Thread: How do u tell a pic has the X-Factor?

    How do u tell a pic has the X-Factor?

    Since we're on the topic of X-factor in another thread, let's start 1 here also...

    So what makes a photo worth a second or third look?

    Rule 1: As long as the subject is sad, got x-factor already.
    Rule 2: There must be an ultra-low frequency in the spatial domain, preferably wavelength is a little more or less than the width.


    Anymore?
    Just add on ...
    Rubbish comments also welcome...

    [16:07] <[n0d3]> Other methods that make use of time-dependent effects in light propagation are time-domain measurements, which use ultra short light pulses, and frequency-domain measurements using radio frequency (RF) modulated light.

    Yo AReality, did you know I always saw your avatar as a futuristic looking illustration of a face with the lizard head as the eye?

    I also don't know how to take pictures with X-factor... Think its a combination of being technically challenging, original, and relevant to the audience.

    Rule 3: Subject must not look at the camera directly

    Maybe my style is different or too simple, I just aim to achieve the "wah", "cool", "OMG", "WTF", "WTH" etc feeling the viewer. The first impression given to someone who have some appreciation for art

    X factor is ......

    If you are a newbie taking picture subject placed in the center, old bird will tells you should placed the subject off-center ....

    If you are a well known photographer and took subject placed in the center, they will say that's a nice image!!!

    If X factor exists, you don't even have to ask, don't even have to find it. You just know its there. That's X factor.

    Time to be serious before I sleep...............

    I don't like the word "X-factor" at all.

    I think an image is great when it impacts on the mind and heart. An image I return to again and again. An image that I like to bring to show others again and again. An image that says a great deal about the subject in a fresh manner. An image that tells a story...

    Others can add.........

    Good night!
