We recently went on a vacation in some of the islands here in the Philippines and during the trip, we ate on a floating restaurant. It's a makeshift boat/ferry where people eat while they get taken on a tour of the river.

While on the trip, a few kids swimming in the river hung on - literally - for the ride

I thought the subject was nice. I just don't know if I shot it right. Open for your comments.

Great pictures! i'd just clone out my own feet... they take too much attention, at least for me (specially in the 1st shot).

I agree with Javiz, great shot but the foot spoils the shot, either clone or crop!

I actually thought of that, getting the feet out of the picture... But I wasn't sure so I posted the unedited pics first and waited if someone would point that out. I think I'd prefer crop over clone. What do you guys think?

Thanks!

One cannot help but wonder the fourth and fifth shots.
Looks like newsreels :-)

I think i'd prefer clonning since i like the work of the rails leading you to the children... but of course a quick cropping to see how that works worth it.

Could they pass for coffee-book material too? Haha. Actually there are more in the set.

My only problem with cloning is that I'm not good with the tool

I was looking at the pics again and figured that the first one needs the clone to take out the feet... pretty skilful cloning needed there

The second and third ones could do with a minor crop

Select and Copy a section of the boards from an ajacent area. Paste over the offending region as a new layer. Adjust transparency of the layer and move the pasted layer until it lines up. Save your work so far >> Make a duplicate of this new layer and hide it ( in case you mess up the next steps). Make the original pasted layer opaque. Erase edges of paste as appropriate. Using the clone tool (using all layers) Clone out some wood cracks and nails and clone in others. This hides the fact it is a copy and paste.

Don't go over board...just take out the foot with toes!!!
