I had to drive back to St Paul to deal with some things for my boss, so I installed the CS6 upgrade, downloaded the pics from the camera, and started working on them. Photoshop is magic; don’t ever let anyone tell you differently.
In this first picture, there was a transformer on the right side of the photo near the top. Using content-aware, I made it go away. Instantly! The wire that ran across the front of the barn to that transformer? Gone, by virtue of the spot healing brush: Paint it along the wire and it vanishes.
One one of the back roads, I spotted this hunk driving his team across a field. Had to stop and get some photos! You don’t see this often unless you’re in an area populated by Amish. I didn’t make anything magically disappear in this shot; just put it through normal processing to bring out color and detail.
Back to Wisconsin later today. I hope to have more pictures when I return on Saturday.
