I'll take this chance to thank you sergio for providing us more images to edit. I've looked through mine and can't find any that would suit the challenge. They're either beyond hope or there is no scope for editing. I'm finding the hardest part about this challenge is looking for a photo that has potential. Of course, there are some there. I just can't spot them.

I'll have to take one specially. I'm finding just as hard to think of what to take. Taking a boring picture is completely against the way I think when I take a picture. Taking a boring picture that can be edited is even harder.

Or maybe I'm talking a load of rubbish.

Bad, boring photos are my specialty! :-)

Thanks, sergio, for all the goodies to play with!

Hello Brtsergio...

Thanks for the submission

I elected to remove the M in upper left of photo and clone in (albeit roughly) some of the building facade.

My goals was to lend more emphasis to the camera, its subject and the "hangers on" that are usually present at most outdoor film shoots.

Good job, digcamfan! I stared at this and stared and this and came up with nothing. I also thought to emphasize the onlookers, thought to emphasize the camera screen - thought to crop just a horizontal slice, or vertical slice - but whatever I thought to try missed some of the important picture - this is a slice of life, not a slice of a photo, in my mind. I'm going to leave it as is. It tells a story, and very nicely. :-)

That's kind of neat. I like your gel/saran wrap treatments. :-)

A good crop, digicamfan ! Both versions are appealing.

Yes, a comic book, Pierre !

I've got an idea for this but I'm having real problems with cloning out some things. Such as the giant M. It either looks unconvincing, blobby or a mottled mess. Are there any tips or techniques I should be employing?
