Last night I was pleased to win the Advanced open section in our monthly competition. I wanted to remove an element in the image that made it look very cluttered so I tried for the first time the Content Aware Fill feature introduced in Photoshop CS5.

I've also decided to show you the image as it came out of the camera and what I finally presented:
