In this retouching project, I was challenged to take an ordinary snapshot of this building, and clear it of the distractions that take away from its beauty. In the original photo, the scene is littered with extra light poles, tourists, and antennae. The blue sky is ordinary and lacking in visual interest.
To give this photo a makeover, I cloned out all the tourists and unattractive objects in the landscape and replaced the clear sky with a more dramatic cloudy one. Free of distractions, the viewer can now enjoy the picturesque castle.
