Sunsets and Photoshop
On January 2nd we had a very colorful sunset. I had just enough time to walk to the back yard and snap off a few images. Unfortunately, this view is marred with power and telephone lines.
The most recent versions of Adobe Photoshop have a feature called "Content Aware Fill". This capability tries to analyze the content bordering an area to be filled and attempts to fill that area with content that matches the surrounding area. In some circumstances, this fails completely, but in others works amazingly well. When used on the above sunset image to erase the power and telephone lines, I believe it worked very well to produce a much better image.
