What Makes a Winning Image?

A winning image requires the following attributes:

  1. Artistically or esthetically pleasing to look at (eye catching).
  2. Good composition, not unlike any piece of artwork (layout, brightness contrast, color…).
  3. Technically sound with no charging, sharp focus, no astigmatism and the correct detector and accelerating voltage (usually the lower the better).
  4. Careful and competent use of image processing and colorization.
