    I need to get rid of the line (floating rope) at the lower 1/4 of the picture.. This would normally seem easy, but by cloning out a straight line, it is always noticeable... Any help from the pros ??

    thanks, and have fun with it.... :D

    Instead of cloning, use the Healing Brush (assuming you use PS).

    patch tool, click n hold healing brush, select patch tool from the dropdown, draw a selection around the area to clone/heal, let go the tool for marching ants, click the selection and drag it to a similar area, job done. sometimes that healing brush isn't as great as everyone thinks. H

    Oh yea you can get away with murder using the healing brush (not that one recommends "cheating" to this extent, but it is possible):

    (Unless you looked very closely you wouldn't know there were originally eight telephone wires obstructing the shot to begin with. Of course this took a long time to complete.)
    The healing brush can be a godsend though for less extreme applications.

    Depending on the task at hand, you may need to use a combination of the healing tools (brush & patch) and the clone stamp. Maybe you'll need to use a harder or softer brush...maybe you'll need to use a lower opacity and make several passes. You can take out just about anything if you take your time and work carefully.

    actually, the image provided is very simple to be done with the clone stamp

    lower the hardness to 0% up to 40%, this will blend it in,
    Create a new layer and make sure that the stamp tool is on Sample: All layers
    Sample from close to the wire (but not too close.. about 1 inch away)
    and simply brush over it with the stamp tool

    Could i maybe use this image to show this in the form of a Video tutorial? (made strictly for TPF)

    here is my first draft of the video tutorial, once i get a new mic ill re-do it with better sound quality and less "ummm" s
    and more to the point :p
    but yeah im hoping to make a photoshop tutorial series whereby I teach photoshop from opening a document, to the professional retouches (in seperate videos of course, ill try keep it logical, Im gunna write up a Plan for it soon, like which tutorials to do, and what tools to use etc.. so it is in chronological format.)
