What a cute and precious image!!!!!!

I might be tempted to do a tighter crop.

Thanks for the comments and recommendation. Does this look any better, or should I go tighter? Maybe portrait?

Nice image, Steve. How long ago was this taken? There's a graininess to it that would lend well to a B&W conversion, which was the first thing that came to mind. Rather than a portrait crop that would eliminate the water background, I vote for a crop off the top and right side while maintaining the same aspect ratio.

Nice shot...I agree with Tom on the BW conversion.

Thanks Tom. It was taken several years ago with a P&S. I'll implement your suggestions when I get home tonight.
