July Image Critique & Challenge: Distressed

David Blecman's Annapolis Photography Workshop Group July image critique's theme was "Distressed."  I didn't have any winners. Here is one of my entries.

Made several suggestions for cropping the crap out. At the time I was irritated by their comments. However, I went ahead and reedited the image.

Cropped is better. Can not see a huge difference in brightness.

Hey Mike,

I'm not so sure brightening the whole image does anything, but cropping/cloning out the stuff on the left does make a difference.
