What happened to all the entries for the Raja POTW contest entries? I went to vote, and most of the posted photos are missing. Doesn't seem fair to start the voting when most of the photos are.....well, gone.

Hi Allison,

The staff removed some of the photos that would be unsuitable for a small circular tag because the subject wouldn't be easily discernible, the format of the photo wouldn't lend itself to a circular crop, etc.

I remember several, personally, that would have been great on a circular format. I feel it was unfair to weed them out, and wonder if there was other criteria at hand.
