Need help with a photo contest!

Hi guys, hope everybody had a great New Year!

A model car brand is hosting a photography competition on Facebook, but sadly, because it's a social media website, winners are decided through number of likes and shares. Unfortunately, the number of Facebook friends I have can't compete with some of the other competitors', so I need your help!

Can you guys please help me like, and share my entry? It is important to share because each "like" is worth 1 point, while a "share" is worth 5, and I'm almost 1000 points behind someone who managed to get over 900 points in an hr this morning!

Here is one of my entries, and it is the one that I'm hoping will give me a win (the next 2 photos are mine too):

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

Although I haven't had any photography training, and am hardly a photographer, I'd like to believe that I'm the only competitor who actually gave it a decent shot! (awful thing to say I know, but look at the other competitors' entries!)

Please help me out people!

Thanks in advance :-)

Thanks Duell!

An update on the competition: Shares now = 0 points.

They recognized that they can not possibly keep an accurate record of the number of shares, due to the ability to share privately on Facebook, so they thought it is only fair to take out the sharing system entirely.

All these social media contests are a bit lame. It actually only shows how much friends you've got instead of showing who has the best photo. But nevertheless. I liked it

Thanks a lot guys!

It is true that these social media contests are a test of your popularity more than anything, but I thought I'd give it a shot anyway.
