    Ahmult - are you asking for crits on those photos or are you wishing to discuss what makes a good photo?

    Ok, when I look at a pict, what should I consider whether it is shot well or not? Is it about the object itself? Can the object give u the clear topics? Is the object clear? Is the color of the photo suiting the topics.....
    Like those 2 images, do you think they are great shot? If so, how can we define it?

    Wrong post wont happen next time

    A good pic is only in the eyes of the beholder. What is an awesome photo to you, may be not so good to me.

    Looks to me like what you are asking here is 'what makes a good picture?'
    That's a tricky, and rather philosophical, question that could start a very long debate.
    You could try asking it in the Discussion Forum where we like to chew over those sorts of questions.

    From My perspective a photo must either be inspiring / reveal a sence of bellonging / give you a happy or sad feeling / the viewer must feel connected with the feeling or message been displayed , however it is interpreted. One thing it must not do , is leave you with questions around "what or where is the subject".This happens when a picture is cluttered."KEEP IT SIMPLE" If you can remove any item without it affecting the picture, then it shouldent be there !

    Well, for one, the first picture has a distracting hot spot on the top left. It;s a good picture. I love the orange lightning, but the hot spot bothers me :(

    There's no defintion of a good picture, like said above it's subjective and to each his own etc. Possibly a good picture is where every techinal thing is put ito consideration or used, or used properly I should say..this is my opinion/suggestion.

    The second one...eehh..I'm tored of seeing simple landscapes. The coliurs are nice though! :)

    I have a few 'sorting" definitions of my photos.. junk, keeper, good, and print it. I only print a shot if it is outstanding.. and this category is rarely filled.

    i print about 4 out of every 1000 shots.

    sorry for the simple analogy, but this works for me. What is good, or great is in the eyes of the beholder. As we move along and improve in our own photography skills, the levels are always changing!
