what makes a good picture?

Judging a winner

Our Judging workshop saw five small groups each judge the same 14 images, award marks out of 20 and then we compared the results. As ever there were some differences of opinion but probably less than in previous workshops - perhaps we're getting better at identifying good pictures. This is a skill we need if we are to improve our performance in competitions - not that we're too competitive.
