Dear LaTeX users,

I have used the following commands to place a figure given in .pdf format
(figure.pdf).

\usepackage{graphicx} % (in the preamble)
.
.
\begin{document}
.
.
\begin{figure}[ht]
\includegraphics[width=6cm, height=5cm]{figure.pdf}
\centering \caption{....} \label{...}
\end{figure}
.
.
\end{document}

And compiled this file using the command 'pdflatex'. Eventhough the figure
gets placed, there is lot of blank space left surrounding the figure;
particularly, between the lower end of the figure and the caption, and
above the figure.
