Rain’s coming
This photo is another model shoot with the Harford County Photography MeetUp Group with paid model Carrie Marie Hillegass, photographing sites in Havre de Grace, where I live. This shot was the corner of a building with a “selfie “ spot” of Havre de Grace. In Post-processing I cropped and used the clone tool to take out the asphalt, continuing the cement sidewalk. I used Camera Raw for exposure, texture, then finished with Topaz Sharpen AI and DeNoise AI.
I realize that the model is not looking at me but looking at the rain that’s coming. I like her clear umbrella to match the background. Do you think I should clone out the cracks in the sidewalk? Other suggestions?

Hi Jim! I think that the cracks add something nice to the photo.What if the model's umbrella were straight vertical, a bit lower and a bit more to the left?   Posted: 10/17/2021 08:38:07

Gaetan, if you look very carefully, the shaft of the umbrella in the background and the shaft of the model's umbrella are parallel. The model's head is in the center of the black space. I like that positioning for these reasons. Jim   Posted: 10/19/2021 00:41:19

Excellent photo Jim

I also think that you can leave cracks as they are.

You have done a very good job and I can't think of any room for improvement.

I am not sure why you used f/22 for this photo.   Posted: 10/18/2021 23:15:42

Sam, thank you for your thoughts. I used f/22 fro it s large depth of field to be certain that everything/everyone was in focus. Jim   Posted: 10/19/2021 00:37:35
