To make a nice picture you need imagination and skills. Idea means everything at the end, Idea is the key. It can be immediate or the result of many trials and/or many ideas combined together. Then the right camera and the proper settings. Years ago it would have been impossible to still the water, as I do. Only recently cameras enabled it. I would like to stress this aspect as, in my opinion, it opens a new world to photography. Actual cameras represent a kind of additional eye, enabling to shoot subjects which the eye cannot see, thus definitely opening amazing new horizons to photography. Little step after little step, luck in between and perseverance and here we are.
