Just because

Every time I take a trip to Volant Pa. I always take pictures of the same things. For example I always take a picture of this



and then I do things like this.
In the original picture I didn't like the fact that you could see a part of the building that was right next to this. I copied a section on the right side of the picture and pasted it on to the left side to cover that up. Then I did all kinds of crazy stuff that I can't remember and it ended up looking the way it does. Originally I liked the way it looked. I was rather tired though when I was doing it and now I'm not so sure I like it any more. This may require more wasted time spent with photoshop elements. It's a rough life I tell ya.

It's really pretty. I see the building at the side. When that happens to me, I just crop it off.

That's a great photo effect, Ann!
It looks like a special paint technique :)

i like the popping the one side to the other, i have done that a lot. once someone had a really good photo of the couple at a dance in front of a curtain, the other side was ugly. she said can you fix this? i said i can put the curtain on both sides, and i did and they loved it. just like you did this. stop posting things you played with because it poses a challenge to ME

Hey, you did good in making that other building disappear! Now, if we could only do some of that magic in real life...

It is indeed a lovely sight to behold--with or without your wonderful editing talents.

I love it! I agree with Duni that it looks like a paint technique.

What a great idea. I like how you were able to remove the building. I am still trying to learn how to do these kind of things.
I am a slow learner sometimes.

If you're having fun then you aren't wasting your time. Just saying. Perhaps have Duke work on it a bit too.

We're home from Indiana. It's good to be home, and even better to see our Little Bit.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

I didn't even see the building in the first photo! Pretty cool special effects though!

As I told Sandra I am beginning to wonder if ever picture in the world is altered? How do you know what is real or not anymore.

Okay I loved what you did with the picture - the second one is so pretty.

Love, sandie

I like the cut & paste job you did...It looks like it was planned that way. I spent about two hours removing some distracting background out of a photo of my niece's new baby. Not sure why...I have no plans on printing it. I was pleased with the results though.

Very cute. You always do such pretty things when you play with pix.

I'm with Sandra - quit making me work and learn how to do things! :)
