Light, Color and Gesture

I was recently watching an on-line video of "A Day With Jay Maisel". He is a fantastic photographer, and an even better teacher. One of the things he said (there were many great quotes) was that if a photo doesn't have either light, color or gesture, then it is really not a photograph worth taking. I think about that all the time when I am out with my camera.

No color in this photo, but the light was nice...Gesture? Ha...I guess that is up to the viewer to figure out...what do you think?

Hmmm... "gesture"? Gotta think about that one a bit more. Nice pic, though?

You've pulled out lots of depth with the lighting - it's fantastic!
