So I would argue that judging/selecting photos is not just a matter of taste. But I can't say much more about what it IS a matter of. Perception, maybe.

 

Which is one of the reasons to submit!

A different perspective than one's own plus a peak into how others react to the same brief: priceless as the commercial says.

Me being a simpleton normally just use 1 criteria "do I like it or don't I" without super analysing it.

Andy. 

 

I would agree that that is how we all see or judge photos (art) but we subconsciously take into consideration much of what Steve F listed.

We have a winner..by a dog's nose!  It was was a close race between Doc's Cuban Man and Colblimp's Man and His Dog.  It's over to you Colin!!  Congrats! And thank you to all who voted, I think we have a record of over 60 votes!! I am sorry I couldn't put more images in the final cut, so many were worthy!  It was a joy to go through them all and heartache to cull them down to only 8!

Well I wasn't expecting that, I was convinced Doc was going to win handsomely.  Thanks for all your kind words and to everyone who entered.  Great subject, Michael, you'll have to do this again!  Right, I've to shoot a protest this morning but I'll have a think whilst I'm working and come up with something obscure and/or interesting for the next challenge. 👍😇

Congratulation, Andy.

 

I love Doc and his image, and I loved so many of the other images in this challenge . . . but I voted for Andy. The lighting was less than great, and the colors nonexcistant. But Andy's photo had the strongest 'gesture' as Jay Maisel would call it—the statement that was made by the image. Good on you, Andy!

Well done Andy - great win with an excellent photo! Hopefully you can buy me a coffee at next year's Photography Show!

For me, Andy's pic sums up how many people will be feeling during lockdown: inside, looking out, with a mixture of yearning and nostalgia (and not a mask in sight!)...

The pic was actually taken a few years ago for a pub's website but it kind of fits the current situation.  Thanks John.
