    I took this photo on Saturday when a nasty storm was rolling in. I loved the color of the sky against the color of the new leaves on the tree. Can someone help me take out all the background other than the tree, grass and sky. I don't want the powerlines and the trees that have not bloomed in the pic. Thank you! :D

    It would be difficult, but possible.

    Nice shot anyway.

    Thank you. I am new to photography, and I notice a lot of people use photoshop. Is that how this would be edited?

    Photoshop is one of the main post processing tools.

    Photoshop is the program, it's made by Adobe. They also make Lightroom which is more specific to photographers where Photoshop is geared towards pretty much everything in design.

    Here daisy check this out, phong [ advanced photoshop masking technique ].
    I think it will help you. You should also play with your contrast and hue/saturation.
    If you've got the software and the time, you can do almost anything:)

    Hello Missdaisy. Keep in mind that Photoshop is only a tool. You should focus on getting the right exposure and composition on location. I personally just use Photoshop for minor tweaks. I recommend trying some photography tutorials to sharpen your eye. :)

    You can also download a free 30 day trial of PaintShopPro Photo X2 from Corel's website. It's a excellent alternative to Photoshop.

    Processed in PSP X2

    Oh wow bdavison, that already looks better! Thank you! Did you use PaintShopPro Photo X2 to take out the powerline?
    Sorry, I just saw that you did.
