Steve McCurry's One-Minute Masterclass 'What Makes A Great Photograph'

Steve says it like it is as usual. For me great photography comes down to making images that change people's view of the world. This can range from a subtle increase in awareness, to altering someone's opinion, through to causing a change in behaviour.

The 7 steps on the journey for the viewer of a great photograph are:

seeing the imageexperiencing a sensationwhich turns into an emotionthat evokes a cognitive processleading to a shift in understandingand a change in attitudethat motivates the viewer to take action.
I'm not a psychologist or a philosopher. This is just my observation based on experience.
