The Photograph That Changed It All…

I was editing a photograph, I took in Put-in Bay, in Lightroom 6. However hard I may try using the spot healing brush in LR 6 I was not able to get rid of the ugly power lines cutting across the center right hand side of the photograph and ruining the look and feel. Then I was reminded of Rajan Parrikar‘s words from his post ‘Chamundeshwari of Pilgaon‘ on his blog:

Enter Miss Photoshop. Eliminating the intruding lines is now trivial: trace a path, then stroke it with the spot healing brush in “content-aware fill” mode and voila!

And I decided to give Miss Photoshop a chance. And from that day on there has been no looking back. Today my default workflow involves basic adjustments in Lightroom and then finer and more refined adjustments in Photoshop using the NIK plugins, now acquired by DxO. Thanks Adobe and team for this incredible tool that you have given us!

Presented below are the straight-out-of-camera and the edited versions of the aforementioned photograph:
