    Late Autumn Fishing

    In the late autumn, fishing on the White River is a favorite pastime for some folks in Branson, Missouri. Others like to take the scenic railroad ride through the neighboring mountains.

    Seems a tad over-sharp to me. Is it possible to clone out the figure behind the seated man's head?

    Hi Chris. Thank you for the feedback! I can see sharpening halos in the original SOOC JPEG image and I beleive the DeJpeg plug-in does some sharpening as it is removing JPEG artifacts. Other than that, the only sharpening that was done was for downsizing output using unsharp at 100 and 0.3 pixels.

    I checked the before and after PP (before downsizing) and the increased contrast gives an appearance of being sharper. It also tends to accentuate the camera's JPEG conversion halos.

    Here it is after cloning and without any output sharpening. You can still see the halos I'm afraid.

    I'm finding a fair amount of JPEG Ccompression artifacts in these earlier images as well as sharpening halos. Glad I'm shooting strictly RAW now so I can avoid many of these JPEG issues.

    The removal of that figure was definitely worth doing. Everything looks clear and well balanced now.

    Hmmm, thin end of the wedge isn't it?

    I have to say this shot demonstrates why I don't 'do' landscapes, there's usually always far too much in the shot

    All we need is the river, bridge, train, fisherman, piles and the basic composition.

    Thus I'd remove;
    that jetty/pontoon and its bridge
    the tree
    the houses on the far bank and all their jetties, etc.

    Ideally, I do that in real life, not by cloning
    i.e. the problem is the scene, not the photograph

    Gosh, I'm not very 'goodwill to all men' tonight am I?

    In short, the scene is too busy to be really effective. Sounds like it needs to be a simpler composition. OK. I can learn that lesson and apply it as I go forward. Thanks Geoff, Chris, and Dave.
