lk2fireone (196) All of the above factors have important weight in the value or eroticism or impact of a photograph. If you are a member of met-art, there are a huge number of photographers who have submitted their work to the site. They have used a large number of attractive models. But taking a picture is more than just snapping the button/knob/whatever on the camera. You want to capture an image, create an effect or impression, or do something that will have some value. A pretty model helps, but there's a lot more to a photograph than just the model, or even the model plus her makeup and costume and setting. There are entire books written on photography, college courses taught, etc. Some people are craftsmen or artists, others are hacks. The photography doesn't get much better than met-art, mplstudios, or femjoy (though I wish they would use more makeup on the models at femjoy).
Separately, but related, there is a creative element in photography, as well. A photograph of a lovely model can be boring or erotic. Part of this is in the mind of the viewer, but the photographer can create a picture that has meaning/impact/eroticism/whatever.

Monahan (44) As one who prefers video over photos, my opinion is not as important as that of others who prefer photos.

For me an outstanding photo is one with no, or very little, airbrushing, photoshopping, or whatever and one where the model and the pose both produce a visual "wow" factor.

Normally that is accomplished through a combination of the identified factors but the one that rules, so to speak, is clarity.

GCode (101) All the technical aspects of photography weigh heavily on how well a photo comes out for the public. However, I think the actual model within the captured image and her doing the correct erotic pose weighs the highest if an image is overall quality. A well lit shot with great image clarity is all fine and dandy but if the model is bent over with her legs on her ass in an ass shot, then the image has gone to waste. So, of course all these aspects need to come together for an overall decent image but the model and the pose comes first for an excellent captured image.

My 2 cents...

PinkPanther (46) I'm a simple man - turn me on and I'm happy. There are photographers that obectively do good quality work that don't turn me on all that much, such as Dean Capture, the Twisty's guy. His stuff tends to be quite repetitive and it's got the predictable glamour thing and gets further removed from any real heat with the way the pics are finished - but then he'll turn in a set like the recent posting of Michelle Maylene and it's brilliant and mega-hot.

Phil Flash is a photographer I really like - mainly he's done tease stuff, starting with models such as Tiffany Teen. Technically, I'm sure he's nowhere close to a great photographer. You know what? I don't care. He gets great hot pics with florid colors and conveys and intimacy and immmediacy that's hot as hell.

Similarly, Alex of ALS Scan - I'm sure there are lots of technical things one could criticize about his pics. They're like blunt objects rather than anything all that artistic - where the girls are hurled into your face full-force. Me, I like it.

Among the better technical photographers, there are a number at Met Art that are doing fine work - the heat varies depending on the lushnessof the colors and crispness of the style, which is important to me, as well as the models, but there's no denying that they're showcasing a lot of fine work at that site.

Denner (235) Drooler puts up five ways to choose. Good pol and it's pretty hard to name one favorite here.
Primarily I go for image clarity - but I think all five are importend...
So, oh yes - in general: All above....

Drooler (220) REPLY TO #7 - Denner :

Somehow reading your reply got me thinking that the question would have been better posed as this: "If all but one of the following in a photoset were lacking to your tastes, which would make the most difference to you?"

I don't know if I could have gone that long with the question, but that would have given in more "focus."

For me, it's the model poses.

dracken (246) Image clarity and poses are some of the most important for me. I wish I could choose both :P

A pose can make all the difference in the world and a fuzzy image is just no fun. I don't care about color so much though, B&W sometimes looks awesome.
