Crop it?

One of the considerations in presenting an image and this is part of the PP, is whether an image should be cropped or not. In this example, these flowers are clearly the subject of the shot. As such you might consider this image as having unnecessary background. However the background in this shot contributes to the overall appeal of the image in my opinion. It reminds meal of a meal served on a beautiful plate that adds to the visual appeal. Too much cropping and the image can't breathe. Too little and the image floats around.
