how do we make ourselves better if we dun even comprehend why that was a good plate of chicken rice?
it sounds funny.
for art, there ARE no guidelines. have to move on from that mentality. judging has always been subjective. name me one photography competition that has NEVER had people complaining about. if there was a guideline, a winning formula, whats the point of calling photography art? call it a math competition.
judges are subjective. the best photos arent the ones that are acknowledged by 3 ppl. its by the masses. so long as there aer people who feel your work is good, i think thats fine enough.
and dun tell me u cant tell which photos of yours are nice meh?
with regards especially to photomarathon, i liked a few of the winners, i like a few of the non winners. end of the day its just a matter of luck. if judge lucky likes urs, good for you. if not just suay.
