Rules:
- Vote for 1 icon of the least quality. Reasons such as 'I don't like' or 'It's too plain' are not allowed. Actually think about why you are voting out the icon. If the icon is too plain, why is that bad thing? What could have been done to improve the icon?
- Also vote for 1 icon that you feel is the best quality. The reason for this one is optional but encouraged.
- Please do not focus on the icon fitting the theme as your main reason for voting a icon out.
- Keep your icon identity hidden until after the results are posted. Do not vote for yourself or get anyone to vote for you.
- You do not have to be a participant to vote (the more the merrier!).
- Positive votes do not take away from the amount of negative votes. This will change in the event of a tie.
- One person will be eliminated as the result of the voting.
- The comments are screened.
- If you entered and do not vote then you will not be eligible for Community's Choice or Mod's Choice.
- Voting will be open until Monday at around 11 PM ET.




Examples:

Least favorite:
12. The texture really takes away from the focus of the icon and throws off the balance.
120. The image is very sharp in spots including Buffy's hair line & facial features. It could have looked better with either some contrast or using a blur tool.

Favorite:
04. Beautifully cropped.
166. The coloring really makes the icon stand out from the others.

#4 - The crop is nice but the icon is too dark. The characters, especially the one in back are almost lost in the darkness.

#4 - The far crop and negative space is great, but I have trouble making out the subjects. Spike is clear enough, but Buffy gets lost in the dark. I find that far crops often work best if they don't have stark contrast like that - so I would suggest darkening the parts that shouldn't stand out (the very light floor and the window on the left) and maybe lightening the subjects to make them stand out more.

#5 - I like the pervasive red haze, and her downcast look fits the halo texture really well.

#2 - reason- Buffy's face looks like it was painted and looks unnatural, like she is wearing too much make up. If the "make up" effect was toned down this would have been a much better icon.

#4 - reason- I love the coloring.

#1 - I love the colours and the doodles in the background, but I feel that Buffy is too light and lacking in contrast. I think it would have looked better if Buffy's hair and facial features had stood out a little bit more. (Still it's a really good icon and certainly lots better than my own, but I can hardly vote for that...)

#2 - Gorgeous icon, simple and yet glamorous looking.

4 - The crop is very busy; the blobs of light in the cap takes focus away from the subject of the icon. Maybe using the stamp tool to create a flatter background or a background painted in would have helped.

3 - I really like the colouring, but for some reason the texture makes it look odd to me - it draws my eye up above, away from the subject. It's a tiny little bit blurry as well

5 - love the composition
