This statue stands on the South bank of the Arkansas River at Little Rock. While attending an outdoor concert and fireworks show, I was struck by the backdrop for the 4th holiday, and the twist on the traditional Americana portrayal of a father teaching his son to fish. Unfortunately, construction was going on in this area and there was no way to shoot around the chain link fence and still get the flag backdrop. To crop out the fence moves the statue of the little girl too far down in the frame, and cloning out the fence would, I'm afraid, have a very artificial result. Any suggestions?

If the suject is far enough away from the fence you can shoot with lens up close to the fence, and a wide aperture. This way the fence is blown so far out of focus that it will disapear completely. I have never tried this with a digital but I used to do it all the time on film.

Nicely done, tj and musket. I thought about cloning out the whole fence, but it didn't occur to me to clone in such a way that the statues look like they're in front of the fence. Musket, what adjustment did you make on the color?

I appreciate it.

Actually it hadn't accrued to me either. It wasn't until after I finished the legs on the adult that I realized the fence now looked like it was behind him. And I said to myself. "That saves a lot of work"
