Scratches on photo

I haven't seen one quite like this before. The attached photo has scratches/indentions on the photo - most of them above the golf cart. When you zoom to 100% you can see many more of the same small scratches.

Dust & Scratches filter didn't work well at all, and I've tried patching and spot healing without success. There isn't a good spot from which to clone. What am I missing?

All suggestions welcome! What's the best way to fix this?

Re: Scratches on photo

As the picture does not have much color or shading, all you really need to do here is just paint over the blemishes slowly with a soft, med opacity brush that is sampled near by.

Nothing special, just work slow, and when using any of the healers, you need to work slow and small or it will most likely blur.

Hope it helps,
