I had the honor of being a primary (and final) judge in Dominance War IV. It was a difficult yet fun task that included cutting over 600 entries down to 75 with a couple of other artists. Then after that i put my top 15 in order and wrote some comments about the entries. Since i have been in past Domwars i took this on with a certain level of seriousness, constantly weighing out why one was better than another. I cut all 75 thumbnails into pieces using Image Ready and then ordered them by dragging them around in Dreamweaver, and using the built in Contrast/Brightness tools to darking ones i didn't go for to help focus things down to the final 15.
