Hi guys....so ive already received a lot of positive feedback on this picture, which i appreciate, but I was wondering if I could clone out something and make it better..

So, the first image is the original cropped image ive been using. The second was the original image... and the third is the new, cloned version where i removed wifes arm and recreated the fence.. truth be told, im not a wiz when it comes to cloning jobs, so this took some thought, but I wanted to know if my daughters hair in back now looks believable or if I should stick to my original image on top..

Also, if 3rd looks good, but you can suggest a different crop, since leaving the far right post may not be the best composition, please do :)

Thanks!!

I think the FIRST edit has the most impact. The tight crop really focuses the viewer's attention on what's meaningful in the shot, and gives more emphasis to the horses eye. I really like it - thanks for sharing Charles.

Thanks Sapearl, great point, probably why I ended up doing it like that in the first place and just didnt know why i liked it, thanks the confirmation....not the hardest crop job, but still not easy.... tough to add back hair in sections :)

I agree... the first image with the tight crop has the most impact. Well done!

I find that when I do cloning jobs such as this I tend to stare at that single location of the photo most any time I view it and I can find some reason not to like it... because it's not perfect. Although, usually no one that I show the image to can notice anything was done. Having said that, if you would have posted only the third image, I would have had a hard time believing her had was ever there. Regardless, I would still like a tighter crop than what you currently have of the final image.

I concur the first has the best focal point the last brings to much into the picture.

Is the girl pasted in? Why does her left hand look so wonky?
