This is a tough one to clone out and have it look good as you got that complex pattern in the back.

Older persons will have seen the American film 'Short Circuit', starring a military robot called "Number 5" which accidentally develops a loving human personality, and has the catch phrase "Five Alive". In this film many scenes just like this appear, so I think it just needs a caption to make it over....

Right, not an immediate cloning indeed, especially because .... the missing element to clone does not appear in other parts of the shot! ( or not ? )

However, even if something does not exist at all it can be created with other elements and, if we are really guessing the real shape or not, it doesn't matter too much : the important thing is for it to be realistic in a plausible way.

We could make a challenge out of this : how would you remove that big M ?

P.S. : look,observe,look, this is a building corner ....

I know Short Circuit! That might be because it was never off of TV for years though. :lol:

Here is a cheery little thought. With every passing minute of every day, you're one step closer to death.:?

Here is my effort for cloning out the big M and the traffic lights.
Click.

And here is my entry for this challenge. I spent ages on this. But if it is the biggest pile of crap you've ever seen please tell me.


Click image for a better version.



This is another version (click), I dodged Charlie. Which is better?

The Charlot is definitly cool, ferny! Well done.

The difference between the two versions is very subtle : I had to copy the two versions on two layers and switch visibility on-off-on-off..... to see the difference.

However the dodged one is better for me.

As far as the big M ..... you can get the right hint right on the right of the monitor (right ?):-)

That has gone way over my head sergio. You've got me thoroughly confused.
Ahh, unless you mean the phone?

I looked at this one again this morning and wasn't keen on it. The more I see of it the less I like it. I assume by the lack of response others feel the same.
