    I am not too keen on the unfocused face on the right of the picture, after looking at the lady my eye was drawn to it and it took a moment to realise just what it was. I find this aspect uncomfortable, I realise it is extremely difficult shooting in these situations.

    Looking at it again in the cold light of day- you're right- I'm now wondering how much I can crop that out

    If you use Photoshop, try using the Lighting Effects filter on the guy.

    Haven't got PS at the moment but this strengthens the case for getting it

    I don't mine the closer guy at all, but the disembodied hand on the other side is a bit off. The mic could be cloned out fairly easily I think.

    Overall maybe just cool the WB down slightly - not to completely neutralise the colour cast, just tame it a bit

    I think you can just crop the hand and mike out really. Leave the out focus guy in as the DOF is doing the work there.

    PS: I think you should have pushed the ISO abit more and got extra shutter speed though because of motion blur.
