If you ask 5 different photographers about how to crop you will most likely get 5 different opinions. What's important and is part of what can make your work different from other is the way you crop (or compose) because there is no one right or wrong way just what is right for you and the particular situation.

He did ask for others opinions on this image. What he chooses to do in the end is his choice

Exactly and I gave my advice and clear reason why I feel that way.

I appreciate all opinions. I am a hobby photographer and very new at it so I will take all the feedback I can get. I take pictures of stuff I find interesting and photos of sports (mostly track and cross country because that is what my daughter does). Thanks to anyone who cares to opine....

Colour version, a little more time spent on it. Agree with Dave adding some space.

The solid background does give it a different "feel"

Duckster agree, but now I feel its "devoid of emotion" and too blank/plain.

Could always mask in an interesting background over the top, but could keep doing this sort of thing till the cows come home!  :p

Yes, sometimes the varied backgrounds at sports venues give it the “feel” while not being as photographically “perfect”

The problem with doing major alterations like that with sports is; why not then move the jumper higher in the frame to make it look like she is jumping higher or add someone else in the frame, etc? I think things like sports or PJ shouldn't be alter. But in my opinion, what is most important, is how well the entire original image works visually as I explained in post #4 on pg 1 of this thread.
