I'd say take some off the bottom, just above the shadow. That's close to being a nitpick though.

I'd crop it in a 3:2 aspect ratio and remove more from the top:

Not big on the foreground clutter when it is a few weeds but........... maybe hit the wrong button for rejection?

i suggest cropping out water and good chunk of the ice. that cliff is fantastic and deserves to be seen in more detail. can use that gap between the big and small trailer for cropping point. I'm sure it will get in if you remove some amount of the foreground/get a diff screener.

I didn't think of this before but having that water in the pic does make the ice read as ice. When it's cropped out, it isn't clearly ice in the river, although if you see the doc and read the desc. it's clear.

That was my thought - but to leave just a bit of the shadow as I think (like you obviously did) that it adds to the scene.

I'd have also brought some detail back to those dark shadowed trucks. Maybe a little shadows and highlight filter and the boost the midrange to you don't loose our contrast (in the trucks).

I didn't realize that was actually water the first time I looked at it. Lol.
