The old "that depends" answer. In fact, this topic and these examples aren't about cropping at all -- but about composition. Your longer shot is very conventional, well framed, and conveys a certain building. I can see it hanging on the architect's office wall. The closeup is far different and much more intriguing in that it conveys the stark reality of all modern buildings. The closeup features unexpected rough texture and evidence of brute strength as well as a pleasing arrangement of elements, especially the negative triangular space in the center. I can see it hanging on anyone's wall who appreciates fine contemporary images. Well done.

I don't see why you'd want to crop it at all, it feels just right to me.

Looks like it is standing up to the earth quake pretty well as is.

especially the negative triangular space in the center.

That was the master or the missing link for me -- But maybe that stark triangle = ties everything to all the geometry ??

You've got a much higher success rate than most of the rest of us have.

I think its the tripod /non zoom / only 12 exposure thing ...  really makes you work.  It was also approached as work - not just a fun art :-)
