Would it make the scene more intimate and cozy? The partial covering of the Open sign is a great inclusion as is, without the effort to move left to get the full spelling. And #2 is perfect for me as is; wonderful contrast and opposition between the clear circles of drops and the fuzzy telephone and power lines. Easy for the eye to go back and forth between them. "Oh, the weather outside is frightful...." Well done. Matt


Thanks for your detailed feedback, Matt. Much appreciated! I've come to really enjoy your articulate viewpoint. sensitivity and the bit of humor that often peeks through :D I tried a couple of crops but couldn't come up with a satisfactory alternative to #1. I think it's one of those that have a different story for the viewer than the photographer and I respect and appreciate that. Thank you again!
