    Hello Gert,

    I'm afraid that this is a very quick (and not very expert) attempt at ridding your photograph of that horrid white plastic plate! I simply used the clone tool, trying to "line up" the boards in the floor of the boat and then, because part of the boy's left foot was "missing", I tried to "copy" some grass over it from the other side of the boat. Not very well done, I'm afraid, but at least that white object no longer takes attention from the boy's face.

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Rosemary,

    After our discussion, I've done a very quick workshop for you.

    First of all, in Elements, I did Image > Rotate > Custom and rotated the image 0.6 counterclockwise so that the left vertical "edge" of the tunnel was indeed vertical. Then I did Image > Transform > Distort and "pulled up" the bottom right corner - that seemed to level the roadway pretty well, especially looking into the distance. Then Layer > Flatten Image. Then, because I'd "lost" a little with the rotation and transformation, I cropped it just a tad all around and that seemed to be successful in bringing those "lines" into the bottom corners pretty effectively too.

    So there you go. See what you think!

    Kindest Regards,

    John.

    Hi Ray,

    As I said, I hope you won't be offended by my "playing around" with your picture.

    I've used one or two layer masks here, basically trying to darken the sky a little and to brighten up the foreground too. I think the sky was probably overexposed a little so (unless you still have the RAW file to work from) there's not the "information" in the sky to be able to retrieve it.

    Once again, I hope you're not offended by this - but see what you think - perhaps you think it now looks nothing like what you actually saw the day you took this one!

    Best Wishes,

    John.

    Hi Will,

    I saw your picture and I simply couldn't resist looking through some of my pictures from Portugal from last year. We stayed for two weeks at the lovely (though, sadly, nowadays somewhat notorious) little port of Praia da Luz but we did spend one day in Lagos, so here's a very mediocre snapshot from Logos harbour for you. Yes, there has been quite a change from when you took your photograph - lots and lots of concrete, a harbour full of pleasure boats rather than fishing craft, a long promenade, ice cream stalls, souvenir stalls - just the sorts of things I know you really love!!

    Best Wishes,

    John.

    This is a sub-contrabass flute in G which has a pipe length of nearly 15 feet and stands seven and a half feet tall and is played with the flautist standing up! It plays three and a half octaves below the piccolo.
