Sometimes I cannot decide which version I think is the stronger of images that I am working on (like the above). In working this image, I thought I was finished when I got to the cropped version. I let this image age for several weeks, and I thought that I was ready to print it. Just for fun, I looked at it again without the crop, and I got to wondering if the splash of brown in the lower right corner added something to the overall balance of form and color.
