Default Comp/Balance help needed

Should I trim more from the right side?

Definitely, adding a bit to the left and bottom would probably help too. Also seems to be leaning right a bit.

I concur on both. Trim the right, maybe add a bit left, and definitely level the train.

You also have something in the lower left-hand corner that is slightly distracting. Did you take a frame after this one?

A later frame would most likely have a shadow on the nose, and wouldn't get rid of the weeds. This may sound strange, but I think the weeds add some depth to an otherwise-mundane wedgie.

As far as the crop, after levelling and taking just enough off of the left and bottom to accomodate the rotation, I see two choices that will get the subkect out of the center. You can stay with a 4:6 crop, taking off of the top and right until the nose is in the ROT zone. Another alternative is to ise a 4:5 crop, and take everything off of the right.

I was thinking about 4 or 5 feet further into the frame.
