So pleased you have posted the uncropped version as well Annette
As you can see, the heavy cropping causes the subject to lose some of it's finer detail
Still a good shot, with a fab background and a well deserved RC, but that is why I try to achieve a nigh on full frame image to begin with and only perform a slight crop, if any, to balance up the subject in the frame

You did askWink
