Hi all, the main goal of this post is for me to learn how to do this, not to have someone else do it for me. I consider myself as a beginner with Lightroom, and of course I would like to learn more.
I took this photo this week of my boyfriend and I, and I really like this photo as it is, though there is still a lot of vegetation causing distractions. I don't know how feasible is to remove the vegetation under the tree (the left side I guess it is nearly impossible). Is this even possible to do in Lightroom, or only in Photoshop?
Any tips are more than welcome, but ultimately I would like to learn how to improve this photo.
You can't do that in Lightroom - you'd need Photoshp and a lot of time.
Lightroom and its spotting tool would be more suitable if you just wanted to remove an isolated branch. But here you've got a lot of foliage and, just as importantly, very little "clean" water to use as a source for cloning.
I had another photo from a closer perspective, without so much vegetation, so I played a bit with photoshop and I came up to this. Far from perfect, but I like it! I still prefer the original photo though, but it is fun to try some compositions.
