Photography Forum | Screeners' Choice
Now, forgive me if I'm speaking out of turn, but, although I fully accept that both pics are of an extremely high standard, I would have thought that there must be a sufficient number of merit-worthy photos uploaded onto P-M for the screeners to be a tad more creative when it comes to making their 'choice(s)'.
After all, variety is (allegedly) the spice of life...
I do think more variation in selecting is rewuired but if a screener see's a picture that they feel is worthy of SC then he/she can simply vote for it. Of course it's a matter of opinion and several factors are considered.Not just the quality but also the subject ( rarity etc )
Maybe a system where a shot can be nominated and then needs a majority vote to be SC can be implied but as I said "ones man's trash is another man's treasure" and a great picture may not get selected just because 1 of the screeners does not agree.
I see your point guys but if we look at it from the other side,if both shots are identical and of same high standard how can 1 be chosen over the other?
Ever the diplomat! You can always be relied upon to exercise the wisdom of Solomon. However, in truth, me thinks that the screeners have inadvertently dropped a ....... on this occasion. That said, none of us is infallible and I remain of the opinion that, overall, they make a pretty good fist of what must be a thankless task.

If such a system is not already in place, then I, for one, would welcome its introduction. Other sites also invite their contributors to play an active role in the selection process (e.g JP's People's Choice Award) and it would be interesting to know what others think about this type of 'audience participation'.
