I took a PhotoShop class a number of years ago (three days of intensive investigation of the various tools). Somewhere about PS version 5, I think... Anyway we were given this photo in the cloning tool seminar.

The object was to clone out the extraneous wires and correct the building distortion. The difficulty becomes apparent when you have to clone angles, reflective surfaces (windows with vertical curtains and reflections) and small detail areas (wires and shadows across the balcony railings) and various surface textures.

The clean up was all done with the cloning tool. Of course there was no healing brush back then.

The building distortion was corrected with "Transform" and the distort function.

I had a "state of the art" Mac "clamshell" laptop, but fortunately I had taken my Wacom to the seminar. I was sharing a hotel room with a gal from Jacksonville and she only had a trackpad to work with on her PC laptop. She was miserable without her tablet.

Great shot, Steve. Does the phrase "Wizened old man" apply?

Thanks much.

He's actually 90 years old and a cancer survivor. That would have a tendency to "wizen" one.

I'm not 90 (yet), but have done the cancer thing. His face has so much character and his history obviously tells us much.
