Ok, I'd just love to know how a fucking close-up of a dog is beating other photos that have way better aesthetics, lighting, composition etc.
I'm calling vote begging or multi-accounts.And if the votes are legit.. just wow guys. At least the other photographers got off their asses and went on an adventure to get their photos. This dude just goes to his backyard and shoots a novice picture of his dog, and I say novice because part of the dogs rear paw is cropped out and there is literally nothing special or skillfull about the shot. Literally point, shoot, hurrr gonna wins. Get out with that bullshit.
That's what I was thinking... Or people may be associating the photo and the name underneath the photo together. Rather than the name above.
