    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone was willing to help me edit this photo? I have been trying, but nothing I do seems to be to my liking. I just dont want to be able to see the bike@ car and other distracting stuff through the panels of wood on the fence. Maybe just a black or blurred green, but so far I have had no luck! Thanks in advance, Jess.

    If you didn't want to see the bike in the image why didn't you just move it before you shot the picture in the first place?.

    Because this Image was not posed, nor planned. I just happened upon the chance of a good shot so I took it.

    Thats actually what I said to him when I walked around the corner, " How can you be comfortable?" I guess they were just pooped from a long day.

    just a quick fix.. nothing special.

    Id trash it and ask him to do it again. and fix the fence so its straight. MOVE THE BIKE.

    i get you. i have 0 patience when it comes to editing photos, so i always hurry up and do it quick (ESPECIALLY if its not my photo) and have to go back and redo cause the edit looks like crap, lol.

    Yeah, I guess I could just re-shoot, but I swear that is probably the only time I have seen that dog sit still for more than just long enough to lick herself! Lol

    I agree... reshoot.. always best to get the shot right "in camera". if not posssible, be subtle with photoshop... I prefer a lighthand with photoshop. A final photo that doesn't look like it was manipulated at all should be your goal.

    You can do better... I'm on my laptop (not at home). its difficult to use photoshop with just a touch pad.
