While most of the existing work in aesthetic image quality assessment focuses on the overall (or average) opinion of users, this paper raises the issue of subjectivity (or taste) of aesthetic quality. We argue that subjectivity differs among different images, and investigate what causes such difference. We first analyze statistics of the user ratings of photos in a photo contest website, DPChallenge, in the viewpoint of average and standard deviation values of the ratings. Then, more importantly, we analyze the users' comments in order to identify sources contributing to subjectivity. When considering the importance of personalization in photo applications, we believe that our findings will be a valuable first step in the relevant future research.
