you should have pressed the camera lens front to the glass to minimise reflection, and use CPL if you had one..

then shoot wide open, or slightly stopped down from wide open.

in post, this sort of reflection is very hard to remove.

Good advice, night86mare.
Mmmm... did press right up the glass window. But did not use a CPL (though I had it with me) neither did I use a wide aperture. I must remember all these. I've got quite some learning to do here.
Thank you so much.

Haha... looks like maybe no choice leh...

just clone them off lah. its only at the sky portion, pretty simple.
Yupe. Like what velasco has mentioned. I would magnify the parts and gently bit by bit clone off against the surrounding sky. But somehow my PS skills are not good. They never turn out as good as what I hope they would be.

Yah. Good question. I do not know how to make the colour uniform.

Hmmm... well, as you can see, I am really in the very infancy stage of PP. I am still trying to grope my way through the sea of bewildering information. So sorry, man, I really can't give any advice on this. Am really looking forward to real advice from the Experts out there too.

try to aim to make it uniform at the very start. Don't work on a single layer either, use masks.

that way u overshot u can easily clean it off

use a magic number.

around 66% opacity 66% fill for the clone brush. magic number for Most cloning i do. even on faces.

i am going to say, use your time wiser

no one said that photography had to be painless, but deliberately giving yourself so much pain, i.e. shooting a photo to have to touch it up with so much effort later on - and i do mean a lot of effort, if this is going to hold up at 100%, and i make sure all my cloning looks ok at 100%, 50%, and fit to screen.
