Default What makes a photography memorable

Got this link from RG,

http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-05-...ople-wide.html

I'd pretty much came to the same conclusion, when planning my own projects here in Jerusalem I was very aware that having a human element made an image far more popular though of course as many others know the same thing it's important to realise that it's far too easy to use this principle to fall into cliche.

Anyway would be interested in a discussion on this...

Ben,

Think about your Jerusalem pictures. Some perfect architectural compositions can be appreciated immediately but seeing a person with some human gesture or motion makes the picture call us back to it.

That's why I've enjoyed your thread on Yemin Moshe so much!
