In determining which were my favorite images, I selected first on whether it spoke to me.  If two images were submitted, I picked which of those two I liked more.  Then I considered the composition of the image, attention to detail, and whether the lighting was too dark or too washed out.  That eliminated some I liked for silly little reasons like hair that didn’t look natural or a pose or clothing that had problems.  If there was postwork, I also considered whether the postwork added or detracted from the image.  That left me with 12.  Finally, I eliminated four.  A different day, I’d probably have eliminated a different four.  I found in most cases, I like the more vibrant images.

Edit:  These are the eight I selected, in order of current preference.  However, the order is completely arbitrary and has changed several times.  I just keep moving tabs around blindly.  Blame that on the new neighbor who thinks it’s acceptable to play music (with a throbbing base beat) into the wee hours of the morning.  It was 3 am before I was able to sleep.

I appended a or b to the post number based on whether it is the first or second of the two submitted.

Decisions, decisions, decisions. This was very tough because there are not just a lot of great ideas, but excellent renders and excellent comping that I had to pass on just to choose my final 8 (and I initially started with 20):

8th - MicioDue (second image); file name: MicioDue2.jpg
7th - Chohole (first image); file name: chohole.jpg
6th - Geminii23 (second image); file name: Geminii232.jpg
5th - FroschGott (second image); file name: FroschGott2.jpg
4th - Fobok1 (second image); file name: Fobok12.jpg
3rd - Storypilot (first image); file name: Storypilot.jpg
2nd - Laticis (second image); file name: Laticis2.jpg
1st - Cuisle (only image); file name: Cuisle.jpg

Great work all.

I see that some of you have decided to post 1-8 in alphabetical order instead of favorites…but that does quite a disservice to those of us at the back end of the alphabet.  I’d like to politely suggest that those who have yet to vote would really consider which is their favorite out of their top 8, so that some who might rank higher won’t end up not making it simply because they’re too close to the end of the alphabet.  (Trust me, I hated almost always being lined up near the back in grade school…! wink )

that is a bit weird.. when it comes to adding everything up I’ll be assuming everything is ordered not alphabetically but in order of favourite images

I totally agree.  I will say that assuming Stonemason uses a point system, such as ranking # 1 at 8 points, 2 at 7 points, etc. it might create an imbalance if every time your entry shows up at rank #8.  Even if he uses a simple system of how many votes a person got for each ranking slot it would probably still be unbalanced. 

Hopefully anyone that voted in that fashion will check this thread again before voting ends and edit their post accordingly.

Select your 8 best images and add them in order, with the first being your favourite image.

Well, these wound up being my top 8:

1. Isikol #68 1st image http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/20404/P60/#299487
2. RawArt #116 1st image http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewreply/299562/

8. storypilot #141 1st image http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/20404/P135/#299596

I’m just floored by all the amazing entries, though. There are more than a few images that I thought were sure winners when I first saw them, that didn’t wind up among my eight choices because the level of competition was so high…

(I’ve sat here with this message drafted for hours now, mulling over my choices in the back of my head while doing other things…better just get it over with I suppose!)

I hate to point this out. It is not Posted but if you Could check your Votes and see if the Image/s POST number is included in your list of Votes it will also SAVE much hunting and editing for them to be added. If yours has them now nothing else needs done.
