Better After Friday #1

Welcome to my first ever Better After Friday!
Here I will showcase before and after images!
I also LOVE B&W so expect to see lots of it!
(if you're wondering, I changed it from Sunday because my timelines didn't work for challenges!)

Today's image is from a recent session at the families home. Shooting on-location means being unable to control the environment for the shoot! We decided to play around in the front yard on the couples' bike. In this particular image my own vehicle is in the background. 

Some creative cloning (In Adobe Photoshop CS4) and it's gone!
I have some worse ones from the shoot, and I may feature another next week. 
 I have to admit, I rarely have to do much editing on my photos other than basic adjustments. But in situations like this, I shoot to get the shot I want, and still keep my photoshop hours limited!

2. Cloning and basic adjustments
