    I'd crop it. It's pretty distracting.

    yeah anything foreground that is out of focus and not consistent with the main colors of the comp should go.

    Why not try a few crops and post them up, personally i think a crop on the middle 1/3rd of the pic could be good.

    I looked at that when it was suggested to crop the middle one third but i like the weeds that are on the left of the shot and also some noise issues are starting at that size ,i want to make a 8x10 print..
