Just a quick shot that I took, yesterday evening.

I quite like it NLAlston, the lights on the building in the background add to the ambience for sure

Very nice, I'd be awful tempted to try and photoshop out the power lines but...even with them the lighting is impressive.

Thanks Scott.

You know, your suggestion has really piqued my interest, and I think that I will attempt just that. I will post back with my efforts (don't know how good that will be, though ) just as soon as I get a chance.

Scott-devon had suggested, a while back, that an attempt at cloning out the power-lines, in my photo, be given a shot. Well, I just got around to having time to do so - and here is the result. It is actually my first effort at such a cloning task (all others had been real light-duty stuff, like removing lint from clothing, etc.), and I would like to know how you think I did.

The sky looks ok but the tree and the windows on the center building got kind of messed up in the cloning process. It does take practice - you'll get the hang of it. It is sometimes easier to take another picture from a different view to eliminate or reduce objectionable clutter then spend hours clicking with a mouse and going bug-eyed staring at a monitor.

Great job Nathan and your photoshop work is excellent! Love to see your posts here and you don't do it enough IMHO.

You are so right, J. I honestly didn't notice what a muck I had done of the building , until you brought it to my attention. After reading your reply, I took a good look back at the 'worked' photo, and said to myself "Good grief". Yes, I DO have to gain some experience in cloning, and I'll keep at it until I get better...much, MUCH better .

It's an impressive job for your first try at it. The sky came out very nicely and it took me a minute to notice the building part.

Thanks Scott.

It was indeed a learning experience, and something that I will have to practice on (in order to get really good at it) - but I sure had fun going through the process. I know it was mentioned that jockeying for an easier shot is sometimes the way to go - and there is some merit to that. But the opportunity for that isn't always afforded. The upside to not having a better position (for what I was seeing) available to me, is that it warranted the calling of my hand to some photo editing - which is something that I need/want growth in anyway. So it (as they say) was 'all good' .

Nathan, I love your avatar. I used to live in Buffalo and I miss seeing the falls. That picture takes me back. I am going to be in NY, DC and MD in October, but I won't be able to get that far north, or west for that matter. I do enjoy all the pics that you post.

Hi Dave.

Yes...I know exactly what you mean about the 'Falls. As many times as I have visited there (living just about a half hour away) I always look forward to getting back there. I know that people have saturated photography forums with photos of the 'Falls, and I'll be adding even more to that .

Thanks.
