Content Aware

I was able to go to Photoshop World in 2010. It takes place in Las Vegas. Since I have never been there before, I enjoyed playing the tourist. I spent part of my time snapping random photos. In front of the MGM Grand Hotel is a big golden lion. Of course I couldn’t resist photographing it. When I got home I could help but to notice that there were a thousand distracting elements in the photo. Ah… but what a great photo to practice content aware on.

I used a combination of “content aware fill” and cloning.
