Photographers who create great images are very careful and thoughtful about their compositions. Like the structure of a sentence, everything is placed in an organized fashion to facilitate the viewer through the image. Photographers will use lines, contrast, shapes, space, focus, and sometimes color to guide the viewer's eyes to where the photographer wants them to go.

A great painter never starts placing paint on canvas without the end in mind. A great pianist never just pushes keys hoping a great song will emerge. Great photographs are never happy accidents.

People will say that you need the right kind of Canon or Nikon DSLR, the right prime lenses, the right Photoshop and Lightroom, etc., in order to be successful. That is all nonsense. If you can craft great photographs, you can do so no matter the equipment. Yes, those things might make it somewhat easier to achieve you vision, but they're not required.
