Consolation prizes were given to #2 and #3 of each category who were present at our Christmas potluck. 

For your information, the photos were judged based on several factors.  General aesthetics is the wow factor upon first viewing a photo.  Technical quality includes image sharpness (focus), exposure, colour balance, and light. 

Image composition is complex and very subjective, but includes how the subject is framed, depth of view and/or placing the subject in the context of the landscape, how the subject and background interact (is the background distracting?), flow of visual elements through the frame, and more. 

Story is simple to explain but difficult to achieve:  does the image tell a story?  Finally, creativity and difficultly of obtaining the image are taken into account.
