It seems not much has been said about the new features introduced in Lr5.2RC, but I'd like to go on record as saying:

* The feathering capability was greatly needed and makes the new distraction removal feature much more usable.

Still not perfect, but much better - thank you again Adobe...

I don't find it works that well. I still get an obvious transition between the removal position and the surroundings, especially when dragging to make a long, linear removal.

Rob, I posted about the feather on Luminous Landscape http://www.luminous-landscape.com/for.... Perhaps with your expertise you could suggest how I could get better results with the Q brush.

I don't think I'll be able to help much Rory - clearly the basic algorithm hasn't changed, the only difference is the edge is feathered instead of being hard line, which helps make it more usable, but it's not a panacea - not content-aware fill...
