Heartbreakingly beautiful. I much prefer the uncropped version as it creates a sense of place. All I would do is retouch out the obtruding branch in the foreground, a very simple procedure in Photoshop with the Patch tool. Otherwise, tonal values, color, and composition are excellent.

P. S. Don't fall victim to a purist attitude about retouching an image. All the best photographers of the past have done so to the best of their abilities in film days. They would hide distractions by burning them in so they were practically unnoticeable. Well, it's so much easier to get superior results these days.
