Aaaahhhh color!!, finally the sun came out yesterday I was getting really tired of that gray flat light we've been experiencing all winter. Amazing how much an image is improved when you havesome qualitylight.

Here's the original full frame shot. I was wondering how other people here would crop this image? Would you try to lighten it or does the darker image work. I perfer the darker contrast in my images most of the time.
