Sometimes having less in a photograph can make it stronger. There can be areas in an image, perhaps the sky, the foreground or another compositional element, that are better left out and sometimes the easiest way to do this is to crop the image.

If there isn’t any way you can crop the image, it may mean you need to re-shoot the image (if possible), choosing a different viewpoint or lens.
