Hi Catherine,
"Precision" and “accuracy” would be the most valuable qualities photos need to have on such a website because imagination and fantasy are better suited on treklens.
This photo shows us the first two qualities, but I can also see a great deal of respect for composition.
What I see is a very simple, clear and accurate subject in the foreground with a very nice as simple background; just the way it should be.
