A Robin in my back garden.

This is very nicely done Alexandra. I left you a note on your last shot about enabling Modifications, - you can do it with both shots, but for sure the last one so we can show you what we mean in comments. You open your shot, find Options, select EDIT, then Options again, and you will find the modifications box at the top, click it, then Save Changes lower down, - thats it. This gets the best value from the E2 membership.
Hop, hop, hopping ...
great shot..was he really hopping or have you cloned out a twig?
Thank you all Yes, I have now enabled modifications.
And no I did not clone out any twigs, it was actually hopping
A brilliantly timed shot - this made me smile!
I like the way you've colour selected the Robin, it really makes him stand out from his surroundings!
With the mod, I adjusted the 'lighting' and 'contrast', just a few small tweaks to give it a little depth. I then cropped off the fuzzy bit on the right. I felt the holly added something to the shot, so I left that. Using the 'clone' and 'heal' tools I removed the line which was above the Robin and a few droppings from the large branch. After re-sizing and giving it a bit of a sharpen this is the result!
Thanks for allowing 'mods', great fun!
(click on the small picture and a bigger one will pop up! )
Thank you! I really like what you have done with it! I tried many times to fully remove the washing line (on Photoshop CS5) but I'm not too great at working it. Thanks again
!!....lovely shot !!!....jumping for joy ?, or hopping mad ?
See, - mods work!. To get rid of that line, use the PATCH tool; its the sixth tool from the top on the left, and you will need to right click the tool thats there to reveal the patch tool; it looks like a patch; then select it; draw a selection close to the line all along it, - or to the first leaf; then drag your selection straight up wards and release the mouse; the area with the line should be improved; you may need a little cloning to clean up. The the area after the leaf can be sorted out the same way.
Another approach: using the marquee selection tool; second from the top, will look like a dotted square; if theres another shape there, right click the toolbox to show the other hidden tools and select the marquee; then draw a rectangle under the line, to the left of the leaf; then copy (control-C) and paste (control-V); this will leave a copy of your selection right on top of where you selected, so you wont see it until you move it; so select the move tool, - the top tool, place it where you copied, and then drag the copy over the line; you can feather the marquee tool first, - theres a box along the top bar with father set to 0 pixels, - enter 2 or 3 before you use the tool, - it will allow the copy to blend better as its edges will be feathered, or soft.
Give it a try,
Thanks! I will try that in the future
I used Photoshop Elements 9. I zoomed right in and using the 'clone' tool at about 5 pixels I selected just under the line - then carefully wiped along the line (I regularly change the selection area to keep everything looking natural and not repeating).
I don't think it matters which method you use, as long as it doesn't show!
Thank you very much I've been trying to get rid of the line properly for quite a while!
