I have a wedding pic and I am not sure how I should crop it. Please ignore the color/brightness/contr​ast - any suggestions aside from those are more than welcome. The photo is a composite. The flower girl is from this photo and the page boy is cut out of a different one. I will fix the flower girls blue dress and bridesmaides funny arm :)

Composite original

At first I cropped it like so:

But I didn't like the empty space so I tried moving the bridesmaide:

Your advice please! Should I get rid of the bridesmaide and two men in the background altogether? Image editing is OK so come up with whatever you like. Thanks

I would do this, assuming you don't mind square format, but I'm no expert. :cool:

I don't mind the empty space in your first crop, I am more distracted by the man on the right.

Thanks for the edit. I can't believe I didnt try that straight up. I added vignette to your crop. What do you think? Maybe I over did it..

Thanks for the feedback. This crop solves the leg issue but I will edit the man out of the wider crop and see how it looks. My thinking was to leave the doors in as it shows they are entering the isle.

Any thoughts are appreciated. Do you think the shot is good in the first place to be spending time on it? I have quite a few more if it's not
