Removing Unwanted Elements with the Polygonal Lasso Tool in Elements 12

Melinda wanted to know the best way to remove the fence in her photo after trying other methods that were not giving her the results she desired. I used Elements 12 to select the fence railing, picked the bluish-gray color of the sky with the color picker tool, then used the paint bucket tool on a new layer to get rid of the fence.
