I straightened the building using the straighten tool against one of the columns. Cloned out the people walking around the building. Used the burn in effect to darken the trees, columns, water and reflection. I also darkened the sky. Cropped and Sharpened.

Beautifully done Carol. I need to go there, but my husband would rather go to the Eastern Sierra or Yosemite than San Francisco. This gives me incentive to try again, once fall is over. #10356724
