PDN Photo Annual 2004 presents the year's most outstanding images from photographers, magazines, and agencies in 8 separate categories. The commercial work is great, but don't miss the personal and student categories. (Flash intro. Note to sponsors: larger online images next year, please!)

Which starts an interesting train of toughts : what makes a photo better then others ? What makes the difference, if the difference exists and is presumed to be significant ? Why is your family photo not worthy of international shows ?

Rad. Jody Ake was a grad student during my BFA at the University of Oregon. Nice to see him getting some recognition.

elpapacito: According to Ansel Adams, There are “no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.” If you're willing to settle for some good tips, the Photography Compositions Articles Library has quite a few, including the basics.

Why is your family photo not worthy of international shows?

Probably because you either over- or under-exposed it.
Probably because it's not in focus, or there's no real subject.
Probably because it's of your family, and not something interesting. :)
