Why re-shoot? They look like they would be easy to clone out...


Yes, cloning would work great but the spot I shot from is only a few blocks from my house so I figured I'd just walk over there and see what I could do. Once it stops raining. I was really embarrassed because I run a photo group here and am always telling people to pay attention to what they're shooting. Ah well,

Cloning in an area like that is just part of the job. A buddy used to do promotional brochures for Hotels etc. He often had 15 different photographs combined into one, yet standing in front of the Hotel in question, you would never know there was no vantage point from which the picture on the brochure could have been taken. Tress were removed, the sections of the building behind the trees were filled in, eyesores like hydro vaults and power lines were gone, the shrubs obscured by trees added, it can be a lot of work to make a photo look like what you see without the filter your brain puts in front of your eyes.

But it does beg the question... is what you are trying to photograph what's there, or what you saw? I'd certainly argue, make the image look like what you saw. That's what inspired you to take it in the first place. And part of that is removing if possible what you didn't see. You didn't see those things for a reason. The rest of the photo was more compelling. Just remove them.

Yes, removing them is no bother. I've had to add and subtract a few things for clients too. Just feel silly to have not walked to a better vantage point. I was just trying out my new 15mm and wanted to see what I could get with it. I was so excited to see a few clouds over the mountains instead of our usual flat blue sky, I didn't pay attention to the foreground. We have fog today though so I will wait until it rolls out to shoot again.
Thanks for the advice.

Sometimes it is unavoidable to have some undesirable item in the shot. Sometimes all you have to do is go back to the same place, move 100 meters, and reshoot. I agree with you, there is a certain pride involved.

Yes, it's not far from my house so a quick walk over is no bother. Might be lucky and have even nicer clouds. Sometimes it's good to be reminded to pay more attention.

I took my K3 and DAL 35/2.4 out to the Madrid Sunday market (the rastro) today. I continue to be impressed by the AF, dynamic range and IQ in general from this camera.
