Hi Alan

A little constructive criticism if I may, you made a very good first attempt at cloning, but try to avoid pattern repetition when you clone( check out my pic), else it becomes very obvious that a picture has been fudged, another useful tip is to reduce the opacity of the cloning brush, and use multiple passes to achieve the desired effect. Hope this helps, I don't mean the comments unkindly. ... Jack

OK Paul,
Sorry I screwed up the names, glad you're taking my comments as meant ... advice. Photoshop whatever version has a steep learning curve, I've been using various versions for several years now, but still find I can learn things. ... Jack

The true experts at getting rid of excess people were the guys who worked for Stalin back in the 1930's. It's a real shame we can't get some of them to post on how they did their magic, back before digital and computers were invented... :)

I've seen the before and after shots, and they had this whole thing down to a fine art.
