    You can customize Pixoto to pretty much whatever you want it to be.

    I made my own Secret Amateur Contest site within the Pixoto world. I just set myself goals. 600+ is Big Win. 500s (which can still win awards in at least some categories) is Good Win. 400s I don't delete.

    I just had one pop up to 576 points. I tell myself it didn't go higher because, unlike the top winners, it still looks like the scene I saw when I took the picture. I made a number of adjustments, but when it started not looking like the scene, I backed off.

    Pixoto has been a wonderful learning tool for me, a rank amateur. Just stick with it for a while, figure out how to make it work the way you want it to.

    Pixoto is a wonderful site,and i feel that many AMATEUR photographers using normal digital cameras ,no mater how well they do,just because of there non professional cameras,they don't get the result what professional do.i checked it myself ,i took a picture with a highly professional camera of Nikon and than i took the same pic with my normal Nikon digital camera......the difference was obvious.That's why i think Professional and AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHY categories should be kept separate so that new comers don't get upset when they see in spite of working so hard they don't get the marks or positions they feel they deserve.PIXOTO should judge whether the new comers photograph should go in amateur category or profesional category.
    secondly i would like to see profesional photographers comment on different photographs,which will be very helpful
