    I like the tighter crop; it might not hurt to try and create the perspective distortion either.

    love the symmetry. will definitely take your suggestion!

    tirediron, what do you mean by perspective distortion?

    Because your camera wasn't quite level and square to the scene, some of the verticals aren't quite vertical and the horizontals aren't quite horizontal.

    The crop version can make the scene more focused on the main subject. Anyway very natural shot.

    good subject, well composed image. I find OK the sharpness and the tones of the subject, I'm less convinced by the background (that neither sharp nor bokeh I find so-so).
    all the best.

    the crop one looks better, that's why we need image editing, instead just a camera and shoot a round.
