Nice shot and timing.
In my opinion remove the left side half cut tree and left of it and crop with 5:4 ratio to include the bottom of right side tree.
Something like below but with bottom of right tree.

Another crop to consider is the one attached where I got rid of the right tree. It's a nice scene and eventually you'll get a crop that the RP guys will like better.

I'm going to split the difference with you two. I kind of like using the pole on the left as a framing element as well as having the sidewalk edge come out from the bottom left corner. It just creates better symmetry for my eyes.

And when are you guys going to learn how to properly attach images?

Sir
As per your pin theory I was able to attach one image in line with message last time but it didn't work today. Was it because of the image size? Please explain the procedure of attaching image with message again. Thanks in advance.

I like Jim's version, too! And I'm sticking with the old school way of attaching images for now.

After you've uploaded an image in the Manage Attachments section, close that window. Then, when you return to the post window, click on the paper clip icon. You will see the attachment in the drop down window. Click on that, and you will see [ATTACH ]xxxxx[/ATTACH ] appear in the window. That is now your image.

Come on, Joe, it's really simple, and it saves the viewer a step since it eliminates having to click on the link to view the attachment in a separate window.

Sweet. Very glad it got in. But I'm at least taking 25% credit for suggesting you crop out the right tree!



Seriously, it's a neat shot!
