If you show me an image I think: Compositon, Technique, Balance, Mass, Lights, Darks etc. and when I show the same images to a non-photographers they think: Who, What, Where and sometimes When.

But before all of that isn't there a first impression. Don't you almost instantly like or not like the photo?

When you see a member of the opposite sex walking down the street you immediately decide if they are attractive... Much more is needed before you decide to marry them, but there is that first impression.

As a photographer, I think, why ruin a great photograph by sticking two faces in the middle, I know I whas there... I took it !

I agree, but there is value to showing your friends that you were actually there and didn't send them a photo you downloaded off the web somewhere.
