"Zoo Tiger - Can I remove the fence??"


AU
          

As mentioned here last week, I headed to a zoo last weekend and got some great tiger shots.

The bad - there was a barrier and then a fence, therefore I could not get the camera through the fence.
As a result, I have dreaded fence marks in all my shots. In some they are extremely blurred but still noticeable.

I'd like to remove these but how? I'm not good with PP but I know there has to be a way to do this.. then again Im unsure how it would restore the part of the image that is behind the fence markings?

Here are some examples:

http://www.tigersconservation.org/photos/DSC_0707.jpg
http://www.tigersconservation.org/photos/DSC_0733.jpg

Any comments on the photos themselves and also the technique for removing fence marks would be great.
If anyone wants to have a go at it to show me that it can indeed be done, I can provide the high res version of the image!

Very difficult on the first two (might as well forget the 2nd). The last two I think you could do with some clever adjustments of color, contrast, and brightness and maybe some clever use of healing/cloning. It will take a lot of time, though. You'd need something like Photoshop and a lot of time.

I have not used it, but using clone (which many programs have) is how you get rid of it. I have seen some done by my father and it looks ok .... if you know it happened you will see where it happened ... if you dont know and dont look for it, it doesnt look bad.

Not much help to you, but maybe looking up the clone tool will help.

Visit my Nikonians gallery.
