I enjoy discussing photography, instead of cameras, for once, Roel.

However I didn't plan to discuss tastes, or even History of Art. So to me ducking's or CharlesTokyo, are boht legitimate.

It's the segmentation which surprised me:

Contrast / Gesture / Implication

Does it work for you? Can you teach it?

I don't often rationalize it like that.

What I most often just aim for (and I feel that is already a lot) is to show something that is meaningful or at least interesting (content aspect), and to show it in a way that is either pleasing to the eye or different from how we would look at that ordinarily (form aspect).

Good images are those where both aspects are present.

Leaving apart Colour Theory, which worries me considerably
