Upload & Sell: Off

after considering everything you have said, and looking at the above crops, I spend the past hour or so looking through various shots taken, and trying different crops. Ultimately I like the landscape crop above the most, with the same crop in 4X5 a close second-does seem to loose some of the feel of her falling off into the edge with that extra bit, and the branches do become more distracting and change the sense of motion. But, I would ultimately print at 8X10...for budget reasons, particularly this close to 8X10, so I guess for my personal image that will have to win out.
I kind of like this image below too-which I will follow with two other shots, just incase I have missed some amazing perspective of editing magic, lol. Probably needed to try a much farther away shot, slightly down the hill with the 100mm I did have in my bag, but did not bring it out. Might have allowed me to capture her and the sun without all the extra fluff in the image, but I did not think about that while I was lying in the mud Not convinced it would have worked either, but I should have tried.
These are two alternate shots, I am really just sharing this for the sake of conversation at is point, unless something incredible jumps out at you.

and off to the right, kind of like the sun blasting on this one, makes me wish I had worked harder to get the branches out of the image, instead of just trying to "use them" as I did.
and the two I am going with, unless something changes-for the comp and for an 8X10 print, based on your feedback and your crop cg:
(of course I will eliminate the slickpic site, but it is the only site I have found that allows me to upload without paying and maintain full exif data for the comp, so I am giving them their props here.)
