    What takes away from this image for me is that little bit of background we see up at the top left and the grass and shadow at the bottom left.

    I think the capture of light onto the trees along the row, creates an almost abstract pattern that's impinged upon by those parts of the image as it stands at present. The idea of cropping top and bottom to give something like a 2.5:1 ratio, would, I think, produce a much stronger image that is about light, pattern and texture. One idea to think about.

    I ended up at 3.85 x 12 inches, though while I liked the abtract quality of the 2.5:1, I wanted more of the Juniper to show through. Also, I gave it a bit of a border to help confine the area.

    And to take it a step farther to further exploit color, patterna and texture...

    I am not unhappy with the crop. I didn't like what I originally had, and the first crop, while it eliminated the initial issue, wasn't all that hotsy-totsy either. I think your suggestion was spot on.
