Normally, I would crop out extraneous stuff that takes focus away from the subject. When I opened this photo to edit it, I noticed the red bucket (I didn't remember it from the shoot). For some reason, I kind of like it. I think it complements the red in the decorations to the left. And, they really do use a lot of red in China.
What do you all think? Crop the bucket or not? Any other tips are welcome, too. Thanks!
