|· What should be considered when scoring images?|
First, be sure you are viewing the image at full-size. Smaller 'thumbnail' and intermediate-sized images can look very different than the full-sized version.
From the gallery page click once on the thumbnail for an intermediate-sized image and then once more on the intermediate image to see the full-sized image.
In judging we ask that you address three criteria:
- IMPACT: Does the image have a winning quality, emotion, character, creativity, charm, curiosity, etc. that lifts it out of the ordinary?
- COMPOSITION: Are the shapes, forms, lines, texture, patterns, and color of the image arranged or organized to make a pleasing, interesting or imaginative picture?
- TECHNICAL QUALITY: This relates to camera handling such as focus, exposure and how the image is presented such as cropping and cleanliness.
After consideration of the above, give each image a score ranging from 1-10. One (1) representing a poor image, ten(10) a superior image, and five (5) an average image.
