Thanks Shiva, Scott, Steady and Andrew.
In similar shots, I've "split the tree down the middle," and decided that I seldom like it unless I want the tree to appear endlessly wide (i.e. as with a sequoia tree). I didn't want to do that with this tree.
Admittedly, this is a consideration that I'm ambivalent about every time I include a tree on the edge of a shot.
Also, this was a walk-by-shooting, and the original was mostly instinctive. Once done, I try to keep any cropping to a minimum.
