Sometimes the stars align and the objects with which you are presented in your view finder are perfect for the camera’s native 3:2 aspect ratio. This shot is one of those times. The normal reasons we crop, to strengthen composition, remove distractions, fit the matting or framing are all unnecessary here. Careful in-camera framing and the appropriate subject means we have all our pixels intact.
Sometimes (not often) the best crop is choosing not to crop.
