    Great Shot........What's your true WORTH for a photo you ask?, well, as an Award Winning Photographer:
    Here's a simple but Extremely useful test for all you Flickr Photogs
    to determine whether your shots are COMMERCIALLY VIABLE :-)
    Take an unframed / framed photo and put it on the street for sale,
    pick a few random passersby to ask how much they would pay for it,
    specially, if their answer is "I don't need to buy a photo"...........
    if you're satisfied with whatever they ARE willing to pay for it
    regardless........then THAT's your TRUE WORTH for that photo!.
    As far as what MAKES a Great photo?, a few things in this ---> Order: Composition / Content / Lighting / Focus , Symmetry (watch out for SPOILERS like jagged edges, off frame Subjects / Objects sticking in the frame and distractions such as a piece of crumpled paper in what otherwise amounted to be a calm and peaceful scene.
    Wider fields and greater Depth, Colors / Tone / White Balance
    and Shades.
    Highlights should not be washed out and Shadows should not be overcast! (unless of course the intent is such) to find the right BALANCE between the two is true GENIUS!.
    Either, number of objects has to be as many as possible in a
    frame or, even if it is just ONE object, you have to have as many
    sub objects as possible, for instance you could shoot a landscape
    with lots of trees clouds and fields with shades of sunlight and a
    barnyard in the distance with maybe a windmill at sunset,
    that gives you enough objects, OR JUST have a tree in a photo
    but if the tree shows finer details in leaves and branches and
    ribs and veins, you've got yourself a great photo as well. Another good example would be, Sand, which by itself is just that, SAND!, but if the photo also shows the fine details in hundreds and thousands of sand grains taken at right angles with proper lighting and the right focus, you end up getting a great shot!
    So, a compromise between many objects in a single frame OR just one object with attention to details....Last but not least is…. Sharpening, it’s an art to do this , (always zoom to 100% BEFORE sharpening) do not over or undersharpen the image, Unless the intent was such
    Always resize the image BEFORE sharpening. And Remember to take your shots from a spot most others can't get to, or time, most others are sleeping, after all there are Millions of people taking pictures of Statue of Liberty or Times Square why should anyone pay for or look at your pics? Unless of course it's RADICALLY different or taken from a 100 story building.......Hanging upside down, :-)
    Good Luck to ALL and…Happy Snapping!! :-)
