    I like the shot but I can't help but feel that the crop and/or composition could be better...:scratch:

    I fussed with the composition on this... ROT along the minor axis thirds line? Nah wasn't happy... 11x14 crop, didn't feel balanced... square crop didn't look right. Centered? Ugh that was horrible. I settled for the least-horrible ones I tried.

    I tried to think of something to suggest...but I just couldn't (hence the head scratch).

    Have you tried rotating the image and then cropping it?

    I tried rotating it. That's the way it felt the best. I think maybe a tighter crop might be the only real way to fix the odd composition issue.

    great shot . i like color balance. texture is perfect. but the crop throws it off a bit. but still doesnt matter if you ask me. the picture is just too good.
