Hey David,

The photo didn't make it through to the list, alas - posting the URL
rather than a formatted link should bring it through.

Just as a guess it sounds like you will need to "paint over" the
unwanted reflestions in the images, replacing them with realistic
textures and contours that fit into the surrounding image smoothly.

Depending on the situation, resynthesizer tools like Heal Selection
might be exactly what you want:  That particular filter samples the
image around the selection, and uses the color, texture etc. of those
pixels to smoothly fill the selection.  The Heal tool - a clone tool
that does a similar trick to blend the cloned-in pixels with the
existing ones - sometimes also comes in handy for removing smaller
"visual clutter" from an image.

These tools are available in the gimp-plugin-registry package on .deb
family (and I would bet .rpm) repositories.  I'm not sure if it's in the
Windows binary distribution or has to be downloaded separately.

You might get different and/or better advice when we have seen your
example image.
