I like this image, but I am not sure about the amount of negative space I have left. Opinions? Thanks.

I think I would crop some off the top.

I think if the background was a more solid color and the subject was closer this wouldn't be too bad.

just a little bit, but it is a neat image! After a bit of cropping it will be rather lovely.

Leaving it in the same ratio, i would crop up from the bottom-right corner a bit. Not sure what the original looked like, but if it were my photo i'd still crop more

I don't think it's the crop but the background highlight.

Thanks for your comments. I do like the tighter crop better.

crop a few mm of the top so that the flower points to the corner; there are no white space issue.
