Judging prints by the OPTIC method  

O is for Originality
e.g Judges are looking for something different.
Often achieved by different lighting.

P is for Presentation
Is the mount clean? Are the edges straight?
Is the mount the correct size?

T is for Technical
Is it in focus? Is the depth of field (DOF) sufficient?
Are the colours correct and is the exposure correct?

I is for Impact
Has it got the WOW factor? Is it the picture that draws
your immediate attention....the picture that stands out
from all others?

C is for Composition
Is there a centre of interest? Is it on the thirds? Is there a leading line
or an S curve? Should the picture be vertical or horizontal?
Is the horizon straight?

In judging, allow 2 points for each letter.
