Default Cropping advice needed

Not sure what to do.... don't want as much dead space to the left but I don't want to kill the composition any more. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Default Cropping advice

Greg:
Consider cropping from left, top & bottom (in roughly equal amounts) so that the proportions of the cropped photo are 2:3 (2 units vertical for every 3 horizontal; doesn't have to be exact). Beautiful shot, by the way!

Greg,

Neat shot, but there looks to be alot of noise in the dark areas (i.e. the trees) of the photo...

I like the shot! humm... cropping. well i would crop some off the bottom. really black and doesnt do anything for me. you could take a small sliver off the sky (top), but not too much. i really like the color it is and would hate to get rid of more of it. If its needed you could cut off a bit to the right edge, but you probably want to try for more of a 2:3 ratio. i dunno if railpics will accept it, but I love it and i think it turned out awesome. =D
