    I just got home from Garden of the Gods, and uploaded these pics. The lighting was harsh and I have 100 pics with lens flares, washouts, and junk. But, these 3 made me smile :D

    Critiques always welcome (and how do I clone out dirt on the lens I didn't notice?)

    3 percent is good- I like the 1st and 3rd the best.

    If you have CS2 use the healing tool or clone stamp. The clone stamp if just photoshop.

    You might know this, but just select the clone tool, press the 'alt' key and select an area you want to 'clone', then click the booger you want to get rid of.

    wilson, I was there from about 5:15-7:15 last night. I got eager after work and decided to go out.

    Thanks abraxas - I really had no idea how to use the clone tool. I've generally used every other tool - but the heal and clone I've never sat down and played with. So you are a big help with that - thanks!

    You're welcome- The healing tool is much better if you have it. Just click on the gremlin. If it's kind of in the sky it blends real nice. The cloning tool is better for near skylines and abrupt changes in color and pattern.
