Offending foot

Hi guys,
I have a problem I hope someone can help me with....The attached pic is of my cousins dog, she has asked me to remove the foot in the centre right. This is then going to be printed 600x400 mm on canvas, so it has to be convincing. I have a 7"x5" print from her that has been printed from a CD, (that I have) and the background is much darker than on the attached pic, but the offending foot is still a huge distraction. Any ideas will be welcome
Regards.....John

Re: Offending foot

How about making the shoe a bit darker like the attached.
I selected the sneaker, painted dark, adjusted opacity.
Not so distracting.

Re: Offending foot

Yea, I tried that, but my results looked too "painted". I also tried to darken it with levels and curves, with same results....I even tried colorizine it with hue sat, same again . Have to admit though, your's looks better than mine did.

Edit: Ant what's that for?

Re: Offending foot

To my eye that pink thing (upper left) is just as much a distraction as the foot. For a big print on canvas, Ant's approach is much better. And the canvas doesn't care if you rotate it 90 degrees . . .

Re: Offending foot

Thanks lurch, mmmmm got that carried away with the foot I never even noticed the "pink thing"
As for the rotation thing, you don't know my cousin,"if she wants a landscape, she gets a landscape"
Cheers.....John
