To have any hope of sustaining this I need every bit of automation and speed I can lay my hands on; it's quicker to post the website link than the 2 images. Having the direct link to their results is also more convenient if the person wants to check their current rank.
Your best photo was relatively easy to pick, and takes the #1 spot due to its iconic perfection.

As per the OP, I rank 2 of the photos in your portfolio: the best and worst. Your best photo was ranked #1 compared to all the other people's photos. Your overall portfolio rank is based on how well both your photos did, though. Because your worst photo wasn't as well ranked as your best, your overall ranking got reduced to #4.
I didn't know I had ugly photos, I wouldn't post something knowingly that was ugly
You can PM me if you're interested in what I meant.
... and if you have photos in your port that you think are so bad you don't want anyone rating them... should they really be in your port? You will be judged by many on the quality of your worst photos.
Hm. I think I will put them both back in. I should have left them then. Thank you.
WHOA! This could be the most advanced critique made here. I'm game. So... where do I fit.
BTW-- Neil Snape really is amazing. Been watching his stuff for a while.

All are welcome (though I'm ranking based on overall photo quality, not specifically whatever your contribution to the photo was). I'm also only considering non-18+ images, so don't bother posting if most of your port is nudes.
One of the problems with trying to rank portfolios is that it becomes impossible to do consistently after a while. When you're looking at the 100th portfolio, can you really remember how good the 7th portfolio you looked at was? You could have 100 tabs open and try and compare them all that way, but you'd go insane. You'd also only be comparing small thumbnails, which too often don't tell the whole story.
To solve this, I'll pick the best and worst photo in your portfolio. I'll then feed them in to my web tool. The tool will let me automatically compare each new photo against every single other photo I've previously picked, one at a time. It will show me the new photo and one of the previous ones full-size side by side which will make it very easy to decide which of the two is better. A photo receives a point every time it is chosen as 'better'. Your portfolio rank is then based on the total points your 2 photos have received so far.
Now, the ranking is still just my personal opinion, but at least it is my opinion applied fairly, consistently and accurately over time. And since the web tool shows you how I ranked all the photos, you can decide for yourself if you agree with my opinion on photo quality, and therefore decide if the ranking means something to you.
