Observing a technique

Hi all,

When an technique is demostated in class, what points do you look at when you observe?

I'm fairly new to Aikido and pretty much starting over after returning from an injury. I see an technique and think I "got" it, then try to do it and ... nothing. Maybe get as far as grabbing the wrist :

I figure as I get some technique down well, I'll be able to compare/contrast to them. In the mean time, what do observe in watching a technique demonstation?
