Why ?

Hiya, I mean this to be a friendly request. I really want to know why number 3 (in this image) came in 7 places above number 2. Clearly, number 2 is a better chop. This is meant to have no reflection on anyone (except maybe those judging). I really want to know what I'm missing here. Is it the subject, like C. Walken? what? Please please please to author of number 3, don't be offended by this. That's not my intent. K?

I say "Why not?"

If that's the way they placed that's the way it goes...I don't know how u can "clearly" say one is better than the other when that's the way the vote fell.

Personally I liked #3 as it was more recognizable.

That's a reply and that's what I was looking for. Thanks Kellie. I guess I felt it was better because it looks like the beard is showing below the clean shaven chin on 3 and the forehead is messed up. But, you do have a point and it is well taken. Thanks.

I was unable to vote in this one but I'll throw in my two cents, MUD. 64 entries probably offers the bulk of the reason.
When there are a lot of entries I think people tend to speed vote and don't look as hard. I believe the tendency is to pick out the obvious top plates, 8s and 9s and then it goes a little arbitrary on the 7s and 6s as that is where the bulk of the chops will fall. And since these sort of contests generally wind up being a head-swap fest, with so many so similar in skill and subject they get the glib-passover treatment unless really exceptional.It seems you almost have to have a rocket flaming out of the subjects ass to get people to take the extra few moments to rate it with high marks.
However that is the viewpoint of a cantankerous old fart and may or may not have a grain of truth in it. LOL
Anyway, obvious technique and skill aside, the color was a bit washed out on #3 and could have been boosted a bit to agree with the obvious color boost to the eyes and a wee bit of sharpening. That is where I think it could have used some minor touch up. But dude, that's really just a guess.

I really appreciate your taking the time to comment. I think you may be right. What's funny too is that I had another entry in this contest (I spent all of 5-10 min on it) and it ranked above both of these. I spent a lot of time on Walken. Oh well, nuff said. Thanks again.... Both of you.

My name is MUD anyway.
