    I hope this is the correct section. If it is not, fell free to move it to the appropriate place, mods :)


    I have been trying to work on a photo i took a friend but am having trouble making it look natural. He really liked this photo but thought it would look less distracting with out the big shelf behind his head. I first tried removing the shelf by deleting it then doing a gradiant from one side of the wall to the other (matching each tone of the wall), blurring, smoothing and whatnot, but i am having trouble is making it look natural around his head/hair.

    Any suggestions on technique or anyone out there willing to give it a try? :D

    Thanks!

    :( thats ok, if you get a chance that would be great!

    Instead of removing the whole shelf, i was able to make it look decent by just removing the stuff on the shelf (and the water bottle reflection) :D


    How does this look? larger
