Can you just Photoshop it?

I’m decently proficient in Photoshop but there are limits.  Had a family portrait of 125+.  Weather decided to bring in a tropical storm on the day we had scheduled the shoot (IOW, it was raining).  We’re getting wet, my equipment is getting wet but client decided to go through with the shoot.  Because of the circumstances, there were some issues.  This is the original image.


After moving some people around, replacing heads of those who blinked, taking out distracting elements, cleaning up the grass in the front and enhancing the sky, this is the final product.


Could I have done more?  Maybe but the weather made it a challenging assignment.
