    Here's a bigger version:

    all sizes here


    I linked to this in Fight Club a week or two ago, but for those of you that don't play or watch it - here you go.

    It's not the greatest at 100%...but I can deal with it. I think a lot of it is from the high contrast between the needles and the black background.

    I'd crop out all the useless dead space up top.

    I think I would crop some of the empty space--maybe about 60% of it.

    See, you're not a dick and you get feedback. Funny how that works ;)

    I actually added all the dead space. The original composition is probably not far from how you're saying to crop it. I added canvas to make it square.

    This is the original shot:

    I kinda prefer it square, but I like them both.

    I like the original better. Is your original post from 2009 or is that some quirk of the interface change over?

    My feeling is that the first image is good; i think the dominating dark space is crucial to this sort of image( i don't feel it as negative); that in a way saved the image from a division mid-way as in the second post
