I HATE Branches
Everything I try, it looks horrible. Since I'm dealing with covered bridges,
simply removing a tree isn't always an option because of their locations.
I'm including the original photo and an after photo that'll hopefully show you
what I'm up against.
If you need any more details, just let me know. Hopefully someone can
help me out.
I'm using PS 7 with Extensis Mask Pro 3 (for my masking).
Looks like a job for ChOps:
From the looks of things, the luminosity might be your best bet.
Not sure how easily the halo can be tweaked out, though.

i duplicate the original picture, change mode to greyscale, use ctrl-L to adjust levels to make the picture more dark, and use black brush to paint on those area you wanna keep 100% details. I post the picture of my mask.
Saying 'cheated' was just poking fun at a trick you pulled.
The background behind the trees on the left is a crafty way of reducing halo.
When doing this kind of work, it's a very good thing to take into consideration.
That's why I always put my foreground over my new background before I even think about extracting.
Not many folks do that kind of thing.
I hate branches too!!!
That's why I wrote two tutorials about difficult selections .... and talking about branches ... the first one is here ....
But the method I used for your picture is described here...
Hope this helps ... and yes!!! If it makes my restoration easier, sometimes I' am cheating too ....
P.S. ... Just yell if you have questions...
