It sure is a lot easier to crop someone elses image. I started cropping and went crop happy. I actually like this version. I know it is not what you are after, but I really like the contrasty silhouette of the trees. I think that is the strength of the image.
I know how it feels when you crop an image down and watch your final print size dwindle....on the bright side, with a contrasty silhouette, it could be up-rezed pretty easily.
