Nice tutorial. Though the example image, the clone tool with the leaves doesn't look right, as the pole on the left should lead to an awning that leaves a shadow. Cloning one of the other awnings over it would look less odd. Though it is a small detail most people would not have noticed. Not sure if I would have noticed if I hadn't seen the process.

I really appreciate this tutorial. It's very helpful to met to learn about other photographer's post processing work flow. I am still learning my way around image editing software and this gives me a great starting point.

Thanks for the insight to your workflow, Do you mostly shoot from the hip?

Not mostly...Only when I don't want to be noticed :)

interesting, but is it still street photography, or digitalart, photomanipulation?

Thank you very much for your question Tom! :)

According to Wikipedia:
1) Digital art most commonly refers to art created on a computer in digital form. In an expanded sense, "digital art" is a term applied to contemporary art that uses the methods of mass production or digital media.

2)Photo manipulation is the application of image editing techniques to photographs in order to create an illusion or deception (in contrast to mere enhancement or correction), through analog or digital means. Its uses, cultural impact, and ethical concerns have made it a subject of interest beyond the technical process and skills involved
1) The image was definitely created in a camera, not in a computer. It was processed in a computer.

2) We cannot see any illusions or deceptions created in this image. On the contrary we can see enhancements and corrections.

well, for me your manip correspond to both categories 1 and 2 :D

1 a part of the image (and not a small one) is created on computer
2 you create with the manip illusion and deceptions...

you couldn't do that using only traditional film....
well, it's my oldschool side, street photo is no crop, no manip, except adjusting contrast.... straight street photography art ;)

By dA definition photo-manipulation is using TWO OR MORE IMAGES to create one, weather it was illusion or deception. That you can easily to and in the traditional dark room with traditional film. This is not the case here. Only one image was PROCESSED in the computer and processing was in order to enhance the moment already captured (by that I mean and the small cloning part). This was "straight" photography by Brian definition. Photoshop is dark room of today...why not use it?

each one has his own definition for photo-manip ;)
I'm not against manips, i just think they don't have their place in street photography ;)
think the art in street photo is to control all elements before the shot, and if the pic has a failing, just delete it, or it's digital art, or manipulation...

t'abuse un peu, tout contrôler dans la rue...

je préfère me laisser surprendre personnellement, c'est plus poétique de laisser la chance venir à moi ou même de la provoquer.

Ensuite se servir de son expérience pour apprendre à cadrer vite et bien, là oui...
beaucoup de grand on recardé leurs images ou bien bosser sévère au tirage. Faire une image bien du premier coup c'est bien aussi, mais bon on file dans un débat qui n'est plus de notre temps, ou l'informatique est complètement intégré à la maison...
