There are principles of good design that when used properly, will make a good image much better, and a great image dynamite. Does your image use point, line, color, form or shape, space, texture, and/or pattern to effectively communicate your intent? Does the image portray a sense of unity, balance, proportion, rhythm/repetition/similarity, hierarchy/dominance/emphasis/figure to ground. Let’s also add a few of the gestalt principles into the mix: Closure (our tendency to see and assume something which is not technically there/to fill in the missing pieces), Continuance (our tendency to follow a visual or suggested path), and Proximity (the two-dimensional relationship of objects to each other within the frame). For more on these Gestalt principles and others, visit our Juror’s article mentioned below. If you have images that clearly illustrate one or several of the above mentioned elements and/or principles of design, we would love to see them.
