Graphic Designer Challenge. Editing a Complicated Photo Using Only Lightroom.

So every body knows photoshop is a master of editing complex photos. But what if someone didn't photoshop? What if a photographer or a designer only had the photoshop's less known and less powerful editing brother lightroom?

Could you edit a complex photo using this program?

Well, I thought I might challenge myself.

Yes, I have the full version of photoshop, but as a fun and nerdy dare, I thought I might edit the entire photo using ONLY lightroom and see what happens.

Here is the original.

A lady at my church facebook chatted me to fix it for her from her vacation. She wanted the lady out of the middle and the lady out of the side. There was also a chair in the right and two people behind the sales in the back.

It was going to be hard, especially just using lightroom. I knew that I could do the chair and the lady next to the ocean. But taking out the middle person while also adding in the missing part of the boat was going to be hard.
