Hello all,
Looking to see if there is a better crop to this pic. Also any other suggestions welcome.
thanks.

I agree. It's almost like the items in the foreground are supposed to be the subject and you just happened to catch the bridge in the background.


Everyday is a great day when you wake up looking at the green side of the grass!

My eyes are confused with the foreground. I would remove it. Or, if possible, shoot the bridge through the pipe on the left.

Agree with the above...foreground is too busy. If you can reshoot, go forward and to the right by where the ropes are attached to the pier. Get a clean foreground. If not then crop out all the major distractions.

thanks for the comments, all!
That crop looks good, Qbx.

I kinda liked the snow and the anchorage , hence am confused by the cropping. Thanks for your views!

Guess I am alone but I took the reverse approach - I cropped off a bit of the sky, straightened the building on left and pumped up the exposure in the foreground, sharpened the bottom only to bring out the nice textures.

If this is nearby, I would revisit for sure, now you know what you want to frame:D

Spike- thanks for that version. Liked it.

Thanks all for the comments. I might go there again to try new angles.

Looks much better crop, except for the curved pipping on the left side. :)

Yeah a bit cluttered and not the most awesome subject matter ever.
