Both of these photos can be printed in an 8 by 12" format. One version has the team member names, one does not. The text will appear sharper on a printed image. This is because these display shots are scaled down for web viewing and this compression can affect things like text.
I will get them professionally printed rather than use a kiosk.
The reason for the vignette was to eliminate some background distractions. Cloning them out didn't come across as very natural.
I've also adjusted the lighting to illuminate more of the faces and torsos- otherwise the side light from the sun would've darkened these too much.
