Would you crop this?

After MONTHS of not picking up my camera, we went on vacation and I finally had some time to focus on photography. Boy, was I rusty! I must've shot over 500 photos in 4 days and only a handful turned out.

Anyhow, this is one I liked and would love to blow it up and frame it. My question is, should I crop it so there is less black on the bottom?

Thanks for your help!

I actually like how the photo is divided in thirds by the colors...1/3 black on the bottom, 1/3 medium orange in the middle, 1/3 bright orange on the top. But in the end, the size you want to blow it up to will dictate how you crop.

Amber has a good point ... but that aside, I'd still crop some of the black from the bottom.

that is one nice shot!

I agree with this. I think it looks great the way it is.

I see no need to crop unless it's needed for the size you want to print.

Absolutly BEAUTIFUL shot! Good to see you again!
