Very creative, Joy. The title is perfect for it's retro style. It almost feels like a graphic poster. Well done!

I sit here on a rainy Saturday morning drinking my coffee and I see this and had a great laugh. The title could not fit this image any better. Great job Joy!!!

I love this, Joy! Very home-spun and simple yet beautiful. Did you need to clone out any distractions?

Wow, How did you learn how to do this?

It takes a bit of work but worth it. You have to "isolate" the area you want removed (using the magic wand) and then "clone" in what you want to replace it with using the "clone stamp tool". The worst part is isolating the "garbage." Most of what I have learned on Photoshop is through hit and miss and figuring out what the tools are used for. My son is excellent with this program but he has just given me the basics. I've even amazed myself!!! Your images are amazing - doesn't look like you need too much help!!! If you have any questions, I can try to answer them (don't guarantee I'll know what I'm talking about, but would give it a try). Any time.

Thanks Joy, Maybe I'll try the hit and miss approach. . That magic wand is a hard tool though. I have never been able to figure it out and it takes forever to do what ever it does.

Sometimes if it's a big area you can isolate it by using the lasso tool but you have to have a pretty steady hand and then touch up the other areas afterwards. I'm sure there's a simpler way to do it, but I haven't figured it out, yet!!!

Joy, I have to comment again now that I've seen the original--very nice PS work but more importantly is that you visualized what a great image you would have when done. It reminds me a bit of when the photographer drove off at the end of "The bridges of Madison county" movie. I also need to mention that if you (anyone) can part with $295.00 (he'll take it in three payments), Jim's PS for Photographers on-line class in very good and will get you over the hump with Photoshop. That's how I finely got so I could use it to my benefit.

I still can't get over what a good job you did on this image. It reminds me of one of the older Chevy adds of the past! How inspiring!

Thank you both so much, Suzie and Lorraine. I'm really happy that all of you have seen what I saw when I was in traffic behind this classic couple in their classic chevrolet!

Hey Donna - thank you very much. I'm going to re-enter it tomorrow because I've cleaned it up a little bit more - things I didn't see (probably because I looked at it sooooo long) and then noticed after downloading. Even if it doesn't win anything, it was worth the great comments I have gotten from you and the rest of the wonderful photographers at BP!

Hi Joy....
"where have I been?" I've just been busy researching lenses, support systems, backpacks, cleaning supplies, etc...will it ever end?? You get a camera...then you need lenses...then you need cleaning materials for cleaning CCDs and lens glass...then you need extra storage...then you need a better tripod...then you need... rechargeable batteries...then you need..........Maybe it will end soon! Thanks for asking!

I love this. This photo was my inspiration this weekend while taking a drive. I captured something similar only different. Imitation is the sweetest form of flattery. Nice shot!
