Liz gets votes because she posts interesting images that catch your eye and makes you get a closer look. That's it. You guys all think this is a competition for who puts the most time and effort into their image, but it's not. We're voting for which catches our eye and looks the nicest.
Liz's has that quality most of the time. Even this time, scrolling through the images, hers was one of the ones that caught my eye. No, she's not a super great gfx artist as far as her knowledge with pro effects, but what she does know works for her since she definitely knows how to work with it. Simple manipulations can sometimes look a lot nicer than a shitload of smudging and C4D spamming, ya know.
For the record, I voted RPB. His was great in my opinion. Liz's would be my second pick though since it evokes thoughts and emotions, something no other person seems to know how to do in this section except for Leon, who never enters.
Oh and btw, if it were up to me, you guys would be banned for a day just mentioning the words "Popularity Contest". Shame on you. How about some humility? Sometimes someone who isn't seemingly as talented as you does finish the race first. Hell, there's a damn children's story about it.
