Winter photo competition

  PC Advisor 14:37 06 May 2011

We've whittled entries to our winter photo competition down to a shortlist of 10. Click here to see the top 10, and vote for your top 3 in our latest poll. Voting will close in a week's time - 5.30pm on Friday the 13th of May, and each winner will either receive one of two copies of Corel PaintShop Pro X3 or a copy of VideoStudio Pro X3, WinDVD Pro 2010 or Painter 11.0. Thank you to everyone who took part!

You might want to change the wording on the voting page - you ask for top three, but the heading says tick as many as you like.

Do you not have an Alternative Vote system in place so voters can rank the photos?

PC Advisor does not use AV I'm afraid, alan14. We'll just add up the votes for each photo.

If there's one photo you prefer overwhelmingly to any other, however, you can just vote for that one - it's not compulsory to vote for three.

Well spotted on the 'tick as many as you like' thing - that's an automated message that appears on our polls when multiple answers are allowed. But in this case we ask readers to limit themselves to three choices.

Thanks for your votes!

Is it my imagination or are there less votes than usual? Only 131 votes so far. Can people find the poll link easily? It used to be more obvious.

You didn't see this then?

No, sorry FE, but I didn't. Doesn't matter anyway, I'm just a happy snapper!

Nowadays, it seems that photography is more about subsequent manipulation in Photoshop, than the original image quality.

I've done it myself. My eldest daughter's wedding photo changed from a hotel to being on a beach in the Maldives! Question is...does that qualify as a photo, or should it only be the original?

I'm still trying to find the photograph of Kate Middleton paddling that F.E. mentioned earlier!!
