For a long time now I've been motivated to try cloning with PSE 5.

Finally made the effort today and cloned out an out of focus corner from this otter shot using the clone stamp and spot healing brush.

This was an early Pentax K10D capture taken in December 2006.

Looks good.
However I'd clone out one of the bubbles which was the only give away, but then again I wouldn't have noticed if you didn't mention it.

Very nice shot and, as nadnerb mentioned, the identical bubble is the only clue to the post processing you have done.

Very nicely done. Even knowing that you had cloned one section, I wouldn't have noticed the extra bubble unless someone had mentioned it.

Thanks Dawg, Tim & Harriet.

I find new editing techniques rather difficult so really appreciate your positive feedback.

It looks very good to me. Could you post a "before" picture for comparison?
