I've been asked to provide some prints of this team photo, with some adjustments that are a bit beyond my capabilities at this point. I hope that someone could point me in the right direction. Specifically, I've been asked to eliminate the folks in the right background. Cloning is a bit difficult, so I was thinking of blurring the background a la a DOF, to bring the team in front out. This is an uncropped version, and it will still require cropping to an 8X10 and sharpening etc. Thank you for your advice. Here is the picture.
