12 Elements of a Powerful Image
12 ELEMENTS (from PPA guidelines) of a great image:
IMPACT - the viewer's initial response. Best is something unexpected!
TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE - image quality should be correct exposure, focus and resolution. Not going overboard in post processing.
CREATIVITY -  original and fresh way of conveying an idea, message or thought.
STYLE - either a specific genre or the specific style of the artist
COMPOSITION - holds the viewers' attention and prompts the viewer to look where the creator intended.
PRESENTATION - look of the image either digital or physical should support and enhance the image, not distract.
COLOR HARMONY - use tones to enhance emotional appeal.
CENTER OF INTEREST - where the viewers eye should fall.
LIGHTING - good use and control of light to enhance an image.
SUBJECT MATTER - appropriate to the story being told.
TECHNIQUE - the approach used to create the image.
STORYTELLING - the ability to provoke the viewers imagination.
