1940's photo "cropping"

I going to this in charcoal. The original is large. I believe I can get a better effect if I crop it down. The pic on the far left is the original the others are my ideas. What do you think?

I love old photos.

What are you calling this? Is the man on our right part of the story?

Hi
I agree with RobinZ. Why are you doing this? What are you trying to say or depict and who of the people in the photo are important in what you feel. These questions should be taken into account when you decide on how to crop the photo. Good luck on your endevour.

I think if you downsize it you will loose some of the detail and character. Very cool picture and I agree you need to ask yourself why you are doing it and then crop or don't crop your picture according to you focus and goal.

Re: 1940's photo "cropping"

In #1 the tail of the car and girl split in half does not look good.
In #2 you have a setup of 4 that is slightly regimented/lined-up
In #3 problem in #2 is solved.

In all of them there is a division along the middle (horizontally), and there is not much space above their heads. In #2 and #3 I get a feeling they are too perfectly fitted within the frame.

Re: 1940's photo "cropping"

I just saw the girl peeking in between the men! Is she the focal point?
