Thanks

What do you guys think about cropping the crop? Or do you like it as is?

So should I leave it as is? Is the darker background on the right distracting? Is what the fly is on distracting?

I would prefer the centre to the right side of the frame be cropped off.

The fly becomes the centre of attention with the greenish background

considering the original is already a crop, i dont think the 10mp sensor of the K200d can handle such a crop at ISO 400 and still look decent in my eyes sadly.

care to guess how I got the above picture to look the way it does?

To be honest, I like your original compositon.

Very often, macro images follow the same rule of composiiton, losing that visual spark that most of macro photographers are looking for these days.

I think it is better that you leave it as it is.

Personally I like your second crop - the first one had too much OOF area IMO.

Great effort though - macro is never easy!

I think the crop is to... "predictable." I feel like I have seen that shot a thousand times before, whereas the original is, well IMO original. Hope that made sense
