Removing Reflections from Nighttime Time-lapse

I find myself traveling a lot… as such I can get some pretty great views. One of my favorite shots to get is a nighttime time-lapse of the cityscape.

The key is to turn off all the lights in your room and sit in the dark.

Even still, long exposure times (which are key to the light streaks seen above) can lead to invisible blemishes coming into the shot.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to use Camera Raw in Photoshop to repair the unwanted reflections.  The key is to use a brush stroke to paint in some extra adjustments.
