Not All Things Are Better With by FireflyPhotosAust Not All Things Are Better With by FireflyPhotosAust
...Coke

In 1963 (before I was born) the US Coca Cola slogan was "Things go better with Coke". The same slogan was used in Australia in 1965. This beautiful scene was spoilt by the rubbish left behind by others which goes to show that things are not all better with Coke!!

Little Bay NSW, HDR from 3 bracketed exposures and tone mapped using photomatix pro.

:omg: I see the point you're making, and it really does spoil such a lovely scene! I hope you managed to do another version without the ugly stuff in it, because it would be well worth it :nod:

So it's not only in tiny Malta!
It's quite typical that whilst composing a shot, I realize there's garbage in the frame and that's when I'm lucky to spot it otherwise it's cloning out in PS.

I have wanted to do something like this for so long but didn't have the balls. I have had to remove rubbish out of so many pics of mine. It just upsets me so much that others have so little regard not only for others, but of beautiful things and themselves as well. Hooray for you!!!!!!

I wish those that do it would get the message, but probably won't cause if they had a clue they wouldn't do it in the first place. i remember walking towards a store from the parking lot one day and walked by this parked car and this lady that was sitting in the drivers seat was scratching tickets and throwing them out her window. By the time she got to her third ticket, I went over to the car and picked up the scratched tickets off the ground and threw them back in her car and said "I don't go into your living room and throw my rubbish on your floor don't do it to mine please." :clap:
