    Sorry, Paul, I have to be cruel to be kind. The child is cute, but the
    piccy is not. Shot from an adult standing height, bad background,
    child's feet cut off, image out of focus.

    Do it again, choose a better background, get down to the child's level,
    watch the lighting, move in closer or zoom in to make the child bigger
    in the frame.

    That was a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10.
    :)
    It was crap, but that was beside the point.
    Advertising for positive votes on a photo is just plain stupid in my book,
    and is quite deserving of ridicule. It's like buying votes for a popularity
    contest, and then believing people really like you.
    "Momma says sometimes people do things that, well, just don't make no
    sense..."

    You are too kind.
    Adverts for votes on a pic is in poor taste.

    Precisely my point of view too.

    Awwwwwww... come on guys. Who cares. I didn't want to look because I thought
    "oh God, another stupid Virus link", that changed to "Oh, people replied, so
    there really is a photo", to having read your reply "Oh no, not yet another
    cute child pic, bleh", but then i clicked, and apart from being alarmed at that
    purple soda and how people could drink a PURPLE thing, what I see is *not*
    someone trying to make a work of art, but maybe just someone who wants to get a
    Soda bottle with his little kid's pic so he can show the kid and amuse him, and
    maybe even keep it for memory.

    It's a cute motive, the dude isn't trying to be an artist, he just wanna get
    the kid's pic on a soda bottle.

    Come to think of it. Having had a look at the other pics and the site. Sorry
    dude, I won't vote for you. The other images are better, and you can pay to
    have your image put on 6 bottles of soda for not too much money. So go ahead
    and pay, don't waste our time and attention.

    I didn't notice that motive... Ya, OK. Cute...
    But sheesh! Why spend time trying to artificially get your pic voted on
    when he obviously didn't take even .25 seconds thinking about how he took
    the picture itself???
    Can I change my "1" vote to a zero?

    Also, especially when you can pay $34 to have 6 bottles of soda with your image
    on them. Not much if you consider how much it costs to take a pic and then
    gather votes, at least in terms of time and effort and insults. :)
