Pole

Hi Guys,
Looking to get some advice on how to completely remove this pole from the picture, I have posted the original and also where I am so far. I have mainly been using content aware and cut and paste some of the railings.
Part of the railing has a decorative part on the top, I believe this should be on every 2 sections of the railings so I cut and paste it to move along but cannot seem to get it to line up properly, I am using the free transform tool but not sure which specific transform tool to use, also what is the best way when cut and paste parts of an image to make it blend together?
Many thanks in advance.
Lofty

Re: Pole

Hi Lofty
This is where the vanishing point filter may do the job for you. You can clone from other parts of the image and it will adjust the size/width of what you are cloning based on that perspective. Worth a shot.

Re: Pole

It's no good removing an object and then leaving a trail of retouching stages. In that small area, that was the lampost, any cloned or copied detail should be resized to match the 'gap'. Concentrate on the detail in the distant buildings making sure the rooves and angles match up. Make sure the railing gaps are equidistant. Cut and paste areas of the same texture, reposition them over the post, and 'feather' restore (or use grad masks) the edges with a soft brush to blend seamlessly. I wouldn't use any automatic functions to solve this problem as they lack finesse. This is a very simple job compared to your normal exercises Lofty!
