    <p>Well, it’s an interesting start.  I think for this view, I would clone out the locks and latches, which are too distracting.  I’d like to see a tighter shot.  But you definitely saw something good there.</p>

    Thank you, Paul. Still vacillating in general when it is okay to clone out something, when it is not. Things that we would not put in a painting should be removed if they really distract (or, we simply do not have a shot worth fiddling with), but things that are not too distracting tell the viewer it is a photograph, which I also like to do.

    I agree with Paul, but if you don’t want to clone them out, you could try lowering the brightness so they aren’t so intrusive.

    My vote as well. The drops are pretty, but there are too many conflicting elements.

    <p>Agreed. I’d also clone out the other lock.  You’re creating art here, with the camera and your computer the brushes. This isn’t photojournalism so I wouldn’t have any compunction about removing distracting elements in the name of art.</p>
