This is probably a very controversial question when you take pictures and view photos. I think this photo is beautiful but others find it ugly? So what is the cause? I created this topic to raise some views of myself and at the same time to ask about your opinions and perspectives.
1. Visually beautiful
Many people believe that before achieving other factors such as content, emotions, a picture must first be visually beautiful. The vision here includes the elements:
- Layout, selection and arrangement of objects and objects in the image according to the visual effects standards scientifically.
- Beautiful light.
- Material in photos: characters, things, facts in photos. The selection of beautiful materials in photos also contributes to a beautiful picture.

2. Nice content
Beautiful is not enough, some photographers tend to take photos that focus on expressing more content to convey a message, a story, an interesting moment in life, than go Find a picture that is visually beautiful. However, if the picture meets both the visual and the content, it's great: D
3. Arousing viewers' emotions
There are photos that are not eye-catching, do not show anything but when viewed, it evokes a lot of personal feelings. It may be because the photographer has taken his own emotions into the image, overcoming the barriers of both form and content.
For me, I especially like photos that bring lots of emotions to watch. It evokes memories and experiences of one's own privacy, but not directly related to the picture but it has a special connection. That is the success of the photographer.
