Before and After


I know the rules . . . and you don’t have to pick me, because I didn’t take this picture.  But I did edit it . . . and I wanted to share this with you wonderful readers!

But my BFF took this picture to try to capture the sunset, and captured some other things as well. 

. . .like the fence.

SOOC – although it was not my camera.

FINAL EDIT

Of course, before anything I had to get rid of the fence . . . I used the Clone Tool in Corel PhotoPaint.

I used Corel PhotoPaint and a two-step process to fix the sunset in the background layer and then fix the couple in the second layer.  Then I added a sun flare because the sun was a little faded.  I also ran it through LightRoom just to blend everything together and for the crop.

Here are some other versions I experimented with first.

  2. You did a great job. Removing the fence alone is hard enough. I love how it turned out.
