Blues --- A new painting

I have been working on a new painting for several days/nights--in whatever spare time I have to paint. It is a full sheet of watercolor paper, (22 by 30 inches in case you didn't know)but I am thinking that a crop could improve the painting. I would love some opinions.
You can click on them to see them on the Flickr site.
Here is the full sheet (there is a slight glare on the upper right)
Blues-in the Night

and this is the crop I am considering

Alternative Blues

So...let the opinions roll. Should I leave it full sheet? Should I crop it? (Should I just paint over it altogether?)

I love the full sheet - there is something missing when you crop it in my opinion! I llke the dark on the left side to the light on the right side and you lose that when cropped!

It's Lovely!

This is a excellent painting either way, but I prefer the full sheet. It gives the painting depth. I have been painting professionally for many years and I’m always excited to see good work. Thanks for sharing.

Full sheet. The part you would crop it to loses its energy without the flatter areas around it (just my opinion).
