I appreciate the perspectives. The latter part is pretty much where I was with my submissions. In the vein of "To thine own self be true." ... I didn't chase the judges / audience.

For me, this submission I had a multi-fold perspective.

1) To gauge how I felt about my work being submitted to that (perceived) level of competition.
2) To see how much of the juried work was similar to mine (genre / style / perspective, etc.)

My take away from the results, is that I felt good about my work, even though none was selected for the show.
That, and I didn't really see anything at the show that was similar to my submissions.

Additionally, I felt as though the level of work that we regularly see pass through FM is easily on par with the level of those that were selected. I didn't "chase the judges" with images that aligned with their preferences (could have, but chose distinctly not to). I certainly could have chosen different, and could (but won't) second guess my choices for submission. Rather, I got the insight I was looking for from the results ... so, it's all good.
