Here is another example of how simplicity can turn a simple snapshot into a great photo. This beautiful picture of two young girls riding their horses along a wet sandy California beach, like many other beautiful photos, has no distractions. The fog helps subdue the background and the reflection of the horses and their riders in the sand adds artistic expression to this otherwise simple photo. The simplicity of the photo results in the subjects and the interesting reflections becoming a work of art. If the same subjects where against a busy and cluttered background this picture would just be another snapshot.
