Default This may be a lost cause - thoughts?

This may get bad angle in the end; for now it got two bad croppings in a row. There's room to add on every side. Suggestions?

I would say you need a little more on the bottom and and a little less on the right

Michael, I would think it could get "foreground clutter" in the end too. I know you've had some get in with a marginal amount of clutter in the past that others might not but in this case it really hurts the shot as it really stands out besides this shot being too tight and "in your face". The screeners used to not like the clutter at all and I try to avoid taking shots with that in mind if I want to submit here. Something to keep in mind.

Try a vertical crop, that's the only hope...

Dead winter tree on the right adds nothing to the shot. I still think it might get dinged because of lack of space on the bottom. It's a little too "in your face" for my tastes

I like the shot but probably wouldve worked better as a vertical

Vertical ends up being too tight. I tried a later frame, but same problem. This will have to remain a flickr shot.

It's not too tight so much as in every version the action is strongly weighted to the left.
