...are we allowed to post our opinions on how the poll is going so far? Or is that too much?

I guess it shouldn't be much of a problem to post your opinion. o_o Something bothering you about it?

Why the hell is a baby in this contest? Why is it winning? This just seems ridiculous to me, not because I hate babies (which I do btw), but because simply entering it automatically guarantees votes for it. It's a baby! There is nothing at all remarkable about this baby, I would go so far as to say it looks the same as all other babies, yet people are drawn to it, will vote for it. Why? Because of social pressure. "ZOMG there's a baby! *click*"

Even though you hate babies, that shot fits the definition of a portrait the best out of all entries.

I think the third one fits it as well, let's not count that out. And the blurry one, though it's blurry as hell, also fits. And, if this were really about shots that fit the theme, why were the other chosen to go into the finals? I didn't see the entry thread, but I assume it can only be because of the lack of better fitting shots. Still, better to have 3 to vote from than 3 ok ones and 2 wth ones.

Capernicus: only 5 people participated, so I did not narrow the shots down. Besides, had I actually been strict, the baby shot would have won no contest since the other shots do not really qualify as portraits, except for shot no. 3 and no. 1. However shot no. 3 looks like a shot of someone who is having their portrait done and not like a portrait of them while shot no. 1 should be cropped much more tightly.
