Fun with Photoshop

This is an interesting little detail. Editing some photos of a dancer, I have one super wide angle shot taken from a low vantage point. This normally causes straight lines to go all kinds of wonky. In the photo in question, you see in this crop from the side that bay door intruding into the left of the frame at a decidedly skewed angle.

It’s a small enough part of the photo that it wasn’t a huge deal, but it would be better if it wasn’t there. The 20 second solution is Content Aware Fill. Without any further work on my part, what you see below is what Photoshop created to fill that space in.

If you go back and forth between the two, you can see where the changes were made, and identify a few spots that could be better. But when viewers see it as a tiny portion on the edge of the frame, with a dancer in the middle drawing their attention, it is more than sufficient. I’d go so far as to say nobody will ever notice.
