Hello everyone,

I'm very excited to share with you, that we have added a rating facility to images in our Event Highlight gallery for our last Safari Group event in Whitby... may I ask for your help in rating the images, which will help with our competition?

Thanks to fellow Safari Group member, Mike Hessey for this simple description of the rating :

"Please rate each image by clicking the appropriate number of stars (more stars equals better). You can rate as many pictures as you want, but you can only rate each image once."

Also, please click on the thumbnail to see the image at a reasonable size before rating... as the thumbnails are square crops of the full image.

I would hugely appreciate your feedback on the ease of rating, and any other comments which will allow us to improve the experience of visitors?

Also, if you like what we're doing here... please drop me an e-mail via my profile, and I will be happy to include you in all future Safari Group projects!

Kind Regards

Brian

Hi, thanks to some great feedback... we have redesigned the gallery to make voting fairer... this gallery shows the images larger, and you will only see the overall scores *after* you have rated the image!

If you have any further thoughts / suggestions for improvements, we would really appreciate them!

Here's the new gallery :

Thanks for looking :)

Thanks to even more constructive feedback, we've now removed the photographers' identity from the image gallery, and moved the order around. Hopefully this will make the voting much fairer.

Nice one, thanks... did you find it obvious how to vote? and how did the overall ratings compare with your own ratings?

Cheers

That is a great voting system, even better with the ID being anonymous.

Thanks Invicta, it's been a huge success... we now have the winners for the challenge, and two reports from the Safari Group for download.

You can request these reports, and be informed of future special reports here :
http://www.ukphotosafari.org/ukpsg-reports/

The first report has impressions from each of the Safari Group members, describing the event and equipment used.

The second report presents the results of the challenge, including a presentation of the top three images from each member, together with a photographic critique from fellow Safari Group member, and Welsh Photographic Federation Judge - Dave Bennett.

Kind Regards

Brian
