Default Clone, Crop, or Cull

Lot of obstacles, backlit, close confinement, and distance from subject.

f/5, ISO 200, 1/200 sec, fill flash.

Hummm, interesting question. Don't think you can crop the other people out. You have good out of focus depth I think, so the people back there don't really bug me too much. Maybe if they were a bit more out of focus it would be better, but they don't bother me as much as the big plain triangle of nothingness in the upper right corner. I'd clone or patch something over or in to that area, even though it didn't really look like that...

I suppose it depends on what the purpose of the shoot is. Is the image for your personal use, for the clothes designer, for the model? Then, you'll have to decide if the work needed to get it to where you want it, is worth the trouble.

If you have similar images that would work better, then I'd just cull it. If you don't then you have to work with what you have.

Thanks for comments and suggestions, I'm considering the cloning.

Planning to send to the model, have others that might work though. Thanks for commenting.

To my eye, the cropped version improves the image immensely.
