    To OP - it's up to you how you want to crop it. Make as few rules as you can about photography - the important part is always the picture, and you should never disregard any tool to make it the best picture you can.
    While it's admirable, and recommended, to try to get everything right in camera, sometimes we see things differently a while down the road. Explore the potential in each negative - to completely disregard cropping is to limit your possibilities.

    I generally print 7.5" square on 8x10 paper (or about 14" square on 16x20 paper). To me the composition dictates the shape of the final print or the amount of cropping done. If I wanted rectangular, I'd probably have shot with a different camera, although I know I can make nice crops with a tlr, I'm usually thinking about how to make a square shaped composition.
