I really like this shot...I would crop a bit off the left side though (~1/2 of the white space) to make the people even less "centered"

I agree regarding cropping... although I would crop with the subject weighted toward the right of the frame as if they have been walking a long distance already. haha. But I LOVE IT. Crop how you want.

Thanks much. I actually tried the crop you suggested before posting the shot, then went back to the one above because I wanted to leave more of the faint trail behind the sled. Otherwise, it did work very well with the people way off to the left.

Here's the other version you suggested:

Can you post one with them cropped on the right with a really long trail like Alan suggested? I think that might look pretty cool.

Here you go. I think we've covered all the bases now. ;)

I think I like the crop with them on the left more. Maybe it's cause they're a little larger with respect to the white space on the right cropped one? I don't know. :D

Of the three, I still prefer the first one--showing distance at both ends.

I love the third cropped image for the balance of movement and the subtle track in their trail.

i like the first one because of the distance. It shows the solitude of the scene versus the other crops which make the viewer invade the scene and takes away from the solitude.

Another opinion - mine...
I like them all for the various reasons previously mentioned, but The One for me is the original. Looks like a still from a movie depicting isolation.
