I like this image very much. At the risk of stepping in unasked, I find the left side distracting from from the boat under the huge iceberg. I tried cropping some from the left edge. Thoughts?

And a big one at that! Very nice.

Welcome to Greenland. I think I am in that Zodiac. Nice shot. The immensity of it all.

John, there’s no “unasked”: I post photos here in order to attract critique. That said, while I understand your motive I think your crop unbalances the image: it would need to be paired with a similar crop to the right, and that seems to me to remove the context.
Kevin, you and I were in the same Zodiac. This is from the end of the last excursion we did on that trip. The Ocean Nova was moored a little to the left of that berg, and like the Zodiac looked very small.

Love the image as is. If anything, it would have been nice to see some more of the left side as the mountain behind offers a contrast both in colour and size.

I´m for the uncroped one. It gives more ambience and sets you right in the place feeling the inmensity surrounding you. With the small zodiac under the iceberg I think you´ll still percive the hugh mass even with a wider shot.
It´s a really nice photograph

I prefer Jeremy’s original version. It’s just right and well-balanced for me.
