Most of the trees had lost their color, but I ran into this stand of poplars. The corner of the roof is not that interesting in the shot, but I thought it would ruin the perspective to crop it out.

I would really like opinions on this.

I think the red roof should be eliminated by cropping. It degrades an otherwise really good shot. I also like that the trees are somewhat blurred, although i prefer resolution and sharpness in general.

I agree with the roof, but I found the crop difficult to get a good composition.

BTW, it was a very hazy day with fog rolling through at times, so the lack of sharpness was affected by that.
