Of course, it is not the tree's fault that it bisects the image. Unfortunately, it also runs right through the bottom of the waterfall.
My solution in the last post was to try a bit of cropping off the bottom so as to move the trees down from the middle of the image. This was accomplished by cropping with a 4:3 aspect ratio instead of 3:2. But the fact remains that the top tree runs through the bottom of the waterfall.
Since I have little proficiency in photoshop, I figured this was the best I could do. But I tried using "Content Aware" in PS5. It was amazing. In a total of 10 minutes I was able to remove the tree in question plus another small fallen tree on the right, near the top of the waterfall. I even removed much of the chain link fence that is at the top of the waterfall on the left.
I like the result much better:
Now I need to decide if cropping at the bottom as shown in the image below, strengthens the image.
What do you think?
