During our travels we visited Mystic Seaport in Mystic CT.
One of the costumed guides had on this lovely outfit and her pose was perfect, but I didn't like the jarring effect of the modern sign.
Oh what to do? Well, remove it of course! Then I used the selection tool to capture her and inverted it so I could apply a glaussian blur to the background.
This has two benefits. It softens the background to make her more prominent and also covers up any cloning errors I made removing the sign.
