Removing Reflections And Obstructions From Photos

wow, just wow!

From the article:

The removal of the fence is impressive, but so are the recovered images of what was reflected in the window. The technique could clearly be used not just to make better photos but to recover information that was previously hidden in photos. Given that so few frames are required to do the processing it could also be applied retrospectively.
We seem to be heading towards the day when the camera will be capable of taking photographs that simply couldn't have been taken with a non-computational approach. When you take out your camera and point it at something through a fence or a window and simply press the button to remove the imperfections, the result will be a photo that corresponds more closely to your experience of seeing but it will be a lie by any definition.
