    Default Is it possible to 'fix' this pic in post editing?

    Hi guys, is it possible to fix this photo with some editing tools? As you can see the tree and the bottom left hand side of the pic has got double shadow image. Thanks!

    nothing is impossible, only depends on how much time t=you want to spend

    it would be easier to reshoot

    Definitely possible if you are willing to spend time on it. You can brush or clone them out.

    Definitely possible with the clone stamp tool, patch tool (so that you don't see repeated patterns after cloning, and lots of time.

    For bottom left hand side... If you have CS5, make a copy of the offending area and the adjacent area you want to sample from; from the copy select offending area and use content aware fill to replace. Might have to retry a couple of times to get the desired result. Then clone and heal whatever remaining that's unwanted.

    Tree seems trickier. Other than manually clone and heal the double image, consider possibility of looking at the channels to select and isolate what's wanted and unwanted. Alternatively isolated the area around the tree and try out blending modes. If you can't rid of the double image, make it part of the tree. Hard to tell anyway from the silhouette at this size. Might work, might not work... but definitely time consuming.

    ...and get rid of the bush at the right edge.

    don't exactly know what you mean by "double shadow"... swing in the dark follows:

    a) the tree seems to have a reddish flair on the left side... if you want to fix this,

    1. make a selection of the tree,
    2. use curves or whatever colour and brightness adjustment tool on a new adjustment layer, with the selection as a mask, and correct the reddish tint out,
    3. clean up the mask to properly blend the colour with the original colour on the right side of the tree

    b) do you mean the triangular dark shapes at the bottom of the image?... if so,

    1. make rough selections of the dark areas,
    2. again, use the selections as masks for tonal and colour adjustment layer tools, and try to blend the colour and tone of the areas to be adjusted to match with the surrounding areas
    3. clean up the mask as far as possible to blend in the areas... you probably won't be able to blend it in perfectly at the edges, so move to next step
    4. use the healing brush to clean up and blend the area at the edges with the areas that do not have the shading problem...
