    I took this over the weekend and have been playing around with it trying to figure out the best way to crop it. I was trying to remove the black areas at the top and bottom but I still come back to the original. Any ideas?

    Perspective is off. That may be one of the things throwing you off...

    Agree to make it a bit more simple

    The orange on both sides is distracting.

    Shoot it several ways till you get what looks just right to you

    Rick, as a start, you might clone out the top black and the orange on the sides -- that simplifies it somewhat. However, it also makes it too "arranged" (centered with no depth). I agree that a different arrangement and perspective might help. Follow Stephen and Gale's advice -- keep it simple;walk around it; and look at different arrangements and angles until that right combination grabs you.

    Stephen, Gale and Bob, thank you very much for your input and advice.

    I think you all hit it on the head. It's too busy. I'll have to try and reshoot it with fewer vases in frame. I did try to crop out the two orange vases, but that also removed small portions of the tall red and blue vases. Never thought of cloning them out. Pretty obvious I'm new to PS.

    Thanks again to all of you for your advice.
