Evening Storm

We're back to our trip down the Coast. This shot had a bunch of lens flare. I took it into PSCS5, whipped the Lasso Tool around the spots of flare, clicked Command+Delete; up came the Content Aware Fill dialog box; I clicked ok; voila, the flare was gone and everything was blended perfectly. Absolutely amazing.

Dramatic sky n ground. Great mood. I got problems with flares too but for the lack of knowing any better, I clone them out in photoshop

@MK: With cloning, it's often tough to get perfect blending.

Amazing shot such cool golden tones,m the content aware fill sounds like its as good as Photoshop was saying from your comment

12 May 2010 4:56pm

@JJ: It's not as perfect as Adobe maintains, but it is very good. On some photographs, such as this one, it did work perfectly. The more complex the scene, the more work you have to do.
