    Not sure on the composition of this shot! Would it look better with the foreground cropped?

    Great pic - for my money, yes it would improve from cropping some of the foreground out, at least to get rid of the green (foliage I assume).

    I would crop it too. Maybe so the spacing is equal on the top and bottom of the hippo. Great shot though!

    I'm odd then because I think the original one is great as it is - gives more depth.

    i agree on the more depth, but i think only if the green stuff could be cloned out. its kind of distracting.

    Haha I like it! I think I would have liked to see the hippos (right??) on the bottom 3rd, but I like the shot.

    Mazz, I can see the several places where cloning took place.
    Try using the smudge tool to make it less noticable. (smear the obvious repeated vertical lines)

    I couldn't find the smudge tool so I re-cloned some of the areas. x
