    I want to determine if the issue that I know exists with this image is obvious to other photographers, or if I have done a sufficiently good job of obfuscating it. I'm aware that there are some other issues, and they're not a concern right now, I just want to know if you can see the "one thing", and if you can, is it acceptable, or does it require further work.

    Is it that it's a tad dark in the bottom third? Was that to cover the fact you have nipped off the toe of the guy on the right?

    Good! You apparently didn't see it! :D The missing toe is one of the issues, but it isn't the issue. Thanks for playing!

    The only thing that catches my eye is the background repeats a couple of times and looks like a separate background was shopped in about 3/4 up the image.

    Edit. I now see shadows on all of the subjects to their right.

    Most people are NEVER going to see the shadows so I wouldn't worry about them. The background "seams' I'd just blur a bit to make it less obvious.

    Did I find it? Or do I keep looking. lol

    Just seems rather dark, but then they're all in black/gray, and the carpet's brown... lol not much color there beyond skin tone.

    I almost wondered about the subject in the middle, his shoulders are forward in front of the two on each side, but I can't tell if he was actually standing that much in front of the others or if he was added in post by chance later. I don't know, his outline seems a tad sharper or something, but maybe I'm looking too hard trying to find something!! lol

    I don't think they're going to notice if we're playing Where's Waldo? trying to find it!

    The only outer thing I can see when looking very closely is the background shadows, particularly around the heads but it's not that noticeable at any sort of distance?

    Left and right margins seem kind of tight, compared with the topspace. I see some flaws others have pointed out.

    The toe is missing because the men on that side of the photo are closer to the camera which is a bit odd but not a critical issue. Looks like some cloning in the upper part of the background.

    looking only on my phone but if you had just asked for c&c without the other info I would have only said the bottom right is too dark, otherwise looks good.

    The shadow that everyone casts, caused by a light just a few feet to the photographers' left.
