I was wondering do you guys still analyze the pictures that you see in non photo specific magazine.
Yes very much so although I tend to avoid paying too much attention to front covers as these are either heavily montaged or *photoshopped* to death it's difficult to make out what the original must have looked like. Most press photographs I also pay little attention to as most are, for obvious reasons, opportunist shots where the capture takes priority over quality. Of the images that I do view I analyse (to use your expression) composition and lighting, both trying to understand and possibly learn something from them - like the wolf jumping over a gate for example.
