not sure if this is the best way but this is what i always use for simple stuff like that.

select the clone tool

alt + click on an area that is clean on the window pane; this is what you are selcting as the source of the cloning.

keep clicking on the area you want to clone out until its gone.

Hi Warren,
I used the clone tool to just quickly touch up the flash. If you spend a little more time you can do the same on the reflections on the window frame.

It helps when using the clone tool to work at 100% or close to it. It gives you more control over the end result.

Warren,

This is best, and most easily, handled at the in-camera stage, by having the photographer take one or two steps to their left or right. This causes them to shoot at an angle to the glass, and *presto*! By the miracle of simple geometry, the reflection is gone.


Cheers.
