Challenge 899: The Mystery of the Missing Chorister
This week's Challenge comes from GKB, who was sent this photograph of the Vivace Choir. The lady seated in the middle of the bench is no longer part of the ensemble, and Gordon was asked if she could be eliminated with extreme prejudice/tastefully removed from the image.

It seems to me you have several options here: you could remove her and leave a gap on the bench; or you could replace her with someone from the back, remembering to take them out there as well; or you could bunch up the two remaining sitters, making a narrow bench and relocating some of the background people.

Or you could just replace her with an alien, or a garden gnome, or a moose.

High res is here.

Steve, should that not be Vicace Choir? But then, maybe not. See their website at www.vivacechoirsussex.org.uk

Don’t know if my contribution is up to his standard, but this is my attempt.

Extreme Prejudice

To someone who has lived away for twenty years there is something quintessentially English and Midsomerish about this photo.

Seems one of Vivace's members was very unpopular. Soon Inspector Barnaby will have to determine which one these smiling faces wielded the purple tie that strangled her.

One of those silly images that you don't immediately see, but when you do, it's all you can see.

Ahh, no 3D! Well done all.

I also thought of removing her.

Oh all right!! For 'silly' read 'infantile'.
