How to vote for photos that don't meet subject criteria?
11 months ago

Now I know that meeting criteria can be subjective -- but some of the photos in the "things you never seen before" are gorgeous, but common (spiders, birds, sunsets, people) -- so how the hay am I supposed to vote for those?

When I look at the photo I think "what is this photo about?" And if I don't think "oh my gosh, would you look at that," then I don't think it meets the criteria for this challenge.  Only then do I look at the technical aspects of composition or focus.

What do the rest of you do?  I feel wrong giving a one or two to an excellent photo, but off topic.
