Photos are good when they contain what’s needed, and no more. Often, that means they are simple.
This was outside my front door an hour ago:
Nice and simple. But I can make it simpler.

Since I do not think the stuff I removed was essential to the photo, the simpler ones are better for me. I say “for me”, because after all, it IS art, and you cannot argue over art. (Doesn’t stop people though.)
Now Google the most expensive photo ever sold. $4m. Look and tell me what you think.
