Abstract Viewers’ Choice

.

Here are the 2014 Abstract Photography Exhibit

Viewers’ Choice Selections

.

50 Viewers voted (3 votes each)

I’m showing the top 11 Vote Getters

To match yesterday’s equal merit image count

(The 1st 6 got 11, 11, 10, 8, 7, 6 viewers’ votes respectively

A tie lumped the final 5 shown at 5 votes each)

.

26 entries (of 78 total – exactly 1/3) got zero votes

Including one that got an Equal Merit nomination from 1 judge

The fact that a judge likes an image doesn’t mean

That it has broad appeal – just that one person liked it 😉

Tune in tomorrow to see what judges liked

vs. what viewers liked

vs. what both liked

and – what, if anything, we can learn from that

Equal Merit Award Winners

.

Chosen by three judges (independently choosing 10 each)

Award required selection by at least two of the three

.

Fair amount of agreement since the possible range was

Between 0 & 15 winners and, here, 11 made the cut

No image was chosen by all three judges

.

Two judges are experienced abstract photographers & judges

One is an “ordinary person” who knows & likes abstracts
