Composition

A technically perfect photograph can turn out to be a boring, uninteresting image.  That is not to say the image should be flawed to be great.  But, even flawed images can be intriguing and cause the observer to stop and think.  A truly great photo will invoke several different emotions and tell a story as the eyes wander in and out of each level in the photograph.

Every single photo I have ever taken is flawed in some aspect.  The key to improving is learning from those flaws and making changes in future situations that will hopefully result in a better photo.  I will often return to a site a dozen times or more to try and capture an image I am happy with, and still not succeed.  Sometimes, the session produces images I think are better than the previous session, and other times, it seems like a wasted trip.  In reality, even failed sessions are productive, as I learn some techniques that do not work.
