I'm going to be odd-man out. Here's what I see:The crop of the guy drinking a beer makes a dull photo much better as it draws attention and more importantly it eliminates distractions
Original version; there's a guy drinking beer. He's at an outdoor eatery that has fish tacos, an oyster bar, and a smokehouse. There's a family sitting behind him and the man is eating what I would assume is a fish taco. This man appears to be either having a conversation with beer guy, or perhaps calling him out based on his hand gesture. There are others nearby at another table and a couple eating inside. I want to see more of what's there, and I think this area is a hub of activity.
Cropped version; A guy drinking beer. Yes, a good part of what I mentioned above still exists, but I see a guy drinking beer because he dominates the frame. My eye doesn't wander like it did in the other photo.
If you're looking for more sustained interest, the original is the better of the two.
