Cropping Help Needed

One of my on-going conundrums is cropping.

Often cropping comes down to a matter of taste. Cropping can dramatically change the balance, feel, and even the meaning of an image. Sure, sometimes it’s obvious, but sometimes it’s not.

And sometimes it probably doesn’t matter, but I just can’t make up my mind.

For example, here are two versions of the same shot from a graveyard in Tulum, Mexico.

Which one do you like best?

  1. I like the first photo, the second doesn’t focus in on the pink tomb in back as well. I don’t feel drawn into the image the same way as in the first shot.
