Objectively critiquing images: a primer

There are 4 key things to look for in every image. Light, subject, composition, and the idea. All four of these key things make up the core element of a photograph. Every picture needs light. With no light you get no picture. Timing is also a big part in taking a picture. If the timing is off then the picture won't be as clear or won't convey the same idea. Next, if you took the subject away from the picture what would it be? The subject makes up most all photos so if you took the subject away the picture wouldn't be the same. Lastly, the idea makes the picture what it is. Without and idea you wouldn't have a picture. The photographer has to have an idea about the picture so he/she can strive to achieve the goal of the idea. Once they do that, it makes the picture really good and thats how we get so good of pictures online from all of these different photographers, because they start with an idea and they do whatever they can to get that idea conquered.
