What makes a good image? (for me) Part 3

Alright…how to achieve perfection. The first step is to never be satisfied and always be critical. Its a bit of an oxymoron. If you can never be satisfied, how can it be perfect? But I know that if I step back and congratulate myself, I’m in deep shit.

So. In a nutshell, to achieve perfection, it has to, not be perfect. That makes absolute sense.

What makes an image worthy to be labeled perfect?
All the elements discussed early, plus all the little things. What are the little things?
One of the little things that I find is very important but I usually forget about, is how elements in the image leads the eye. This is something that took me a long time to learn and something that I still do not pay enough to. The subject is the hero of the shot and everything else is there to compliment it. All the little things should be there to help the hero and they should harmonise and lead the viewer to enjoy it.

Very philosophical and I am wise beyond my years
