I would not crop from bottom left as that cuts into the interesting background on the left edge, but you can crop up from the bottom with no problems, if you are at 1024 horizontal then you can do 683 vertical instead of the 730 or so that you have. I would take a smidge off the right also and then bring up the bottom a bit further.

And sharpen.
