|How does one develop the instinct of knowing when to press the shutter release button?
The more photographs you take the more you realize when a special moment is in front of you. As I said in the previous answer, things like this come natural to certain people with a good eye.
The more you photograph your chosen subject the easier this becomes. With architecture you need to develop the patience to wait maybe months or years for the best time for an image
In my line of Photography which is skateboarding, you pretty much have/had to be a skateboarder first, to photograph a skateboard trick it takes more than just composition and technical know how, you need to know when you're going to press that shutter button so the viewers can identify the trick without reading the caption first, this gives you the smallest window possible to capture the board at the right angle.
you just know
practice. Photography is all trial and error. The more pictures you take the better your pictures will get.
Same way you get to Carnegie Hall: Practice! Practice! Practice! (I know: it's an old joke)
I guess when seeing something you like.
I could not say. It is instinctive to me. Perhaps when you let go of your inhibitions and realize that if you shoot 100 shots, that maybe one will be the hero.
By pressing it often!
I'm pretty trigger-happy, so I'm not sure I would have the best answer for this. My philosophy is that you always miss 100% of what you don't take, so why not take as much as possible? I've had some unbelievable compositions that were completely unintentional and would not have happened if I hadn't been clicking away like a mad woman.
comes to a degree from experience
