One of the things that makes a good photograph is simplicity. Think about what you are trying to create - what is your goal, what are you trying to say, what is the subject - and then remove/minimize all other distractions, either in camera or in processing. Reduce, streamline, boil down. Make it as visually simple as possible to tell your story and meet your goals.
With this image shot in Milwaukee's Lake Park, I wanted to capture the intersection of the tracks in the snow of the rabbit and whatever the other animal was. I framed it in such a way as to show only the snow and the tracks. Any lower, I would have seen the trees in the background. If I had moved back a step, there would have been a park bench in the lower left. It's kind of a departure for me stylistically, but other than removing a few spots, a small bit of level adjustment, and making the image black and white, there is minimal processing. Keeping it simple!
