And I find that's true in competitions generally. Judges have a lot to get through and give little time to considering a photo: what hits them in the face is likely to get best marks.

But isn't that what the average viewer of the photo will do? So wouldn't that accurately represent the perceived value of the photo by most people? How do you think it would be different if they were not so overwhelmed?
