I'm an amature photographer, and I've reflected on what it takes to get some good photos. Well, here's what I've come up with:

1) Know the rules. I've provided a site here that seems to have some good info on basic rules. The rule of three is what I specifically pay attention to.

2) Take lots of photos. Sometimes a person has to take a ton of bad photos just to get one or two really good ones.

3) Don't be afraid to break the rules, and experiment. Sometimes amazing photos throw all the rules out the window. During your experimentation you'll get some lousy shots, but I think it's safe to say that happens to everyone.
