I was attracted by the symmetry and general tidiness of the area and the sunlight, reflecting off the light coloured paving, seems to give a pleasant non directional lighting to the stonework. The question is " have I seen the light?", in this case the security light - one minute I am tempted to clone it out, then I change my mind - any thoughts?

I would clone it out. It is rather ibvious and out of place. A great pity such things are needed, but an older light fitting could have been used. Otherwise a nice shot of some technical competence. I would have no idea what the rest of the church looked like, so title a little general.

I'm of the opinion these days, prompted by a certain Mr. McFade, that cloning things out isn't such a necessity as I used to think it was. Consequently, I've begun leaving telephone lines and such like in my images because, in actuality, they were there.

In this particular instance, although I'm leaning towards leaving the light where it is, I'm undecided.

There, that was no help whatsoever, was it . . . ?

I most certainly would clone it out. It looks out of place and there is absolutely no necessity to leave it in. You are not recording as "As is" record shot but attempting to create a pleasing picture, as per your 'description'.

This door would make for a nice backdrop for pictures of a bride & groom.

Cloning out certain objects depends onthe purpose of the image. If pictorial, then removing certain items is a good idea. If pure record, leave them in. Up toyou, actually.

The image is lovely, lots of shape and texture, and I love old doors.
If it were mine, I would clone out the light. My reasoning is that it spoils the overall effect because it isn't old, and the chances of someone saying, "There is a light missing" is extremely unlikely.
