Default To cry or to laugh?

Tired of not knowing what really think about your own photos? Not sure if you should trust what other members are writing about them?
Not a problem anymore! ACQUINE is your answer!
It will say if your photo is below average or highly rated!

What is ACQUINE? "Aesthetic Quality Inference Engine" is a "machine-learning based online system of computer-based prediction of aesthetic quality for color natural photographic pictures." Incredible, but true! ;)

Well... I'll admit... it can be depressive at times! :)) One of my photos having been chosen as a favorite by many members is actually... below average having received a mere 19.9/100 !!!! But it could be worse. One of the D-Day landings by Robert Capa has been rated as a 1.5/100. :)))


Well... I prefer to laugh!

Claire

Hey Claire;

Funny site... out of curiosity I went through an assortment of my shots. This one got 76.7/100 while this one only got 15.5/100.

Wonder what algorithms they use?

thanks for the link Claire. A great fun indeed when we saw the result on some photos of most talented photographers : )
By the way, as you mentionned Robert Capa, here is a link (in French) that could interest you : Les valises de Capa

Admitting that the guys are really good technically and academically, it proves that we are still very far from having a machine with aesthetic sensibility. :D

Many of the posts of mine that I have tested are above 80/100 which makes me very proud (LOL), but some of those with more points were well below 50 and one of them 19.4.

Regards,
José

claire, this is well funny, thank you!

the 'lowest' rating (or at least as far as my patience went to check them out ;o))) ) i could get for one of my TE gallery instances was <a href="http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo741167.htm" target=_blank>4.6/100 for this one</a> (can't blame them though, it has a lousy finishing here) and <a href="http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo619936.htm" target=_blank>7.3/100 for this one</a>

what (i think) i figured out is that the machine simply loves blue color cast since i got <a href="http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo637231.htm" target=_blank>96.7/100 for this one</a> and <a href="http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo565968.htm" target=_blank>98/100 for this one</a> (!) and also very much likes strong golden cast given by golden hour like <a href="http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo682540.htm" target=_blank>in this one (95.6/100)</a> or simply 'unattended' white balance like in <a href="http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo559923.htm" target=_blank>this one (94.5/100)</a>

... still love my extremely subjective (trying hard to be) human 'rating mode' a lot better ;o)))

I played a little bit with this "thing"
googled "capa"
selected four different URLs of the same shot "D-Day Landings"
here the result for the same photo
34/100
75/100
15/100
55/100
with your 1.5/100
impressive software ^^

It's not accurate. My TanMan got 17.2. Should have been about a 3.
