Voting for it whether or not there is a watermark.

I'm just putting it out there , full disclosure....there are way too many images that have water marks that are really really good. Lots of times they are way better than the opposing shot. I am no longer going to skip them as I don't think it is fair and skipping shots is probably messing up all our points. So...just saying is all....not skipping em anymore.

Just an update. I have spent an hour voting for what I want regardless of watermarks. I am much happier now.

So Julie , you are rewarding the rule breakers. This is why it continues. If you don't want to skip than vote for the one who follows the rules.

The problem with voting for the one that doesn't break the rules as stated above is that there are some pretty trying scenerios where the oposing photo doesn't come close to deserving the vote. If I can justify it, I do that, but too often the other photo is just not good enough. Whether it is in the wrong category or just say a snapshot vs a quality photo. I've tried it both ways and this is how I want to handle it. Also, I am 100% sure that my votes are not a contributing factor to this issue. And if you say well if I do it then lots of people do it....well...maybe they feel the same way.

If everyone says that they feel they are not a contributing factor.......guess what?
They are. Take a moment to write down the names and submit to: report@pixoto.com

according to the rules a shot with a watermark will not be awarded first place, hopefully that extends to all shots in the lower catergories, so voting for them won't affect them much, but might impact on the shot it was duelled against.
