Default Cropping Help

Apparently I'm 0 for 2 today. I know I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I thought I had all of the bases covered on this one.

All suggestions are welcome.

Light power shots can be difficult to compose. In this one the mass of your subject matter is horizontally centered. I'd try a closer crop with the power closer to the right such as this:

but it might not necessarily be what they're looking for.
