PM
Hey Joe, nicely expressed sentiment.

6/16/2009 2:00 PM
Personally, I think that it shouldn't be about how many friends you can get to vote for you, it should be about the art....is there another artist here?, or is this just a popularity contest....I'm new, and would like to know.....

6/15/2009 9:56 PM
like ruth west and mshollywood great shots but late to the party

6/15/2009 1:29 PM
I agree with you Aubrey W...

6/15/2009 10:11 AM
Good thought, tcomer...perhaps a three day deadline, like when there is only three days left of the contest the entry process will be closed so that voters can have their time to really rack in the votes!

6/15/2009 9:32 AM
artist should always have an open mind or why bother right

6/15/2009 9:30 AM
hey i noticed i got a reply i think the underdogs r the best work but so overlooked and yes a skip is a good idea and also they may have arrived late to the party so they need to be caught up i think a deadline might help 2

6/15/2009 9:08 AM
my photo has no computer enhancements!!!!! Doesnt need em :)

6/14/2009 11:08 PM
I've stopped voting in the contest as well. I'm getting a sore hand from all the clicking, just to get to the photo I want to vote for. It gets old real fast, so you just give up, leaving the artist with out the votes they deserved!

6/14/2009 6:59 PM
And goto the "conract us" link at the bottom left of this page and tell Taltopia how you feel. That is the best way to get things done.

6/14/2009 6:58 PM
It goes both ways...and finally, if you have a problem that needs attention with the voting process, you should do as Allen suggested..

6/14/2009 6:58 PM
And if you truly feel your picture is better than the one pitted against it, I say you should vote for it. I have voted against myself hundreds of times, simply because I liked the other image better than my own.

6/14/2009 6:57 PM
perkyme, the only reason you voted over 100 times is there are over 100 entries in this contest! Ya gotta just hang in there and vote.
