There are photos that take the breath right out of you for a moment -- and every moment you look at it again thereafter -- either because you see someone you know in this person inside yourself -- or you're in love: with them, what they do, or the music they make. Because the composition of their bodies and their surroundings is so beautiful, loud, and clear in your head, it sings to you.
Those are the good ones.
They don't have to be great photographs by the art world's standards but by the vision of God's beauty behind your own eyes. The ones that make you remember you have to breathe in His air again to keep living for these things you love.
