Exposure varies between these two photos. The one on the left has a good exposure because it shows detail, where as the photo on the right has a glare and not a lot of thought was put into framing the picture.

Depth Of Field is important when shooting, depending on what you are going for. You want a good shallow depth if you are doing detail and I deep depth of field if you are sooting a bigger image. The one on the right has such a shallow depth of field that it blurred out the whole flower, taking away from the overall image. The one on the left has a deep depth of field, showing all the detail of the flower.

Composition is important because it helps the image as a whole to look cohesive. The image on the left follows the rule of thirds and the image on right is poorly composed and the subject is blocked by other things in the photo.

Color (Mood) is a feeling you get from looking at a picture. The photo on the left has very vibrant colors, giving you a sense of happiness or uplifting mood. Where the photo on the right has duller colors giving it a gloomy feeling.

Photo Credits: (left) Coloring Pages, Flickr, key words are coloring, pages, Colors, outdoor. (Right) Nell, Flickr, and key words are Color and monochrome.

Orientation is important when framing a photo. The photo on the left is an example of bad orientation because the building is partly cropped out of the photo, but is not cropped close enough to see detail. The photo on the right has a strong composition because you are able to see enough buildings to give an idea of where it was taken. Also none of the buildings are partly cropped out of the frame.
