    Would this be a satisfactory crop?
    I wouldn't crop out all of the clothes line, as it puts her into context, which I like. But I felt as if the top of the wall above her head was a bit distracting...

    You commented on removing the wire and the line in front.
    I assume you meant the one cutting accross her not the one in front of her.

    Here are 2 diferent crops both 5X7 ratio.

    I think a square crop, with her near the left side, would look nice.

    My interpretation (in terms of cropping) is very similar to Steve's second edit. I just though that the top of the wall was important to frame the scene, but otherwise my crop is identical to his. Removing the top of the wall makes the scene a bit cleaner, but I think this scene is actually about busy-ness.

    I see this as some kind of environmental portrait, so -- much like LaFoto -- I think the clotheslines should be kept in.

    As you probably know, cropping/framing is very personal. It all depends on what you want to communicate and how you want to communicate it. Don't let us tell you what and how :)
