Like the lighting and the rich colors. The only thing that might be missing is something a little darker in the background that would help define the shape of his nose around that white patch on his muzzle.

Dan; I would suggest another technique along with what Dan both the above said. First, duplicate the original so that you don't lose it and then work on the copy. Here, I used the quick select tool (works only where you have a really clean background and good contrast between background and subject) to select the background. Invert selection and then press ctrl-J to put the statue, bldgs, ets, on their own layer.

Now, hold down the ctrl key and click on image in the new statue layer. This will reselect the statue. Now highlight the copy layer and hit delete. This removes the foreground from the copy layer.

Now, click the eye to the left of both the statue layer and the original layer. you should have only the copy layer showing with a hole where the foreground objects were.

You can now use the content-aware fill tool to fill in the holes. Also by having the background on its own layer, you can play with color, contrast, etc. to best bring out the clouds.

This sounds confusing but it actually only takes a couple of minutes. Here's my results.

And... I think we have a winner. I will have to try that out, thanks!

Hello everyone, back in this forum after about half a year of inactivity. My 60D has been a delight to use and over the months I've been able to learn more and more as I've carried it around Indonesia. Two shots:

Ha ha, Yeah...I know that joke :-)

I agree about the nosepart, should have moved a bit to the left so the pole would have
been behind his nose instead.

Nice ^^ Congrats on the new purchase! Looks like you moved up from the 1000D (XS) like I did.

Hi kozal01, thank you! You are correct, I should to update my signature.... I waited for long time for something like 70D, but finally I got to 60D... and I don't regret...
