Cropping Query

Any views on cropping this image. A friend has ‘borrowed’ it for a church calendar and thinks it needs trimming a little. I think the composition is strong but any observations please.

Your friend is crop-happy. Looks good just the way it is.

Thanks both, taking anything away wrecks the composition in my view. It was a lucky snap as the light went 2 minutes later.

Wow - what a great photo! I certainly can't see how cropping would improve it any (in my mind it would hurt it.) -Jeanie

Alas tragic news, the calendar committee have decided on a stock Christmas clipart image and my snap has been rejected ! Considered throwing myself in the moat but couldn't bear to poison the crocs !

Chris, If they rejected that photo for a "stock clipart image", then I think you should be glad the photo wasn't chosen. They obviously have no appreciation for high-quality photos and your photo deserves to be displayed/published in a place where people will appreciate it! -Jeanie
