Removing Unwanted Person

Hello, my mother in law is wanting me to remove the person holding the horse in this picture so she can frame it and put it on the wall for a Christmas present to herself. I've done some work on it but, cloning a lot of the surrounding items over the person, but when it comes to the part where his arm is hold the horse under its chin i have no idea how I can make that look okay? Does anyone have any advice they could give me? Thank you all in Advance.

I guess you mean the man with the red hat. Well the background has some dark windows and a flower pot. So on a separate layer you can select that area and clone windows and flowers in. The flowers came from the right foreground.

Re: Removing Unwanted Person

Unfortunately Phil removed one arm too many. I'd guess the forward arm of the two is the one to retain. Otherwise his advice is on the nose (so to speak).

Too many arms

Good Point, but I figured the guy in the back with the red hat was holding on to the horse with both hands. The man in the right forground had his right arm down and behind the lady. But the point I guess is how to clone.

Re: Removing Unwanted Person

Additional thing to consider:
I moved the couple on the right a little closer to the horse. Girls shoulder next to the horses nose. See attachment for the cutline. Also, I think there is another unwanted person in the picture. I have circled this area on the left side. I straightened the image (rotate 1.8 degrees) and cropped to a landscape 8"x10"

I also noticed two distracting white dots above the man with the red hat.

Re: Removing Unwanted Person

Hi Bob

Here is a quick..weak attempt... It did not come out the way i wanted but what the heck may as well post it.

If you had other pictures of the bar or you with that shirt it would make things a lot easier.

The big problem.. what to do about your other arm
