I have been working on this for a while, and have yet to come up with a very good solution. As you all know I went to a Tiger rescue facility Oct. 2006. Well some of the pictures came out funky because of the bars on their cages...Now some of these pictures if I could adjust them just right would be amazing pictures. Here is where I run into a problem...I can't seem to find the best way to get the picture to "even out". Here is a picture and if one of you guys could give me a tutorial on how to fix this I would be extremely grateful because that would mean I have many other wonderful pictures to share. Thank you in advance.

Well, I suppose you could run the clone brush over it at various opacities. But, probably will be hard to make it look right.
If you have to shoot through bars or fence, go for the lowest f-number you can and be as close as you can to the obstruction
This was actually shot through a dark 'chain-link' style netting:
and I did nothing to erase the lines. There weren't any.
Of course the longer the focal length the better, too. E.g. 500mm through a shiny wire barrier:

Other than a lot of Photoshop work, Don's suggestions are the only way I know of to deal with this situation.

Thanks guys. I guess I am going to have to go back and try again. :-) Sounds like a fun roadtrip to me. :-D

Always shoot wide open to eliminate the fence. Don is right. It will also depend upon what your maximum aperture is.
