I want to put this on a canvas, not sure which is best crop is the best? Help please!

The first makes me feel more on the bridge, the second I like the lines up of the cables...

Canvas on Demand is having a great sale by the way!

I like the second better.
The sky is more impressive and I like the cable joint visible at the top.
I think I like the bridge support not dead center also.

I like the first one because the cables come together right at the edge of the print, providing a natural termination. The second one lets the one pair of cables lead the eye off the page. Nice shot in any case.

I like the second, lighter version, the mts. contrast with the bridge a little more.

2 has more of a feeling of height. I prefer it.

I like the first because the sky is all cloudy and the bridge has a hole on the left.

Please know, I am NO expert!

Whichever crop you decide to go with, could I make a suggestion? Looking at both the thumb view and even moreso the download version(s), my eye is drawn to edge issues, especially on the cables on the right hand side. In particular, there's a black banding of sorts that parallels the vertical cable that I find worrisome, and secondarily, there's a gap between the cloud detail in the 1-2 pixel range generally along the other cables. (Sure, 'normal' print viewing distance will mitigate some of that, but how often have you seen a viewer get up close to look? Maybe 90% of the time, or thereabouts?) I didn't hit every edge (difficult to do in low-res 72ppi images, easier to do in whatever resolution you'll likely send to print), but of those I did, compare the difference. Its such a strong image that it would be a shame to commit the picture to print without doing the easy fix.

Second. Would even crop a bit more of the foreground.
Also, play around a little with the vertical/horizon orientation;
I'm not crazy about the tilt of the bridge structure.

Hard to pick. Both are excellent.
