This photo was recently submitted to 2 national competitions/exhibitions. One is run by the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain and the other by the Royal Photographic Society's Nature Group, and I've just received the scores in each - which are 13/15 and 9/15 respectively. I'm very pleased with 13/15, which was the highest score given to any of the 15 photos submitted by my local club; and I'm a little disappointed with 9/15. Anyway, the point I want to raise is the fact that there is a significant difference (25%) between the 2 scores. This either illustrates the extent to which judging is subjective, or it could be explained by there being different standards in the 2 competitions. My guess is that it's the former.
Does anyone have any thoughts or comments?
