Hi All, very grateful for any assistance offered here in order to proceed without being inefficient and this edit being an inordinate time sinkhole. As you can see, I'm endeavoring to and am in the process of trying to replace a dark and ugly looking background (which was full of branches and distracting clutter) with a more pleasing "sky" look. My immediate goal is to extend the area blue covers to almost touch the feathers and branches. Color tweaking will occur after that stage is reached. The hard way (which I want to avoid as it is energy draining) is to continue to clone areas with the picture blown up to 1500 percent to replace the remaining area bit by painstaking bit. I have a lot of pictures with relatively decent birds with poor to undesirable backgrounds that generally fall into the same condition so if I could be guided step by step with one picture, hopefully I can then be graciously enabled to "fish" for life!! Thanks so much for taking an active interest in advance.
