Thanks for your comments. I tried to play with various croppings, but choosed this. I thought the spider web added something to the empty space, but maybe it`s only distracting.

I find this composition to be very attractive. I'm still trying to learn what does and doesn't make for good composition so I'll be interested in how this one does. The strand of spider's web is slightly distracting but not to any large degree. I might have brushed it away before shooting or cloned it out in post.

Big aperture shot here. To much space on the right drawing the viewers eye away from the subject. Think I would have croped off a bunch to almost square aspect ratio. Good luck, dp.
