Default Highway Sign Cropping

Good morning people!

How would you crop this one?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=999219917

I have a bit of space on the left and at the top, and quite a bit of space at the right and bottom.

Thanks!

I think you may be too close/wide. Any way you can back up a considerable distance and use a longer zoom to bring all the elements closer together?

Not really, I was standing on a big snow hill... You can't go for that shot in the summer at all!

Oh well. Back to shooting wedges

I really like it! One suggestion I would have, however, is to drop yourself down a bit so that the bottom of the sign separates from the top of the overpass in the background. Of course, that's not likely gonna get it on to RP...

What Jacques said.

Aside from that, the shot is confused, lots of distractions. It doesn't help that the near lanes are empty, It seems out of kilter. That cutoff box lower right doesn't help either. I would be curious to see what a vertical of the left side looks like.
