Transcript of Judge's view of photos

Composition "Consulting the rules of composition before taking a photograph is like consulting the laws of gravity before taking a walk."

Edward Weston Reality "It may be a good thing to copy reality; but to invent reality is much better."

Giuseppe Verdi "I KEEP six honest serving men

Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who."

Rudyard Kipling Art "In art there is only one thing that counts: the bit that cannot be explained."

Georges Braque "Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man's growth without destroying his roots."

Composition
Emotional Appeal What do 'we' consider? Does it work? WOW Factor! Do we keep coming back? FOCUS:
Is the image sharp? If not, is it intentionally soft and successful?

CLEANLINESS:
Is it free of marks, dust spots, stains, lens flare, etc?

EXPOSURE:
Is it too light, too dark or just right?

LIGHTING:
Is the lighting too contrasty, too flat or just right?

COLOURS:
