What's a concept?

Each photo in DT should have a concept. O.K. But: What is a "good" concept?

Since I started to download photos to DT I asked myself: "What's the concept of this photo?"

My last accepted photo (the only one for which I was quite sure that it will be accepted) has the salami tactic principle as concept. It was inspired by a short protest a few month ago in the company I'm working for against the step-by-step reduction of the workforce. To symbolize the company's tactic we did cut a big salami into small slices and everybody got such a slice to eat. During this time I didn't know about DT and I even didn't have a good digital camera. Otherwise I would have made photos of this protest and downloaded them to the editorial area.

Of course the original salami was much more impressive as this little one of my photo, but the idea is the same.

Just like luissantos84 said "Concept is everything". The question for me is "How can I convert to concept to a photo?".
Usually the converting of concept can be done openly and not so openly.

Here is a sample for concept "censorship" https://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photos-censored-image13141853

Like they say a photo worth 1000 words, but some they only make sense after telling the story! There is always a concept behind what we photograph or illustrate. The best concept is what the market of microstocks demand. Nice concept btw!

A good concept is the thing , what you make a designer think of it.

Take an apple.

It might be just a good apple photo and even it might be alone just the thing what a designer needs.

But if you put an apple on a laptop that might be something for an Online fitness consultancy services or maybe indicates a B2B software for apple producers , or something like that...
