When we attend Shutterfest, we are presented with a unique opportunity to submit image to an image competition. This is considered the best of the best. We had never submitted before so we went in with two images into the Beginners category. We scored respectively a 76 on each image. This is a great score for a beginner entry. The knowledge gained on how to improve and work to better our images both in set up and post processing is priceless.
The scoring process allows little leeway. 75 - 80 is considered Average Professional Standard. 80 and above receives a merit award. We are proud to meet the average professional standard on our first year of submissions.
Here are the two images submitted.
