As the week has already started, thanks for your kind wishes, Paul. I too wish a prolific week to you regarding the photographic opportunities as well.
And about the language, it is the goodness of English. I just exploit it as often as I can :G

i liked the photo better with the shadows on the grass, to do cloneing properly it takes time and u can see the repetition of the clone stamp lots in the grass where u have tried to get rid of the shadows

vary clone tool size, pressure and select different areas of grass

when i clone something out i work on the picture as big as i can get it as when reduced errors are not as visible, and i keep leaning back to see what its like from a distance

Hello pj1974

I especially like your later edits with tent on the right for some reason...

The tent seems to balance out the mountains.

Of course, if you had included your fiance in the photo...well then!...

Then it woulda, shoulda been Photo of the Day for sure! :idea:

:-)

Greetings Bahadir,

Thanks for wishing me a good week in return. Well I must admit your English is very good, do you use it a lot in your work or you have friends / relatives with whom you speak English?

In any case, may you have a peaceful yet productive time ahead, and till next post - all the best and hope you photographic achievements bring you joy!

Paul

Hi Reanimator,

Thanks for your comments, Yes you are right that I didn't do a very good job with the cloning on the grass. I was a bit in a rush and also somewhat tired when I tried this.

Your suggestions are helpful and I'll keep them in mind for future cloning work.. .from my experience so far (I've only done a few "clones") what you say is true (do detail work, small brush size, then look from a distance).

Again, thanks for your comments and helpfulness.

Paul

Hey Digcamfan!

Well, you're funny!!! And maybe when I have some time I'll just have to do a GOOD clone job and paste my fiancee in the photo and submit it here on the forum as well as to the photo of the day competition... (do I really have to share the prize with you if I win, since after all it was your idea?!) :blah:

So when you write "tent on the right" do you mean the photos with the tent in the CENTRE of the drawing? (as in, not left, not right)? Or don't I know my left from my right here....? (coz I think I only cloned the tent to the left, the original had it more near the middle!)

Thanks for looking!

Paul

Nah, keep the prize, pj1974.:-)

If you win it, you can give the digcam to your dear fiance and you can be

"dueling photographers"!:idea:

I shudder to think of the possibilities to which you would both be exposed!

:blah:

Hi digcamfan!

The idea of winning and you allowing me to keep the full prize makes me even more keen to try this.... so keep posted! :-)

And your idea of "dueling photographers" sounds very tempting too... lol!!

Actually since I've bought a DSLR, my fiance has and uses my fuji f601 (P&S) which she enjoys taking photos with and is developing in theenjoyment and skill of photography herself.

Beware, maybe you'll find some of her posts of me here someday.. Now that WILL be scarey!! :blah: Maybe I'll be cloned in as superman flying from the sky or something if she gets into post processing too!! :-)

Thanks again for your kind words, Paul. As a matter of fact, English is not considered a second language but a foreign language here. Yet, there are some universities which offer their faculty courses in English, and thus also determine the definition of my job as a humble lecturer:-)
