Thanks guys ... after a flip-flop-flip ... you've convinced me to go with #1.

I like the second one for its opposites of one rider resting, while the other one is flying high, but it is probably a bit sublime for the WA theme.

Thanks

Need to lose that tyre on his helmet though.
A touch unfortunate.

Definitely the first. And I agree with Paul about the tire.
Looks like you had fun and some great photo ops Kent.

Thanks guys.

+1 @ the tire, but it'll take some doing given the shadows involved. Not sure if I want to put forth the effort for the WA ... which is supposed to be more about the shot, than your extensive PP skills anyway. I'm kinda "on the fence" as to whether the tire removal falls into normal or extensive PP ... that or I'm just lazy & unskilled.

given my patience and level of PS skills, I'd say it falls into "extensive". Is that allowed?
shot is strong even with the extra tire
good luck

Scott, thanks for the vote of confidence.

Took a rudimentary stab at the tire, along with a curves tweak.

As to the tire ... a review of the rules really only addresses the issue as "guidelines" to indicate that the point should remain focused at the photographic effort (albeit clone vs. montage are technically different). I think the removal of the tire only allows for the photographic effort to be more clearly revealed, rather than software efforts becoming the main appeal of the image. In that regard, I think I'm okay with it now.

Excerpt:
Guidelines

Montage techniques are allowed but should be functional and kept to a minimum. Your entries for the weekly assignment should highlight your photographic skills, not your software knowledge.


BTW ... diggin' that the WA rules also tell people to come here for feedback.

Thanks.

Lots of smallish clone stamps, followed by some brush blur. I tried context aware, but I never can get that to work very well for me.

I need Karen or someone to clue me @ how to better harness context aware into something useful.

Definitely a "target rich" environment ... if only I could do it like this more often.
