    Its a dark picture, but I like and am tied to the image. What i would like to know is how to get rid of the utility pole so that all you see on the right is the street sign. Thanks-[​IMG]

    Actually I don't think it's under exposed really. The subject looks just fine.

    Of course I want to know how; it looks better without the pole, right? I knew it would. I know its underexposed, but i like it anyway.

    I just used Photoshop CS2, using primarily the Clone Stamp tool, and secondly the Healing Brush. Play with them a bit, and you'll get the hang of it.

    i like it the darkness around the image brings my eyes to the subject that you really wanted to capture. Just my .02.

    I really like that shot! I also think removing the utility pole is an improvement...but also that car in the upper right keeps bugging me. How's this crop:

    I know what you mean about the car, but i like the way the road goes off into the distance and curves. Maybe leave the shot, but remove the car? If we can remove a pole, then the car shouldn't be too much harder to do, right? Of course, I'm not the one that removed the pole, and i am just getting ready to attempt it now. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Yea, that was the only drawback with my crop - I noticed that too that you lose the curve of the road. The car should be easy to remove. I would have done that instead but it was late.

    There is not much detail over in the upper right corner, so that's good - it will be an easy job. Let me know if you need any help with the clone tool - I'm fairly experienced with it. Feel free to PM me.

    I like your original photo exactly the way that it is. I don't think it's underexposed either. The pole is what it is, part of the scene and I like it. The curve of the road draws you to the subject and the car is dark enough that I didn't even pay attention to it until someone mentioned it. Leave it the way it is and post it on vazaar - I would think it'd get featured...
