Here is our original file. The new version of this digital asset required I remove some componets.
Versioning is quite common in our premedia industry.

The client asked that I remove all the metal frame work as well as the textured shower door.
Thus leaving a completely exposed tiled shower and all the accompanied hardware.

My first step was to do all the appropriate masking required to color correct,
digial retouch, and digital image manipulation.

Once the image was masked I used Adobe Photoshops Content Aware Scaling, Vanishing Point, Object Transform,
Delicate Airbrushing via a Wacom Intuos Tablet, and selective layers with precise masking.

Here is the final image with all premedia color retouch and digital manipulation applied:
