Thank you for your help, Kraellin.
That looks great. Looking for other pictures of cars from that era sounds like a good idea. I did not think that it would look that good from cloning.

rondon, your idea of enlarging the two people is also an interesting idea. I never would of thought of that. Thanks to all of you for your help. I now have some ideas and a little direction. Maybe this won't be as bad as I thought.

Well, here it is.

This is about as good as it's going to get for my skill level. I followed rondon's lead and made them a bit bigger, moved them over and cloned the rest. I had a little trouble with the car in front of the woman in the background so, I just took it out. I hope it looks ok.
Again, thank you very much to everyone that helped me with this one.

good job!

only thing i dont like is the really black suits. was this a contrast or curves adjustment that did this?

great suggestion, rondon. wish i'd thought of that much more elegant and kills two birds with one stone.

Yes, the suits are a little dark, now that I look at it. That was a contrast adjustment. Thank you for the compliment.

Thanks all

Glad you liked the idea... I found I have very little artistic talent but I call this sort of thing more the mechanical side of PS.
your final looks good Don

I like this. Although the shadow is to light and sharp. But hey, I imagine it was a quickie.

I agree. The original example of this method also was dark. Maybe darkening them made slecting them easier? I dont know

could be, pjanak, in which case the selection could have been put on a separate layer and corrected for contrast/lightness.

at any rate, it's taught me a new trick, so thanks, all
