This area of superb sandstone rocks is only about a mile from my home. Indian petroglyphs and great formations of pillow rocks make this a special place. In this image, I was trying to clone out a dead tree, color correct and provide a bit of contrast. Since I use a polarizer filter, my skies tend to vignette on the corners (which I like) but it makes it nearly impossible to clone skyline objects. I tried to copy and flop the sky in the middle of the image to rid myself of the pesky tree, but now I have a dark area of sky where it shouldn't be. Is it too obvious? I don't have any plain, empty sky shots to drop in...but I will start taking some. Thousands of images of sky but none without clouds in it. So here is the original image (with itty bitty biplane in the sky): And here is the touched up version. Beyond the obvious shortcomings with the sky color, am I going in the right direction with composition, color and contrast?
