I have a question. I have apic right now that is in the nymber 5 spot in black and white. The picture in the number 1 spot my picture has beaten twice in image duels the same for the pic in the number 3 spot. Yeah I know quit whining! LOL Both of those pics have a lot more image duels than mine. My question is does going head to head with a picture and beating it make a difference?

It does make a difference: when you win images that have a higher rating than yours your score will rise disproportionately (and theirs will fall).  After 60 or so duels the number of duels has very little impact on the overall score.  I hope this helps.

I dont see how an image that beats another image in two image duel and has the same ratio of wins to losses can still be behind the image it beat in the duels... Both the images had 18 more wins than losses. It is what it is but please explain it,
