  • Gene jb

    item and item What is the rating?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      There is a legend at the end of the file. n - page views of the contestant, u.p. - unique page views of the contestant

  • Nina

    Hurrah! I had no doubt that you would punish the cheaters! Arkady, thank you for such a contest and for honestly awarding the prize! Congratulations!

  • Stas

    I will be glad to participate again!

  • Kostya

    Thanks for participating!

  • Vladimir

    Arkady thanks for the contest.
    It was especially fun to see the statistics fall ...
    It’s probably still easier to take photos than flash mobs ...

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Not at all :) there will be more.

  • Boris

    Unfortunately, one of the weakest pictures won. I don’t believe that the votes were collected without cheating. And about the last two columns in the rating: I looked through ALL, without exception, works. And more than once. Why are my views not reflected in the “I” column for those below the 18th row?
    If at the beginning the number of votes was declared without additional conditions, then it should be so, and manual control of the results of the contest does not paint the organizer.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Does not paint me, I agree. In the same way as participants do not paint, an unfair game.

    • Alexander

      Really! The winner is a photo that is no good in all respects for the autumn competition! And what camera was it filmed? The feeling that the phone ... ..

  • Boris

    Honesty is determined by the terms of the competition. Once there is a loophole in the conditions, either close it for ALL, or not touch anyone. And so ... the organizer has no logic - we ignore the bad, and moderately bad - let them be)))
    But the idea of ​​the competition is good. And I can only imagine how much personal time it took!
    Photo winner sucks. But the “Leaving Autumn” was even very impressive!

    • Arkady Shapoval

      The outgoing autumn was chosen for a very long time. In the next competition I will use the autumn experience.

  • Alexander

    Hello! I believe that the competition is as fair as possible, since everything is stipulated in the conditions. I don't know much about how it works on social networks, but for such people there was a SECOND prize! And what about you, that some participants were disqualified ?! This added intrigue, and I think it speaks about the fairness of the competition. I am not personally acquainted with any of the organizers of the site and doubted the victory ... I want to thank all the participants in the competition. There are a lot of good, worthy jobs and competitors! I am sure it was difficult for the organizers to choose a winner among so many works (just when there are 2 of them, and then there are as many as 175!) Special thanks to the participant of the competition Irina Zhuravleva, she introduced me to this blog, she also invited me to participate in the competition! Ira - THANKS! Arkady - S P A S I B O !!!

    • Arkady Shapoval

      It's my pleasure. I’m one organizer and editor, but the winner was chosen with another 5 of my friends prof. photographers. We spent a lot of time until they reached an agreement. Also, I want to thank Nate, Sofia, Ira, Igor and Alexei, who helped me.

  • Boris

    To Alexander. 1) Your work is really good. Although Arkady is cunning about the participation of prof. photographers to help. 2) There was no talk of disqualification anywhere (possibly only in the very last days).
    Arkady. 1) If there was a disqualification, by what criteria? And what is the winner’s payoff better \ worse than the first three? In the third post I write about this and not a single direct answer)))

    • Arkady Shapoval

      1) I do not dissemble
      2) It was not, but I, as the organizer of the contest, added
      3) Disqualification by the criterion of the ratio of the number of votes to the number of page views
      Where else straighter?

  • Bogdan

    The really winning shot is weak for the Grand Prix! Arkady no offense.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Thanks. No offense :)

  • Oleg Yudin

    good afternoon. “Leaving autumn” is a good job (the only one I voted for;)) but the winner, to put it mildly, not very

    • Alexander

      Oleg, thanks!

    • Alexander

      Your only “shot” was accurate (see avatar)

      • Arkady Shapoval

        Great spotted!

      • Oleg Yudin

        With such optics! (see avatar) :)

  • Taras Simonenko

    No one doubted that there would be a million shouts about the photo, that it is weak and does not correspond to the first place.
    This is normal and this cannot be avoided; I would advise spiteful critics and especially ardent connoisseurs from myself to accept this and put up with an allegedly inconsistency.
    Successes dear).

    Arkady, because I didn’t find your email, I leave you my own for contact: katatonia696 @ mail.
    There is a small request for you, as Internet access is difficult at this time,
    please drop a call or SMS to tel. 067 477 67 97 or 095 614 12 19, I will call you back.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      I'll pick you up tomorrow.

    • Jury

      Taras, take care of the prize! If you do not understand why you received it, then it will remain your first and only photo prize.

      Spiteful and especially ardent connoisseur)))

  • Alexey

    I will express the same opinion that the “outgoing autumn” is really better than the winner.
    The second point - I have no doubts about the honesty and decency of the organizer, Arkady is great, just maybe I did not take into account all the points.
    And now about the views - guys, this is complete nonsense. If you look at the rating, then many have 4, 8 views, while others have 100, 400, what are these masterpieces? And what exactly is the promotion? And if a person “lives” in contact? So he threw a cry, and all his friends rushed to do the views. Yeralash reminds me, when the boy got to the girls' labor lesson, and the teacher asked him to rate who baked the cakes better. Although he ate other cakes with pleasure, Krutikov won, because he likes her, and he barely ate her cakes, and his stomach ached later. So in our competition.

  • PSTD

    Will there be more lens guessing contests? even without prizes, it’s interesting :)

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Yes they will.

  • Maksim

    Thank you to all honest participants, excellent work :)

  • Konstantin

    Thanks to all participants for their excellent work, congratulations to the winners!
    Arkady, thank you separately for interesting contests and creative inspiration for the next contests and the maintenance of such a wonderful blog!

  • Victor Brightly

    I think all the participants of the contest somehow got a lot of good positive impressions, and this is not enough. I want to congratulate the winners on the success of the competition. Regarding the result. It seems to me that in such contests the only right is the judging of the respected Arkady with friends. Everything else, one way or another, is not objective.

  • Jury

    “Not objectively” - to put it mildly ... the more friends in contact, the cooler the photographer)))
    and the winning picture does not add credibility to the site. IMHO.

    • Oleg Yudin

      Look from the other side - as a result, the site received several thousand likes, and this is also what no authority

      • Jury

        here I am about the same - it is clear that the competition was held for the sake of advertising the site, why then disqualify the most "liked"? and in general, the winning shot, as well as the very conduct of the competition (changing the rules "on the fly" and manual control of the results) so "lower" the site that no "likes" will compensate for it ...

        • Arkady Shapoval

          The competition was just for the sake of competition, and not for the sake of what you write about.

          • Jury

            Well, if so, then for the "advertising" I apologize. All the same, I am convinced that the rules of the competition must be observed, especially since you yourself have established them.
            ... only the lens would be lost (it was thrown out anyway)

  • Jury

    PS: no matter what, thanks for your work, for the site and the contest!)

    • Arkady Shapoval

      The next competition will be without social networks, maybe there are any wishes about this?

      • Jury

        maybe it is worth opening a new topic for suggestions and wishes for a new competition? otherwise, judging by the "likes", this page is not very visited ...

  • Natalia

    Eh, Arkady ... and SO admired how "Ducks are flying" ... even for the sake of a decent photo, the sympathy prize was added, but in the end they chose another one :( nobody can be trusted ...
    “Ducks are flying” is still better than “Outgoing Autumn”!

    • anonym

      In my opinion, this proves that Arkady was not the only one who decided who won.

  • Bigfot

    In my opinion, of the two photos, “Leaving Autumn” is much more interesting in all artistic senses ...
