We want to see how you've removed annoying reflections from your shots. Show us the shot you're talking about and then explain under it how you removed the reflection/glare.

If you're new to Photo Month you can find out more about it in the what is Photo Month forum.

Just dealing with the reflections on the glasses ......
working on a duplicate layer -
Using the burn tool set to shadows at 30%
Then on an adjustment layer, bringing back slight detail in the single hairs

Its best to get rid of them in the shot, (my processing is not as good as Kaybee above)
Use a longer lens than normal to place you further back and minimise your own reflection in the 1st place.
Switch off extra light sources/ draw curtains etc.
Or for this one use a polarizer to reduce reflections off glass queensmall.jpg
