Took this photo in Costa Rica about 4 years ago (bird is a Blue Crown Mot Mot). My photography skills were still in the "growing phase" then. Just wondering if there is a way to remove those branches in front of the bird since if those were out of the way I "think" it might be a decent shot. Thank You.

Yeah, it can be fixed.

Critique Corner is a low traveld sub forum here. You would get a lot more eyes on this if you reposted in "RAW, Post Processing and Printing", as the problem falls more under the umbrella of Post Processing rather than critique.

This was just a quick try, but you get the idea. Take your time with the clone stamp and healing brush tools and you can do it. Just be careful to avoid repeating patterns that stand out.

This is Great and much appreciated. I'm using LR5. What functions would I use to accomplish this? Thank You.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with LR5's tools. I have it, but I never use it. Not sure if it has cloning tools or not.

you will need Photoshop or a similar program. Lightroom is great but wont do what you need in this case.

I also have Adobe Photoshop (# 10 I believe). Would that work? If so which functions? Thx.

With LR 5 you have the cloning tool too, less easier to use than PS but with time and patience you can do it, it's called "spot removal" it's a circle with an arrow to the right (the second tool), LR might choose some part that don't fit, you just move the point that LR choose where you want to put it
