..in shooting tourist traps, when you don’t want people to clutter your shot, you usually do one of these:
- wake up late / early and shoot when no one’s there
- shoot a bunch of shots and do some “magic” in photoshop
- painstakingly clone them out one by one
..in this case, i just left the scene alone and pressed the shutter..

I can see exactly where you’re going with this, Rian. 😀 I would have left it alone, too. HA!
She works perfectly. Just enough to frame the scene!!!
good call 🙂
Rian, can’t you clone out that distracting godbeam? Just an idea….;>))
I wonder why you didn’t ask her to move? 🙂 Lovely scene.
Very funny and clever commentary and the photo has some great scenery in it.
The framing of this shot is very interesting. I like it a lot
A good choice leaving it alone, cloning is such a pain to do at times, and besides I dont find the rays of light through the clouds distracting at all, or were you thinking of cloning something else out?
I love the shot for the stories that could be written about the girl’s thoughts as she looks over the land and seascape. I shall resist the temptation to make any observations on the shapely curves within the frame….. lovely though they are…
a poetic feeling on this, I like the idea of the composition
I like the expanse of sky and single wave of inspiration!
gotta leave a girly arse like that one alone, nooooo clonestamping!! nice shot my friend!! 🙂
…and it worked! Know what you mean, though!
A really exceptional image, Rian.
Super shot. The legs sure don’t hurt it.
Beautiful landscape … without girl would be better 😉 Do not like the way she is standing there .
Uh…sure Rian, sure.
Nonetheless, this is a great shot!
Love the sun stream in the background!
It’s a very interesting shot left the way it actually was. I’d like it better without her, but it is still very effective.
And you remembered the rule of thirds.
I just realized, we have “the sun” and “the moon” in one picture. You are a true artist!
I love the cheekiness of this photo.
gorgeous light and a beautiful composition
It always feels divine when light breaks through the clouds like this. Quite a sight.
