The Kiss

By Danny1970    
This young lady kindly let me photograph her with her gorgeous dog. Is there any way I can remove the car from the right hand side, I have ticked modification so if any one wants to have a go I would really appreciate it as I'd end up making a mess of it.

Cheers Phil, I hadn't thought of using a
white vignette Grin

It would be quite difficult to remove the car as there is nothing in the foreground to clone or blend from. Any modification here would be very obvious and be more distracting than the car itself.
The main subject could be cut out and placed on another suitable background but this would look false due to the falling snow which is a very essential part of the image.
So my suggestion is to use a white vignette which keeps the integrity of the image and reduces the distraction of the car

I sort-of agree with Phil - but there's another way to approach the problem.

Instead of trying to remove the car completely, I've just removed the things that make it a car, rather than a pale blobby bit in the out-of-focus background.

I used the Spot Healing Tool, and dabbed at the windscreen, at the bumper, and the numberplate. The first of these extended the girl's hair oddly, and I attacked that with the Clone tool.

I feel that reduces the impact sufficiently that the residue doesn't distract. You could do a similar thing on the opposite side to even the background up, if you wanted.

Oh to have a little dog again. They have become extinct. A lovely set that makes me smile.

Happy colourful shot. Never even noticed the car until it was mentioned. Then I only saw the car!

Loaded a mod
