That's a cute animal hehe. First time I've seen one. It reminds me of a prairie dog.

I took this one the same day, and would appreciate any advice on how to remove the distracting bar of light to the right of the groundhog. I'm new to this and have much to learn on the software side. I have Phtoshop elements 3.0 btw.

You can easily remove that with your Clone tool. I have Elemets 3, too. Make it the fairly large and clone the sky right next to the light part (press the alt key and click on the part youwant to replace it with)and then drag it down. I really like the pic.

because the background is a gradient gray you might find using the clone tool a little tedious, so an other option is to crop. I also took the opportunity to do some levels corrections and some usm, hope you don't mind.

Now that i see it here maybe too much usm.

So thats what a ground hog looks like:-)Cloning is the way to go, only tedious if you set the brush too small on big spaces, then finish of with the healing tool.

Here is a quick edit, about five minutes work, cloning tool set at 98% a quick run through neat image (you can down load this on-line free) and there ya go. If you have more time there is more that can be done with this image.

PS I posted this large in case you wanted to save this image to work from.:-)

Wow,
Impressive indeed Aladyforty. Me thinks a book or course for Elements might be in order. Thanks for the help.
