Losers 2017 Cont...

These are the three losing photos I submitted to the "Best Street Photo" segment of The StreetFoto San Francisco 2017 Contest. Didn't think I'd have much of a chance in this particular segment (kinda reminds me why I don't do Lotto), in fact I had no idea what to even submit, it's such a ridiculously broad category- which I'm betting is judged from a rather narrow spectrum of all that could be considered relevant to this genre. So I ended up submitting three shots that all had a camera in it, even though it was a singles competition with no extra points gained for my chosen "theme."

You should start a photo contest called "The best of the Losers". The entrants can only submit photos that have been rejected by other photo contests.

What I'd really like to see are various competitions judged by different sets of judges (prohibitively costly). To what degree would the chosen winners vary? I suspect that in those competitions where there is nothing truly unique, the winners would vary considerably- I just can't spectulate as to how often that is the case. I'm sure "higher end" judges and editors would have a considerably better idea.
