Truth if truth were needed that I am not the sharpest tool in the box when it comes to t'internet but for the life in me I can't find the "Gallery" link to look at photo's on this website, I know its staring me in the face, I just can't see it, help please!!
It really isn't all that lonely. When I was out there taking photos a few years ago, there were too many people around to work comfortably. It wasn't Grand Central Station, but even a few passers-by get in the way. Besides the walkers on the footpath, there was another photographer who started out in the stream where he wasn't a problem, but then he went up on the bridge right in the center of my frame and stayed there so long that I was running out of time. I finally took my photo regardless and cloned him out later.
I've had the same thought about having my ashes scattered there, but the logistics of getting them and someone to scatter them there from the States have eluded me so far. Ideas, anyone?
It's also the process of replacing sections of photos with pixels from the surrounding area of the image in order to remove the original section, using Photoshop's clone tool. In addition to removing photo-bombing people, it's handy for getting rid of rubbish, and that's mostly what I use it for. In the case of the photographer on the bridge, I zoomed in to work at pixel level to ensure that he was totally removed. I know, sounds bloodthirsty!
