For instance, if you are creating a portrait with great lighting, rhythm, unity, and aerial perspective, then you are on your way to creating something complex and a professional piece of work. Disregard these techniques, perhaps use only one, and you risk the image looking like an academic study, exercise, or a simple sketch. Something to jot an idea down, but not the final product of a professional or master.
