    To crop or not to crop...

    Hi. Took this shot in Florida a few weeks ago but I'm on the fence about whether to crop it a little more or not. I could use some experienced eyes for some help with this.

    On the one hand the full shot tells the full story of these birds hanging around a fishing fleet. On the other you see a gaggle of birds all eyeing a bucket 'o fish.

    Thanks.

    Full:




    A little closer:

    Life is an infinite series of moments called..."now".
    My job is to capture them.

    I like the full res shot more. There's no need to cut the amazing details of this story.

    Full shot, no question. Cutting the feeder in half just doesn't work. The birds are "looking somewhere" and you've eliminated that w/ the crop.

    I say NO CROP. The whole scene is important and the central subject is a little too obvious when its cropped.
