(Sorry if this is a stupid question, but i am really curious of what is a good photo)

Can anyone please tell me?

Thx

[**EDIT**]

I don't think there are any stipulations other than consensus.
You'll know a good one from the rest when you see it :)

Photography is an art and therefore is subjective. Every viewer will see your photo's in a different way. Depending on their field of experience, likes and dislikes, some will love what others hate.

With that being said, there are still things you can do to take better photos and improve your chances of having them be enjoyed by a wider audience.

I like the first photo, it's just sad that the camera phone can't take better picture in dark places like that. It causes grain like in that photo ...

Of the three my favourite is easily the first. Even with the grain created from the darkness in the room i still like this alot. It's got good composition as well as nice shadows created from the flash.

Normally i'd comment on the framing being cut a bit short when somebody hasn't taken everything in the shot like in your case the girl on the right has a bit of her elbow missing. You have actually done the best you could and rather than photograph the guy on the left complete or the girl on the right you've decided to crop them both. It's not your fault for the camera being like that, so you did good in this photo.

As a set it's nothing spectacular, but certainly of the three i really like the first one. The second and third (in particular) are not really doing anything for me. The second could have been okay if taken a bit differently, but these types of shots don't really do much for me unless there is something interesting to look at that i'm not seeing in it at the mo.

I like the second one as well. Great use of geometric shapes and positioning of the lines.

I feel quite embarrassed that with h/p like yours, you can take nice pics, even nicer than mine, some.

Good job.

^ Oh, i seen some of your photos actually, it's quite nice to me... especially for the woman one (the one with the jap titles)

And i just happen to like taking human photos instead of landscape, and coincidentally my friends all likes to take photos (and some even imagine themselves as a model, lol), so i am just being lucky to take those pictures ^.^
