Waiting at the Airport


Waiting at the Airport

I hate waiting around! Having to arrive 2-3 hours early at airports just kills me. So, with E-3 in hand, I restlessly wandered around the McGhee-Tyson Airport in Knoxville, TN and came across this amazing scene of the lone chair bathed in light and surrounded by shadows.

Nice shot Ron.
If it had been me, I would have cloned out the small oblong thing on the bottom right tile.

I tried that, but my PhotoShop skills leave a little ( a lot!) to be desired. It just never looked right to me after cloning. By the way, it is an electric outlet.

Thanks for commenting!

Love the shot. Do you ever get bothered by the security folks? I've been tempted to do the same thing, but chicken out.

Like it, especially the composition, shadows and colour combine well.

Nice composition !

OK OK, so I'm still learning!

Dave, I decided to take your advice as well as others that have made the same suggestion. So I contacted a fellow photog that knows his PS and he showed me some tips. I have now removed that nasty ol' outlet and the wall is now blemish free! Thanks for taking time to comment on my image! Ron
