Photoshop's Content Aware Move Tool

The Content Aware Move Tool.  This was my first use of the Content Aware Move Tool.  I know that it has been around for a while, but I just haven't had any need to use it until now.  Lynn and I were returning to Denver recently from Moab along Scenic Highway 128 which runs along the Colorado River.  The landscape along the road is spectacular.  I noticed these riders on horseback draped by the picturesque mountains on the south side of the highway.  I made a quick U-turn to get the photo below.  By the time that I was able to get my shot the riders had advanced to the right side  of my photo.  While editing this particular photo I marked it to return to for additional editing in Photoshop CC.  I selected the riders and their dust with the Content Aware Move Tool and I was able to move them to the left in the photo so that they would be seen entering the scene.  I think that this photo (above) has a lot more impact.  What do you think?
