I have to be honest, I'm not sure it's possible to restore this photo.  Best case scenario is a very time intensive edit, in my opinion at least.  Was the clock on fire while it was photographed?

There is nothing behind the flame — if the image is on one layer, you only have the pixels that you can see.

 

Instead, you would need to use the Clone tool to replace the pixels you don't want with ones that you do want. I agree with George that this would be tedious, time-consuming, and extremely difficult to get good results.

I'm not a Brit, but isn't that Big Ben? Should be easy enough to transform another image in place.

Hi George,

Others have made good points. I'll elaborate a bit with my thoughts.

I see the image is from the movie 'London has Fallen'. The image you posted is not very high resoluion and the flame covers a large area. This would make it difficult and time consuming to restore and the end result may not even look accurate. If your aim is to get the clock view without the flame, the best approach is to find another image of Big Ben and then distort warp/perspective) to get it close to the view you have. 

If you're looking to learn about how to remove unwanted parts of an image, I'd suggest you look up the clone tool and content aware fill.

If there is something else you'd like to achieve/learn, let us know. Happy to advise or point you to good resources.
