I just read on the feedback page that if you vote to not 'follow the crowd' that your vote may not count as much. Is that true and why? It seems to me that a vote should be a vote. I do not vote for any image that is over saturated and/or over sharpened even if the image is good. I will not reward an image where 'bad technique' is so apparent. The image should always take priority over the technique used. I realize that many of the images that rank high on the leader board are in fact over saturated and over sharpened. I also don't vote for an image that has received an award and been resubmitted. Where is the new work? I'm not happy to hear that my vote may not count as much if I don't vote to support images that fall into the 'crowd category'. I'm a master darkroom printer and I'm now working on becoming a master digital printer so these issues are very important to me. I really like this site and I do appreciate all of the work that you guys do. Thanks, Jo Brenzo

I don't know where the post is about "following the crowd" but I would like to read that so if you could give the link, I would appreciate it. I understand what you are saying and agree that every vote should count. I also agree with you about images that have won and been resubmitted. There is no rule against it but to me it goes against the unspoken rules of fair play. I suppose since that is the case we all have to vote in a way that we feel is best. I am sure as this site grows the rules will change as will the submissions.
