Default Well, I tried!

I can't crop this one any further, as the IQ is already pushing the limits - it was a grab shot with my point-and-shoot. Thought you guys might get a kick out of it, though, so here it is for 7 days.

I'd prefer to see you lose some off the top and a smidge off the bottom while retaining the sides as is. I tried a 4x6 and liked it, then thought what the heck, they've been accepting a lot of my 3x5s lately so I tried this:

I like it even better, but others may not. It's a really neat shot regardless.

No, Saskatchewan. It's like putting Kansas and Nebraska together and adding a whole shitload more prairie!

Just for clarification, the area of Nebraska + Kansas = ~160,000 sq. mi.
Area of Saskatchewan is over 250,000 square miles.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys, but the photo is already quite heavily cropped from the original and I don't think I have the image quality to go any further.

Jacques, my suggested crops retain the full image width of the one you submitted, only reduced the vertical dimensions. Therefore they would in no way detract anything more from the image quality.
