How often and how much do you crop?

How about the inverse

The inverse means: uncrop in post.

Here's the original composition, as it came out of camera.

The composition I'm after:

surroundings added in post

It's done by carefully aligning and compositing together other similar shots from the sequence, that have the surroundings not featured in the first shot.

Reason why it's done this way is because I want that particular pose from the 1st shot, and not any other pose from the sequence.

But I'm not satisfied with the tight composition, so there you go: it gets uncropped.

It's hard work, but I've done this way a dozen times.
