I was sitting eating lunch flicking through some photos I'd taken and was wondering how I evaluate my own work. How do I judge whether something is good or not. Is it that it matches some compositional rules? That friends or family like it? That it's similar in style or tone to photographers I admire?
I'd hope that as I take more photos that i'd continue to improve. Does that mean that photos I think are good today, I may dislike in the future?
How do you test your photos?
