Each contest week, there will be three threads. There is the submission thread where the member posts their entry (where the given explanation might be if they feel someone might think it strays from the topic). Then there is the first voting thread, where you pick 2 photos you like out of all. From that, it's narrowed down to the top 5, which is this current thread. From that, the winner...wins, haha, and then the winner picks the next topic for the next week. And then it starts all over again.
I didn't mean to come off rude, so my apologies for that.
