I believe this is a legit question but is Art Photo MKD's photo's really so much better and wins so much because he's just awesome and puts up 14 of the same photo's everyday?

example today he put up at least 12 within 5 min at least one of his photo's is 100 pts higher than any other photo in children. Now 9 hrs later he is still about 100 pts higher. And these are the same photo's or very similar.

Then I check his duels which I can only see the last 3 but he goes up against the same photo 3 times in a row. I have the screenshot.



What is the reason is allowed to do this everyday? I thought the was a rule agianst similiar photo's?

it would appear that there are rules for some and rules for others, or maybe his nose is just browner than yours or mine.

I think he's definitely more persistent than most people. He deletes 9.5 out of every 10 images he posts. You can see that all of his photos don't do well by looking at the images he submitted yesterday: http://grab.by/raO2 But if they don't do well he deletes them or resubmits them.

That in and of itself is not against the rules on Pixoto. As long as there are not two very similar images in the profile at any given time. I think it is repetitive and not that interesting but I have not come up with a particularly great solution to it. Open to suggestions...

FYI - here is the full imageduel history for that image.

In looking at this - I would say yes - this image is better. To my eye the subject of his image, with the somewhat mysterious look, is a more attractive subject than most of the images she has dueled against. I can easily see why people would have chosen it.

Hope this helps...

Thanks Jason, i know i'm not your favorite tog too, but for this compliment thanks. For what i can see it is like "" Why Phil Jackson has 70.4% with same strategy ". Ok 90% of my images is a part of more complex Doctorate disertation, in short one lens, one body, one subject and Demographic Influence on perception ....etc. As an example here is a coment of member 1000 miles away abaut some of my photos :
"Prasanta Das commented on your image Untitled.

"You are a gifted artist. I really love your child portraits in Black and white. The character shines out in Black and white in a way color can never do. And what shots children give to your lens! They must be loving you and trusting you as much as you love them. The chemistry makes such portraits possible.. "

And dear Jason Butts maybe here is some answers to your question.
And once again Thanks JASON

ArtPhoto Mkd I not saying your photo's aren't good. I just seems that some photogs on here really need to go out and challenge themselves. It's only my opinion but I think quiet a few are only in it to rake up points and so they see a image works and just continue doing that image or very similar. many of these have photogs of the year awards on here.

I think maybe a award for most diverse or all around photogs of the year would be a good idea. Then maybe there would start to be some more variety and variety is always good.

Thanks for answer Jason Butts, i know that i'm good, private session with me is over 1000 pounds, but i 'm not get happy when one of my photos is on the WALL. All of my photos are not posed and not retouched in Photoshop, only in Camera Raw. But i agree with you that some of photos from other photographers is one same pose and look, ( exeption is the Artist Gunsforever ) and sometimes some not that good photos have great score in points BUT THAT is the name of THE GAME. Have a happy shooting. Let the happiest win. With all of my respect. NG

You really should put some more of these shots on pixoto to be judged. you wouldn't have people questioning why so many of the little girl shots. I people can tell what you can do.

hahahaha. way to go Artphoto. i've been reading some forum in here. some are ok, polite and respectful. but most are quite the opposite. when they request they have very demanding sound. i don't know maybe it's just me. but i just noticed in here they kinda lost the three very useful words (thanks,sorry, and please). For me as long as it's within the rules there's nothing wrong with that. let others do what they wanna do, and just mind our own business. just sayin'

Its more that the rules are vague or they don't enforce the rules is what I think the problem is. They really should just trow out the similiar rule since there really is no consensus by the admin of what a similiar photo is.

Just wondering "ArtPhoto Mkd" ... what is your real name, why a photo group name? Is this multi account or one person only? Just wondering (Macedonia, London, male / female, etc ... it's all over the place) ... ;)

I think perhaps he (or we) are just trying to verify the origin of the photos in this thread that you claimed as your work. Copyright is very important to photographers, protecting not only our own, but the ownership of others as well. The photos above were taken by a Macedonian photographer named Tomislav Georgiev. Your profile here says your name is Nik and you're from England. We're not NSA, but this is a relatively simple question directly related to the photos we see. Perhaps we misunderstand in some way how the names are different?

You are very funny with your hiding ... simple question / should give simple answer ... according that "Tomislav Georgiev" is also a reporter (with public profile), why so much hiding true identity ...

Why would you pretend to be a female from England when you are a male from Macedonia or vice versa?
