Illinois-based photographer Paul Frederiksen posted a photo of the Domino Sugar factory in Baltimore to the /r/photography IRC channel but he wasn’t happy with it because a crane was obstructing the view. He wanted a clear shot of the building but the crane had been parked there for months and wasn’t going anywhere.
UK-based photographer Denyer stepped in and said he could Photoshop it out. Frederiksen laughed and said it was impossible. Denyer took that as a challenge and went for it. Here’s the result.

Denyer admits there were a few more bits to do, but he hit his self imposed time limit (2 hours) so he left it there.
Here’s a 4-minute timelapse video of Denyer photoshopping the crane out. Observe the tricks and methods he uses.
