The sell the rights is not a guaranteed $25 if approved. They still have the choice to escalate instead... Considering my average assignment image has earned me $87 I'm glad they didn't go for the $25 early on :)

Your composition skill is very high. Another example that you don't need a dslr to be a good photographer. My congratulations!

Thank you, I appreciate it :) You really don't need a DSLR to be a good photographer. If you can shoot well with a DSLR you can do it well (very subjective, I know) with a smartphone or a disposable camera.

When I went to Amsterdam and Rotterdam this spring I tried to do some stock photography with my DSLR but I didn't quite like the results, so I ditched the DSLR and wandered the cities with my iPhone only. It gives you a whole new perspective, you feel playful, creative, curious. It's like you're starting over with photography for the first time again. If one can keep these feelings alive after so many years, than photography is not just a hobby or a passion, but a way of exploring both yourself and the world.

Yes, for street photography, a smart phone is more handy.

I just noticed this on the voting page -

"For accurate results, please vote for all images uploaded using the full range scale from 1 to 5"

Does that mean we are supposed to give a rating to every image or just give a number to our favorites? I've never given a number to every image in the past, have I been voting incorrectly?

guess they are saying don't just vote for your favorite, vote for ones that you would give a 1, 2, 3 and 4 for also. I guess it means that in an assignment where there is many pictures a picture with only one vote of say 4 would probably win because its average vote would be 4, whereas if we all vote on as many as we can then this kind of thing can not happen. my thoughts any hows :)

So, if this is true, voting would be skewed unless every voter gave a number to every image? Math/statistics are not my forte so I'm still confused. One of the headings on the page says "Vote for your Favorites" so that is what I have done in the past, giving my favorites a 5 (and a few second favorites a 4) and not giving the other images a number. Am I the only one mixed up?

I guess we can all do it as we please, there really is not a wright or wrong way. I choose to vote on all images. Whether you vote on 1, all or none is ok, it can not cause an issue with the overall results in a bad way. It's a simple equation of adding up all the votes scores and dividing it by the number of votes per image, I'm pretty sure this will be done automatically rather than and admin sitting there with a calculator.

Incidentally I have just wrote a small blog on a possible finding I have had with this assignment on the successes it can bring :)

ok, good to know. This assignment was fun, the first time I entered. There are a lot of images to vote on and it's hard to pick my favorites. I've already got some downloads on mine which was surprising as it happened very fast. I will have to pull out my mobile phone more often!

Personally, I think they need to switch to the 'stock rank' style of voting. Give me pairs of random images and I vote which one I like better. Would get rid of a lot of factors, like not getting votes on all images, contributor name, etc...

Yeah, I think that some sort of anonymous voting would be better. I'm not saying that people vote for their pals but choosing the images themselves and giving them a number without any info would be a good idea. I often pick the best from a group of images from the same contributor since I figure that they can't win first, second and third, but maybe I'm wrong. If they were the best 3 I see no reason why they couldn't win all the prizes and if the images were presented with no info they might be judged on visual impact rather than any other (subconcious) factors. The contest has grown since it began so maybe it's time to rethink how it is presented and voted upon.

The voting system is not good, this is not the first time I say this. Is like Eurovision :)
I am waiting for a "editors vote" for first place and "users vote" for place 2 and 3 - but not those user with photos in assignment or from referrals/favs.
I know this involve some programing work from web designers...
