One day coming from after work ... my boy was all smiley face when he saw me - quickly took my camera out and snapped him! I loved the idea of the frame itself though not as much as the end result due to the reflection.

For those of you Photoshop gurus, do you think I could remove my reflection?

Do you know of a good video tutorial that teaches how to do this? I understand that using blending modes could help ... but not sure how.

Awwww, cute. Smile I agree that the reflections are rather distracting, though, as is the green cast around his eyes caused by them being lit through the green stained glass.

I'm afraid I lack the Photoshop skills to edit out the reflections. In theory, you could have reduced them by using a polarizing filter when you took the shot but that's not really a practical suggestion for a spontaneous shot like this...

On a separate note, the subject here is largely symmetrical — the pattern in the glass is and faces are too, more or less, and your son is roughly centred on the window. That suggests to me that a symmetrical composition might work better — in this case, I'd probably go for a square-ish crop with your son in the centre of the frame.

thanks for your comment! I agree with the symetry. Though if I crop it to the right, i'll loose some form/shape on the red flower... This happens already on the left hand side - oh well... it was indeed a quick snap.
