    Hmmm I think you're trying for too much in the picture. The image of the mascot on the couch is funny enough, but by bringing in the basketball hoop you are also bringing in a bunch of unused, and uninteresting, areas... I like the Photoshopped colors a lot more, nice and bright, but I think the crop should JUST be of the mascot...

    But, that's me. Ask 1000 photogs the correct crop and you'll get... well, a lot of different answers!

    Too much cropping going on in this forum IMO. Sure the mascot on the couch is sorta interesting by itself, but it's much more amusing in the context of an empty gymnasium, which is what the original implies. "Empty" space is not necessarily a bad thing. Maybe just take out some of the top of the backboard and the foremost part of the floor.

    I think you went too far with your colors and contrast in your edit, but only by a small tad. Your silver turned blue which bothers me the most.

    I'm flexable regarding cropping, generally I like a full shot as above , but the crop is a standalone shot as well.

    Good observation on the blue/sliver.....

    One more for no cropping....and backing off the color seems like a good call.....might take care of the blue/sliver issue.

    Thanks for the comments.:)

    for cropping.

    or for a different shot. why not crop out the bball goal, its in the foreground and out of focus, so the eye isn't drawn to it, the bottom of the frame has nothing going on as well.

    people crop for a reason: crops can improve a photo, and here i think it clearly improves it.

    I would crop from the left to this position, BUT keep the basketball net above in the photo. It contributes to the photo.
