I requested a validation on this, because the top third of the grass is all cloned. As I stated in my comment below, it looks like there was at least a fence there. It could have been anything though, and the cloning was blatantly obvious unfortunately. A simple fence clone is probably just fine, but what if it had been a bunch of houses in the distance that were removed? What about a road? Bunch of cows? I had to ask, not because I didn't like it or that I were jealous, but because there was evidence left. If the validation request was actually issued apparently the SC was curious too.

I'm actually really surprised this cloning came from someone that's such an excellent editor.


Agreed on the sloppy job of cloning. It was a last minute thing, late at night, and I was too tired to spend too much time on it, so I didn't even notice I did such a poor job on it, however nothing was removed from the image. I was fixing something minor in the grass and didn't even notice how much damage I caused to the image until you brought it to my attention. The image was called for validation during voting and was validated with no problems, so no fence or any object was removed from the original image.

I love the picture, but I am not a big fan of the border.

I'd really like this except it appears that there was some sloppy cloning done in the grass. Did you clone out a fence?
