    Calendar of Architecture

    Calendar of Architecture
    After many years of wanting to create a calendar solely of architecture, I will be donating my time and images to create a calendar of local historical buildings. Their organization will be the ones selling the calendars to fund their non-profit dedicated to preserving the village's history. And I know they can definitely put the money to use. This came after I approached them and offered to do this (so I wasn't asked). I find I tend to grow in my editing knowledge when working on this type of project. Photos will take place over the next 15 or so months for a 2023 calendar.

    So my question is this: Do I try to remove as many of the wires as possible in the images? Although this particular photo won't be one for the calendar, it gives a good idea of what I'm up against. It would be tedious to clone stamp the roofs. Many of these buildings are extremely close to the roadway, and those wires run parallel very close to the buildings.

    For this particular building, it simply isn't possible to take a frontal shot without having the wires show up with the roof. They will definitely want photos of the buildings' facades. What are your thoughts?

    Great project! Looking forward to see how it progresses.
    I will just throw one possibility out there stitched shots might work in some cases. I used the concept once on a train station for that very reason. Can't they be removed in Photoshop without cloning?

    Some of them might be able to be removed more easily than others - I just don't know how tedious it may become as I haven't yet checked out all the angles from which to shoot.

    Thanks for the suggestion on stitching. I haven't yet attempted it but will definitely consider it.

    IMO get rid of the wires. If you are not comfortable removing the wires I am sure you could find
    someone to do the job.

    The wires are very distracting in that photo. It was the first thing that caught my eye, therefore I think it would be worthwhile removing them.
    Congrats on the project!

    Yeah, I know it's gonna be a royal pain to remove them but agree it will probably be best to do so.

    Here is a frontal view. I will have to see which one might be easier to edit when the time comes.

    These two images were taken a month apart. Personally I like the vantage point of the first one much better. It makes the image more dynamic IMHO.

    I agree. The first image is much more interesting. Now to get rid of those darn wires!

    If it were my project, the wires would have to go. Remember what the subject is here and remove what distracts. That may include that yellow road sign on the left side too.

    Let me explain how I went about the task. I my case I was able to stand under the wires and get the required photos to stitch. Don't know if you have the room as this structure is two story.
    There are quite a few tips on how to remove power lines in Photoshop using content aware fill. Of course they always make it look easy and since I don't use Photoshop can't comment on how well it works.
