Already has been cloned.

4. Continue cloning to paint over the boy completely. Don't worry about the fence railing at this time; we'll fix that later. The important thing is to reproduce a realistic background as it would appear behind the subject

5. Copy a horizontal section of the railing from the far-left side of the fence, using the Rectangular marquee tool. You should be able to use this tool to select only the fence railing, and none of the background area.

6. Paste the horizontal section into the image over a portion of the rail that has been obscured by cloning.

7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 until all the horizontal railings have been "patched." Then do the same for the vertical railings. Merge all the transparent layers containing the railings (make all the layers except those containing railings visible, and with the top rail layer selected, press Shift + Ctrl/Command + E [Merge Visible]). You'll end up with an image that looks like Figure 5.52. (I've left the selection boundaries visible so you can see the duplicated portion of the fence.)

8. The remaining boy is still a bit too much taller than the girls in the photo, so you can copy him, paste his image into the picture, and move him down a bit. Use the Clone Stamp tool, as necessary, to blend in the background.

9. Finally, use the Burn toning tool to darken the background and the girls at left. The finished picture looks like Figure 5.53.
