What makes a good picture? Reflections on image quality research
The paper begins by reviewing the development of image quality concepts from simple engineering measures of fidelity, through attempts to improve these measures by accounting for low level features of the human visual system.
In the case of photographic capture and rendering, the issue of fidelity of the image to the original scene is discussed, taking account of the consequences of colour appearance phenomena and colour preference.
Finally, the relationship between image quality and higher order cognitive factors including naturalness, composition and region of salience are examined.

Started in 2002 and merged with the Color and Imaging Conference (CIC) in 2014, CGIV covered a wide range of topics related to colour and visual information, including color science, computational color, color in computer graphics, color reproduction, volor vision/psychophysics, color image quality, color image processing, and multispectral color science. Drawing papers from researchers, scientists, and engineers worldwide, DGIV offered attendees a unique experience to share with colleagues in industry and academic, and on national and international standards committees. Held every year in Europe, DGIV papers were more academic in their focus and had high student participation rates.
