The original view was obstructed by wire fencing. I used the clone tool (and then the smudge) to remove it the best I could. #665591

Wow! I was captivated by how nicely the painted effect looked in this image...then I saw the original image and realized how much work went into just removing the fence. Kudos to you for your dedication, which was WELL worth the effort! :-) #4434849
