  • The most liked picture has really nothing outstanding in it. I would check if the vote has not been hacked.

    The other ones are great.

    Really nice stuff! The “My Front Yard” one must have flown under my radar because I don’t remember it, but a very nice composition. Congratulations to the well-deserving winners!

    Seriously? These are the winners? You should review your selection criteria … And I do not say that because I was not taken again, I think to be objective, there was much better than that!

    Really? the Baku picture looks like it was taken on a stepladder, he’s admitted elsewhere that it was a Cannon 5D camera which is fine, but unlikely on a drone [1.5kg weight with lense, and crap photo for a £1k camera}…and 1.2k likes? that would have cost $10 to buy…I love this site, but a bit of QC on competitions to keep it real. Stop the [easily forged] popularity contest- someone, certainly not me, has been robbed of a well earned prize.

    Aside from the competition Baku winner here [the others were well judged] thank you for the blog…
