Sometimes you are just a tad late with a trigger. Or you forgot to switch back from Macro to Normal mode. Perhaps you shot something using wrong White Balance, or used an inadequate Program Mode. Maybe it was just badly framed... Let's see how you deal with botched photos to save what can be saved. Show us such pictures spliced together: the ORIGINAL and the REPAIRED. If you want, describe what you have done to salvage the shot. Please read carefully and observe all of the rules!

I only had this one winterday to take some pictures of the car. I liked the light and the wet concrete floor on top of the parking lot; unfortunately the car was dirty and had the wintertyres on, also the background was a bit buisy and the sky was flat. So I first cut anything distracting out of the background and attached the car with the proper 18" wheels from a picture taken earlier in summer. The reflections on the ground were also enhanced and I cleaned up the car with some stamping. After some contrast correction, I finaly gave the sky a little more dramatic gradient darkening and cropped the image for a better composition.
