Bad photos (no focus). What are these photos called? I am highly qualified to pontificate on this subject.( not that i always feel the need to be qualified on a subject in order to pontificate on it. ) I have made many many of these photos over the years. I call them "mistakes". Sometimes these mistakes even cause me to question if i should even own a ...

IMO, a neural net would be overkill for identifying blurred images. Just run an edge detection filter on it. If there are no strong edges anywhere in the frame, then it's blurred.

I would search for "out of focus photography" or "blurred photo". In digital image processing software "unsharp masking (USM)" is used as an image sharpening technique. Maybe you'll find some useful images under this term too. Have a nice day.

Most people will evaluate images subjectively, by how they react to them, without trying to go any deeper than that. They'll say "I'll like it" or "I don't like it" and they would have trouble expressing why - they'll probably even get annoyed and hostile if you you'll ask them for a better reason. A deeper analysis of their reactions may be more related to ...

I think you are stuck on the difference between technical qualities and aesthetic/emotional qualities. The first image is "dark and gloomy;" and that automatically invokes an emotional response... it's basically instinctual, and the viewer will create "a story" to go with that (however abstract/unconscious). The second image has more technical qualities; ...

I often wonder if the question lies in how the pictures are being assessed. If it is a case of swipe left, like, swipe left, like, on a mobile phone I can see the roof-scape doing better. It is easier to read, the shapes are well defined. My only obvious negative, and this is a personal thing, is the graduated filter darkening the tower to the right of frame....

"Good" is a fairly nebulous term, particularly when speaking of the aesthetic value of something. What one person likes, another may not. Which is a better entre, filet mignon or foie gras? (Assuming both are excellently prepared) Which is a better novel? East of Eden or The Great Gatsby? Which is the best symphony? Beethoven's 9th, Mahler's 2nd, ...
