Hi everyone, I'm taking photos to the printer soon(3 hours time) and I'm not sure I'm happy with the cropping of this shot. Would you change it?

I'd crop it vertically so that the person's leg on the left is not showing. Great shot, nice colours

Hi John - Wot, no lightning flashes?

Love the traditional in the background, complete with 20th Century Microphone:G Definitely need to crop / clone out the mystery leg, I think. Nice vibrant shot that really conveys an energy.

Great shot. I agree with the others - get rid of the legs (maybe clone out the microphone if you want it to look really authentic) and you've got a winner.

crop out the leg for sure. the microphone, see if you can make it look good, if not, its probably not a big issue.

I think it is easier to clone than crop to maintain proportions. Regards. Jaki.

So John, what did you end up printing? I'm curious.

Good morning everyone, thanks for the help, I ended up delaying the print(I got my dates mixed up), but when I do print it, it will exclude the leg and possibly the microphone.

Thanks again. By the way Rob G, this shot was taken with a sigma 70-200 2.8 and cropped in half. Its a really sharp lens.
