I am hoping this is the right place to post this. I recently took a trip to Mississippi(I live in Texas) and I was on a lot of back roads and saw this old church up on a hill. I zoomed in on it, and snapped the pic. I edited out the electrical wires and a propane tank to make it look "older" I love the way it turned out. I painted and old wood picture frame black, framed it and use my DD dymo label maker and gave it to a friend of mine for Christmas. She loved it(sorry no pics of it framed.

I know it's not so 'artsy' to photoshop a pic, but I'm old school and still learning photoshop techniques(my kids know more than I do..lol)

This is a nice shot! The church is so pretty. Feels very "settler" ish.

The biggest piece of photoshop advice I'd give you is to watch out for repeating shapes when you're cloning out wires or other things. It helps to sample from many different areas so that you get a congruent look.

Thank you very much for the advice. I'm still learning and playing around with new gadgets. The software I am using, i am having to learn it as I go. I can tell that I cloned the area and I do see the repetition areas that don't look "normal"

Thanks!!!
