After our recent visit to Hodsock Priory, I was browsing through the many photographs that I had taken when I came across this one.
I found that even though the object was only a very small part of the photograph its placing and colour for me made it dominant and so the lady in red just had to go.
I needed the spot removal tool - shown as a circle with an arrow leading from it and I needed to set this to the clone mode.
Once I had covered the figure in white I released the mouse button and the computer made a best guess in choosing a patch of the photograph with which to replace the figure. You can just about make out the area chosen which is a patch of grass.
This wasn't a successful choice but fortunately I can over-rule the selection by dragging the replacement area by holding the mouse pointer over the black spot.
Now the finished photo looks like this.
I think it is an improvement. Here is a before and after.

Cheating? If I had noticed the figure standing there at the time I would have waited for her to move away so would have ended up with this shot anyway wouldn't I?
