Hello Paul, please check how Pixoto works here: http://www.pixoto.com/about

On the page it is also described about Imagescore:

"What is an ImageScore?

ImageScore is generated from our proprietary algorithms and is meant to summarize how well the image has done against other images in its category and subcategory. Once an image has competed in sufficient duels, a higher score will naturally mean a higher perceived quality. ImageScore is recalculated at the end of every ImageDuel. Factors that determine how much ImageScore changes include the number of ImageDuels completed and the relative strength of the opponent.

Our goal is not to find the relative position of all images but instead to find the relative position of the BEST images. It is not important to us whether an image rates 50 or 51 out of 100. We really only want to put that image in the right area of the Leaderboard and will stop dueling ("pause") images that are not statistically likely to reach the top 10%. By contrast it is important that we understand whether an image ranks number 3 or 4 out of 100 and will use a disproportionate number of ImageDuels to determine this."

I hope this helps.
