A feature I tend to notice in photographs is contrasting pairs. I like them "in balance", whatever that means. Perhaps something like "of nearly equal visual interest" except that's not always true. Usually I see one of the pair first, and its presence is merely balanced by the other which I notice later. This is similar to the notion of "negative space" which is in its own way just as important as the subject, the positive space, but is mostly unnoticed.
