As a trained photo judge I see more than 20,000 images/prints in competitions. Most are just average, no technical flaws, but humdrum. Some are above average, but no "wow" factor. To excite me an image has to have a wow factor.

Thanks for sharing your expertise.

What key things do trained photo judges look for?

Can you give a few examples of what constitutes "wow" factor?
