    : ???????????????

    Good composition, technically correct, subject matter of interest to the
    viewer. Beyond that it becomes a troll's question, and most of the regulars in
    this group will ignore it or react with derision. If you have something ro say
    about photographic merit, say it; and if you've said something useful or
    thought-provoking, people may engage you in a discussion. Otherwise, go away
    or lurk here until someone opens a discussion to which you're prepared to

    I disagree completely. It's more like


    You have no sense of composition.

    Also, my version is cropped effectively.

    Thank you for your quick and informative reply.

    Would you mind providing examples of photos you consider to display
    the qualities you mentioned?

    Thank you.

    I suggest that if you want to see examples of photographs which meet
    what many here would describe, or define as good, you might let us know
    what it is you are trying to achieve, and what type of photography
    meets your interest.
    Consider, that many of the folks in these photo groups have
    photographic interests ranging from landscapes, wildlife, portraits,
    action sports, street/candid, macro photography, some engage in
    artistic interpretations. Many of the pros specialize in studio work
    and wedding photography. Each of those have different criteria within
    the basic guidelines for composition and subject matter as to what
    constitutes excellent work.

    So, name your poison, you might have noticed we have a gross inability
    to read your mind.

    Sure , there are all kinds of rules and opinions...
    but if you think it's a good photo, then it's a good photo.

  11. People want to look at it again and again, possibly getting
    very close to see fine details.
