Re: August. Hollyhocks
Ah, good exposure of a pure white object. The rain drops add a lot of interest to this floral. I think this would benefit from a square format. Crop in so that you remove a lot of the green from the bottom and some from the right and maybe a wee bit off the top. Shoot for a square crop though. I don't think the leaves on the bottom or right add any important elements to the composition. So cropping in will remove them leaving a nice squared fill-the -frame effect. Your petal edges will be about as close to the edge of the frame as they currently are on the left.
I think doing the crop will bring more attention to the flower. Remember that this is just MY ideas and it doesn't necessarily mean the right idea.
