We have a beautiful gate at the entrance of our back yard, created for us by a very talented friend.
I looked out the window a few days ago, and saw snow hugging the beautiful lines of the gate. It was a stunning graphic effect, begging to be captured in a photo.
But even as I took the photograph, I knew those lines were obscured by the “interference” of other objects. I couldn’t hold up a sheet behind it to block out everything but the gate–my arm just isn’t long enough.

When I took the photo into Photoshop Elements, I drew lines and squiggles all over anything I didn’t want in the picture. Then I did my classic copy, flip and line up the mirror images (plus a few other little tricks).
I quite like the result.
