I take no offense at all and welcome the comments. If I had cropped the pic on the bottom so that it started at the level of the agaves, it would have been both accurate and probably less distracting as a composition.
Sometimes I fall into the narrative trap and something about the pumpkins caught my eye. The same thought of leaving them out occurred to me at the time. It seemed as though they were needed with the rest of the stuff at the bottom.
I can see how it would have worked as well to frame differently. The comments made that point valid.
