trying to understand a good photo..

Hi,

i like taking pictures, love retouching even more.

I think i managed to get some good photos, i like them that is.

( www.bartvandoornik.nl  )

But what i realize is that i really don't understand what a good picture is. There are a lot of award winning photos, famous photographers . But why do they stand out the rest of all the pictures taken. What makes a picture worth getting an award?

Its the same as going to a museum and not ' getting' the art hanging on the walls. Some look great and some look , well, in my eyes, no so great.

so i hope someone can enlighten me, teach me a few things about the big photos and photographers.

I feel like i am missing some insight to become a good photographer..

thanks

Bart van Doornik
