Recently, I needed to help out a local actor. I took her headshots, and this was one of her favorite images, except for the hand in the photo. She (and I) felt it was distracting, and detracted from her face. I used the clone stamp and the patch tool to remove her hand, while keeping the correct color and tone to the space that I had to create.
