This is interesting.
Now, that the horizon is gone I have the impression something is missing, though I wanted it cropped before.
Maybe cropping it partly, just above the hills and not totally would be the best solution - just to get rid of the distracting clouds.
Probably the horizon worked as a sort of frame on the upper side, which is now missing.
Cropping a bit from the left I think was a good idea to keep the aspect ratio not too wide.
