Default Another cropping help thread

I cropped horizontal and then vertical - neither worked for the screener. Any suggestions?
I know there is probably too much dead space in the middle, but the snow was too deep to go down for a lower perspective.

In both cases my first thought is to crop at the bottom and get rid of the branches/weeds/whatever. It is just too tall - I love tall, but it doesn't work for me here.

Thanks J. I was thinking about the rule of thirds and trying to put the skaters and the train as close to those lines as possible. Hence the weeds. I"ll mess with it some more and crop off the bottom.

Took your suggestion Travis - and cropped a little tighter. That did it!
