Do you enter photo competitions? I put an entry in one of the local camera club’s competitions. It was an ‘open’ competition i.e. entries can be any subject. It was some time ago, but I’ve been thinking about that experience recently.
I entered a square format image. The judges comments…paraphrased and shortened a bit:
I don’t like square format images. Its not the natural aspect ratio that our eyes see. Why would you present a square image…
He went on about it for some time.
