Cropping is probably the simplest thing that you can do to make a picture look so much better. Cropping helps the composition. It puts the main item of interest into the rule of thirds. This photo of a sunset over Morecambe Bay was fine but I wanted to see how it would look by cropping tightly around the sun, making it a little more red, and increasing the contrast.

Just like the rule of thirds, once you have learnt about cropping then learn to break the rules.

Happy snapping
