Re: Editing Challenge No. 3

Third one from me in a set depicting how it would look at different times of the day: "Daybreak", "Afternoon", and this, "Midday".

Two pass processing using OV3. First pass to edit building, grass and tree for colour and sharpness to taste. The second pass was to get definition in the clouds. The two images were then merged in Elements, parts of the fence cloned out, people cloned out, more definition given to last part of fence, tree moved slightly, and the horizon levelled out with a skew upwards before cropping and resizing back in OV3. Without tweaking the horizon the crop looked lop sided as everything appeared to be tilted over. The "cloning out" took the most time as the "smart" healing brush was not as smart as gentle and careful manual cloning.

There is a cropped and slightly stretched version in my gallery that may provoke some comment but I am not submitting it for the challenge. Or how about one with a horizontal fence? See thumbnails below.
