What would you suggest we say when we use some elements to balance or frame others? Would other terms be any more effective/less annoying?

It gets to a point where you have to get over petty annoyances and just take pictures.

I guess I would prefer people responded to photographs with more instinctual reactions. Suppose someone tells me one of my photographs has nice movement or balance or something about how some part of it leads the eye to another part etc. Leaves me pretty cold. Even if it is meant as a compliment I'd rather they just said the picture sucks.
