A collection of the best photos published on Flickr in 2006 have been made available on the San Baldo website. It includes options to vote for select photos, a voting process that in many regards feels and looks like one that you see on those hot or not type of sites.

Your first option is to take a look at how the photos have been rated by other users. Please be aware that all of the photos on the site are the best of 2006, and that the rating on this external site is only a rating of good photos. It can happen that a photo gets only 1 point which means that is is not bad in the eye of the voters, but it still may be one of the best photos uploaded in 2006 to Flickr.

The voting process itself is pretty simple. A picture is shown on the left side while the right side holds information about it. A name of the photo is shown plus additional information such as the rating that the picture received so far. If you do rate the picture the next photo will be loaded and you can vote again.

You may skip photos if you do not want to vote. A click brings you to the Flickr page where the photo is shown.

Update: The photos are not displayed in their native resolution, which may make it difficulty to come up with a rating for the photo, considering that you only see a small version of it which may not reveal all the details that you need to come up with a rating.

It is interesting to note that the website is only making available Flickr's 2006 photos of the year and not photos that have been shot in more recent years. This does not reduce the quality of the photos on the site though, and while you can't vote anymore, you can still click on the thumbnails to be taken to the Flickr pages they are hosted on.
