WHICH OF THE 3?

A fantastic photographer has been coaching me on shots. He is one of those “I picked up a hobby and there is no halfway” personalities.

Part of that is framing the shot. Here are 3 of the same shot at different crops. A cherry blossom on an old roof. I like 1 and 3. I just can’t decide which I like best? Although number 2 shows the roof top. In the end .. went with number 1.

Opinions appreciated on which way you would go?
