What exactly did you "nail"?  It looks like a dog and a person in the middle of the photo.  Dog is jumping but I can't tell what else is here.  There is much to be desired in this photo IMHO.  Composition is subject in the dead center of the frame and taken from too far away or with too short a lens.   Try cropping in a ​lot​ to get and get a greater impact for the viewer to actually see what's  happening here.

Nikon D800, 50mm f/1.8 AF-S G @ f/1.8 - scene was much darker than the final result would have one beleive

Bigger here

IMO cropping would destroy the ambience - and "feel" of the image. In essence it would crop away what the 50mm shot wide open, caracter.

He does have a point. If the subject of the picture is the person hugging the dog then the expression or the feel was lost in the rest of the picture.

Or if you're trying to capture the feel of the forest instead, then having them off center adds a lot more dimension.
