Default Cropping ideas

I am trying to figure out how to crop this image better. What do I need to make it look presentable. I seem to not have a good cropping eye.

Way tighter on all four sides. Might ned some leveling, too. You'll probably lose image quality for RP, but the lighting was going to keep the shot off of here anyway.

I could see something along the lines of what I attached. I rotated it slightly CCW, about .35%. You need to save as, not save for web, and make sure you save it at as high quality as you can. I don't know what your original looks like. Not sure you will have the pixels to crop down to this
