Some of these tips can be applied in the field of photography but most can't.

What I consider to be the most important tip of all doesn't seem to be in that list, which is:

"The technical rendition of a photograph is subordinate to the message."

In other words, your photograph only needs to be of sufficient quality to communicate to your viewer. I wish I was given that tip when I first started.

#74. Leaving slight imperfections in your photo, such as skin blemishes and stray hairs, can help to ground it in reality - especially when other aspects of the photo are fantastical.

I like this one.

As a wildlife / nature photographer, it is important to make sure that the photos look real, and one of the best ways to ensure this is to keep bits of "messy" vegetation in the photos. . Even when there are blades of grass that aren't leaning the right direction, or tree leaves that are reflecting more light than the other tree leaves, it is usually best to include these elements in the final image, because they show the viewer what nature is really like.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I don't know about 17, I've had color photographs that were pretty much nothings turn into something interesting in black and white. I agree about getting it correct in camera as much as possible, lots of post processing does show up in the photo.
