If you read his tag line it says "I STEAL PEOPLES PHOTOS - my account is being deleted. Again..."
Maybe they are making an example out of him.

or the tog is just making fun of the site. I don't want to sound regionalistic/racist but he came from a country which I report the most. see this topic http://community.pixoto.com/pixoto/to...

I'm not an expert on programs that would show us that the original image which is refined but I know that the image to open the Notepad program in the header to see a lot of data (from which the camera take pictures when he emerged, etc.) and see if it is done with Photoshop, Photomatix or some other program. There are images here that are made ​​with professional appliances and are done in Photoshop to be the cell phone did. It is sad!

Jay firstable I dont think so, because following reason:

1.- first we are discussing this picture http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra..., non mobile camera can freezing waterfall, sorry for it.. I had try every time I saw the waterfall and took a lot picture also my friends, none one can freezing waters and can control high F (apperture), for DSLR camera need used manual mode, and using this features or setting ISO 100, f=22 or more, time less than 1/5, if have a lot light need using ND filters to get - stops

2.- second in this picture http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra..., have a lot post-proccesing, will give you a reason
2.1- the clouds are so colorful (orange)
2.2- ray of sunlight is too defined
2.3- can achieve good image of silhouette, but the image at a time can be noticed almost dark, but unlike this picture has very good distribution of light in general, besides the image is too sharp

...it would be nice if you could delete or recategorize his photos (not only these, there are more in his portfolio) as soon as possible. He has already won a lot of awards and will win awards today.

he now started to delete the EXIF and submitted 8 new photos in Instagram/Mobile category today.
I think when people cheat once in a certain category they should not be allowed to join this category anymore. Unfortunately I don't make the rules...

Those are a lot of awards that could have gone to someone else. What a shame. They also need to let him know he is uploading to the wrong category or he will just keep doing it..Amanda, can you help?

As I kep saying the mobile phone catergory causes so many issues, and I get tired of voting on instragram in the duels, it should just go altogether

I think the tog intentionally submitted them in instagram/mobile category. He's just one of the hundred who put their images in strange categories recently

I think what may be happening is the following.
I have whats called an eye-fi card in my camera. I can configure my eye-fi card to automatically send my photos wirelessly to my android or iphone or ipad. I have read that instagram automatically sends your photos to Pixoto. I don't think this is as much cheating as ignorance on the part of the members and the inability of Pixoto to come up with a way to get information to the members other than clicking on About/FAQ link. It has always frustrated me that when you click on help you go to the forums. I really think the flow of the site information is terrible and not intuitive at all. Since their are so many language differences there needs to be a better way to communicate important information to the members. A mailing list would help. A link bar across the top with direct links to the rules and guidlines, and a link that actually says Forums on it. It's hard to get help from people that are asking for help themselves. IMHO

instagram automatically sends your photos to Pixoto is true however
if the recent photos reported we're submitted using instagram the exif info should have been deleted - that's what instagram do.
but unfortunately the reported photos were submitted under "others," "iphone" and "android" sub categories
