A few days ago John and Lea (JohnandLea) made a comment on a previous shot I had worked on where I removed people, busses and cars from a shot in Tiananmen Square with Eric standing out in front.  They said they wondered how he could find a time that there were so few people there.  Then they discovered that it was one of my “fixed” shots.  They let me know that they would be pleased if I could find a shot or two of theirs to work on.  So I looked through their gallery and found that they too had visited Tiananmen Square back in July 2007 when it really was empty. Or at least it was after I offered chocolate to all the folks and they moved a half block over and out of the shots.   But I really wanted them together too so I moved her over into the same shot with him. :)

And for those of you who are looking very close, yes his shot is slightly darker than hers and so I had to even out the paving stones and keep the lines from the edges of each stone lined up properly.  I also had to create her feet, especially the left foot. And that darn waste basket near the wall was hard to replace. If you see any other details I missed or got wrong, please let me know. That's what makes this so fun. ;)
