Summary – Two recent posts showed three judges’ selections for awards as well as the choices of 50 viewers. See how they compare.
Not surprisingly, judges and “ordinary” viewers
Don’t necessarily have the same tastes when choosing images
Heck – even judges disagree with one another (ditto viewers)
I noted some favoritism in the viewers’ votes – expected I guess
Below are examples from the two sets of selections
Eleven selections each by judges and by viewers
1st: Images chosen by both judges & viewers
(These represent 10% of the total entries)
2nd: Chosen only by judges
3rd: Chosen only by viewers
There was even one image chosen
Only by a single judge (the most experienced) and zero viewers
The 1st eight hold universal appeal – judges and viewers both
Not so much the following two groups of three
What do you think separates the universal from the others?

In case I didn’t explain things well –
Top 8 + Middle 3 = Equal Merit Selectees
Top 8 + Bottom 3 = Viewers’ Choice Selectees
(Notice how I avoided using the word winner
Everyone is a winner who bothered to enter 😉 )
