There are time when elements in the image may appear to be distractions and therefore deter from being a powerful image. Hence removing certain elements can be a good thing for your image.

Some might argue that this makes the image fake or unreal but unless you are a journalist working for the news, it really doesn’t matter what you do with the image. The end result is how it makes you feel. Looking at the image below, you can agree the image looks nice. At first glance you won’t think anything has been removed, however if that was the case why would I create this blog post.

Well in this case there is one element that I have removed, can you figure it out. Check out the before and after below by adjusting the slider below.

Which image do you think is the better and powerful one? Let me know your thoughts.
