    yes, to get them really nice on a blue background, I usually have to clone out all the clouds around the power lines ... quite a task sometimes!

    I've thought about photographing an entire softball game with the chainlink fence in sharp, tight focus throughout.

    Where am I now?
    I remember in the good old days before digital having to walk around with a chainsaw in my camera bag to help get rid of unsightly power lines...
    Then I realised that they were as much a part of the landscape as the trees and clouds so I either incorporate them or find a different view. Saved me a lot of work.
    It all depends on whether you want to present an idealised view or show things as they are :mrgreen:
