    you need to clone it or paint over it in the same colour-cloming wpould ne a better option, You need an editting program for this. gimp is free, you possibly can use that to clone-I use photoshop elements which is about $80

    i tried the cloning on photoshop, and it ruins the gradual colorincrease of the sky. (or maybe i'm just not doing it correctly)

    you need to have the clone brush as small as the obcect you are cloning on a bout 70% with a feathered edged brush seect the area right next to the lampost and go over the post until it disappears. once the posts are gone you could use the clear sky where the posts were to clone the rest. but is it woth it?

    The spot healing brush averages the surrounding tones graduations and attempts to match... you need PS CS3 I beleive. It does work a treat mostly... usually...

    Make a selection of the area to paint over, feather the selection edges by a couple pixels, then use the gradient fill tool to recreate the sky,
