2. I'm not a photographer, so

I don't participate on that level, but I am a big fan of the contest and always vote.

Would it be possible set things up so that we can't see how many votes each photo has before we choose one to vote for? Sometimes I feel my vote can be unintentionally swayed by knowing where the vote count on a particular phots stands in the contest. It's easy to go with the flow and vote for the most popular one, or in my case, I may sometimes tend to go with the underdog.

I don't know if this can be done or how much trouble it would be, it's just something I think about.

Thank you for this beautifully written poll, my dear Grumpy. I hope this will settle the matter for good! CaliforniaPeggy Nov 2023 #1
