Ray I am not up in arm at all, and the question once more is not the critic but who critic and the value of that critic .... croping left side here is a nonsense
No, it's not "nonsense".
It's exactly that attitude which people react (badly) to.
Fine, you disagree with those who suggest that you crop your image, that is okay.
But cropping it is not "nonsense", it's an opinion
, or a criticism
of your image.
If you can't take such criticism without labeling it as "nonsense" or editing your posts after the fact to make them look better, I strongly suggest that you don't post your images at all.
Of course, that's just my opinion on your posting style.
As for the image, I disagree with those who want to crop the left part, I think it's part of what actually makes the image work. The softness and low contrast in the fog gives the image a dream-like quality that appeals to me.
Yes, the straws in the lower left corner are distracting, and you should probably do something about those.
And since it seems to matter to you, you may browse through my publically available images on my web site (the link is included in every article).
