    This an unedited image scanned by an online lab. Should it be cropped and if so, where? Before I have it printed. First roll of HD. I like it!

    IMHO, no cropping necessary... the flower (whatever it is :roll:) is positioned perfectly and the cropped leaf at the right gives the eye a nice guide into the pic. Well done...

    On one hand I'd say crop the leaf out of the left, but then on the other hand u'd need to crop out some top and that doesn't need to be done, so i'd say just leave it alone.

    I would definitely leave as-is. With cropping, I believe you will lose some of what makes this shot unique.

    Very pretty water lily! Leave it just like it is. It's very nice.

    Definitely like this shoot a lot, think I would try removing the leave in the top left corner, by using clone and painting over it

    I'd clone out the bright white spots in the middle of the water...but you're asking for crop?

    If you crop tight to the left stuff - then you're creating a nice picture of this flower that's been done before. If you leave this crop, you leave people wondering why you left SO much space in the middle - what if you compromised and moved the right side more onto the left and took out about 2/3 of the negative space in the middle in PS or PSP?
