    Now that you mention it, I can see it - there is a very strong rhythm formed by the two near-foreground trees on both the left and the right. And the tree on the far left you are referencing could be seen as interrupting that rhythm. But honestly, the picture is so strong that I think it comes out of it perfectly fine. I wouldn't have noticed it until you mentioned it and in part I think that is attributable to the (lucky?) fact that the tree on the left is tonally a little lighter and therefore seems to blend into the background more easily.

    Obviously, I love looking at others' images and would love to see a potential crop, but I suspect that the loss of width would make the resulting image look a little "chunkier" (not in a good way).

    Either way, really beautiful work. You clearly have an eye for this particular aspect ratio.

    Thank you very much...I appreciate the kind words.

    I'm with Mars, leave it in. I'm no expert in composition and image design, but I think it adds a little tension and also balances the somewhat heavier background on the right. By the way, are you familiar with your fellow Texan David H. Gibson? He does primarily panoramic B&W, very nice. He has a website. You can also pick up a used copy of his book Canyonlands Vision for a pretty reasonable price. Like any book, it has a few sub-par images, but a lot of very nice ones as well. You can preview most of it by going to the Southeast Utah gallery at his web page.
