Can others edit my Photos
Photos OK to edit
This is my first attempt to remove something this big from a photo (a big crane), also my first attempt to take pictures of fireworks!! :lol:
Did this in photoshop, using a mixture of spot healing brush, healing brush, clone stamp tool, smudge tool, dodge tool, and last but not least, content-aware fill - if I'm being lazy :p. I used healing brush the most.

Well hope you enjoy the following!

What do you think? C&C would be most welcomed.

BTW, this was taken in Hong Kong on 1st Oct 2010, which is the National Day of People's Republic of China. I wasn't able to get the best places to take these shots, because those get so crowded it just makes holding a camera impossible. I wish I could get a shot with the harbour and fireworks too, but that's impossible for my location. Also, each exposures varied from 1/2 seconds to 10".
 
You did well. I like the last photo the best.
 
In the last photo, there is a black artifact bottom center. It seems to be part of the crane you may have missed in removing. Looks good, content-aware definitely saves a ton of time. Back in the days of photoshop 3 -- it was, needless to say, "fun". (Sarcastically of course)

Haha!! Didn't notice that at all :p. Thanks for the tip.

Would that be CS3, or PS3, or were you still in short pants then. H
 
WOW That is amazing and obviously time consuming. I love it! There is a tool called "clone" in the picnik editor that is similar too. I never thought to use the spot healing brush in PS though. Good tip. THANKS!
