That's exactly what I had in mind. What were the steps you used? Do I have the required tools in Elements?

I agree that a better background could be inserted. But the photo is for a friend and he wants in his local environment. After taking too many shots I realized I would be asking for help with post-processing.

Ted all I used was the Patch Tool and mostly the Clone Stamp Tool, I actually rushed through it, but if you took your time I'm sure you would do a much better job than I did. It's a long time since I used Elements , but I'm pretty sure those two tool's are available.

Thanx Patsy,

Elements has a Clone Stamp Tool.  I've used it for simple things like telephone wires, but when I tried on this image it looked worse not better.  So I need to practise, practise, practise.

Google tells me that Elements doesn't have a Patch Tool, but does show a few sites that talk about a psuedo Patch Tool.  I'll look there.
