    This is one of mine and my wifes favorite pictures. Unfortunately the white on the statues head and shoulders practically ruin the image for me. Its just too much. I tired to clone stamp and heal brush the white out. What do you think?

    Sorry Eric, that does not work well. The color and texture do not match the rest of the photo.

    Maybe one of the others here can help you some, sorry, but all I can do is complain about your results. :mrgreen:

    O well. Thanks for being honest. No sugar coating. I thought the shoulder looked ok but I wasn't sure about the head.

    I did not even notice the shoulder, I think you did great with the shoulder.

    I could not even tell you step 1, so I still think you did more than I could.

    Work on the "skull cap" and I think you and your wife will be proud!!!:thumbup:

    Or, you could label the photo


    "old statue, new snow"


    Sorry Eric, my sense of humor is pretty poor, I meant no harm with it.

    Maybe try asking for an opinion without stating that a clone stamp was used?

    You're right shoulder doesn't look bad however the head patterns that you fixed are too perfect compared to the rest of the statue.

    You would have to know something was used. The image just doesn't change on it's own. I have no problem telling people how I did it, that way maybe they can share a better way to do it.

    Yoinks, I just realized your Photos were not ok to edit. Let me know if you wish and I'll remove it.
