I took this photo on a rainy day in San Francisco of Lombard St. last weekend. I took the liberty to take full advantage of the Photoshop CS5 beta to clean it up and remove the majority of the distracting bits (power lines, signs, a few people, etc.). It took a little while and I had to combine different approaches, but I’m really happy with how it turned out.
I can’t wait for the announcement on Monday. I can legally say now that I was/am a CS5 Photoshop beta tester. I joined late in the program and didn’t have nearly as much time as I would have liked to dedicate to testing, but I’ve been very impressed with the new features.
Here’s a quick example of some possibilities of what you can do. It’s nothing too elaborate, but should be impressive if you know what to look for.
