Technique       15 pts

Composition    15 pts

Distinction      15 pts

Specific Section Criteria  50 pts

 

PRIME ELEMENTS of PHOTOGRAPHY JUDGING
The approach to perfection in a rose photograph is judged on five qualities.


Conformance:  The photograph follows the rules of this schedule and the class in which the exhibit is entered. 

Composition:  Includes color quality, lack of distraction, contrast, balance, viewpoint,
framing of the subject, direction of movement and diagonals where applicable.  The point of interest should be the roses(s).

Technique:  Correct exposure, sharp focus for main subject, depth of field and other relevant technical factors.

Distinction:  Distinction is something that sets a photograph apart from others
in its class.  Everything about the photograph is well done.

Page 27

Specific Criteria:
The Rose (Bloom or Spray) – When judging a photograph of a horticultural specimen, many of the rules in the ARS Guidelines & Rules for Judging Roses will be utilized.

The Rose Arrangement – When judging a photograph of a rose arrangement, the rules in the ARS Guidelines for Judging Rose Arrangements will be utilized.

The Rose Garden – Public gardens MUST be named. Roses should dominate within the photograph, and the fact that the flowers are roses should be obvious.

Creative Interpretation – The photograph should demonstrate originality and creativity. Photo-editing software may be used for enhancement. Creative naming of the exhibit is part of the creative interpretation of the exhibit. Individual rose varieties need not be identified on the entry tag for this class.

Macro The photograph should be an extreme close-up of any part of the rose or rose plant.  Color, Black & White, Sepia, or combinations of these are permitted in this class.

Novice Photographers – Many times when judging a novice class, the judge is a little more lenient with the rules, but the same principles as listed above still apply.
