Post Processing Choices To Make

Like all things in life we are faced with choices to make.  Photographers are often faced with post processing choices to make.

For example, in the photograph here I was faced with a situation where people were in the frame.  Can you see them?

While at a car show there were hundreds of people walking around and it was impossible to make a photograph like this without anyone in the reflection.

When it came to editing the photograph I was faced with the decision to leave the people in or remove them.

If this was photographed for commercial purposes, like if it was a modern Cadillac instead of an antique, then I would most definitely remove the people.  In fact, if that was the case then people would not have been an issue in the first place.

Because this photograph is only for pleasure I decided to leave the people in the final product.  I believe that little things like that add more life to a photograph.  So why remove it?

What would you do?  Would you remove the people or leave them?

Were you faced with a similar situation recently?  Comment with a link to the final product and tell me what your decision was.

Thanks for reading and happy shooting,

Scott
