I can't agree with that, since you can't know up front what qualities of 
a photo will help or hurt its chances of acceptance to the PPG.  You 
don't and can't know what "they" will consider a good or bad shot, other 
than by reviewing what has been accepted in the past.  And that's iffy 
at best, since the jury for each photo is different.  Plus, the last 
time I wandered around in the PPG, a year or so ago, I mostly felt like 
I was wandering about in a hall of mirrors, the photos fell into so few
