Looking at Photographs

First of all, look at them under good conditions. That means good light or a properly calibrated monitor.

Things to look for: Timing, Composition, Lighting, Colour, Depth of Field, Shutter Speed, Contrast, Tonal Range, ... and more.

Timing

Timing has a unique place in photography and almost unique among the visual arts.
