Thought for the day: Ways to Lose a Photography Contest
I was the judge for a local camera club earlier this week. They have some lovely images. But while evaluating the photographs I realized that some people in every contest make little errors that hurt their chances of winning. This is a partial list:
- Images that are in the wrong category (a color picture in a Monochrome competition).
- Submitting two similar photos (that compete with each other)
- Over sharpening (easy to see white lines around details)
- Titles that are weak or do not read well. Titles will be read and in some categories (Journalism for example) are a critical part of the story.
- Images that do not reflect the title
