David Brower’s Sky Rule (of photography)

From an interview with Amory Lovins, who began as a photographer, and recounts how his first editor — David Brower — who pioneered the much-loved Sierra Club nature books, would edit photographers: 

"Everyone knows the sky is there. So don't show it unless it's doing something interesting, and then show a lot of it." 

Maybe something he learned from Ansel Adams
