    Default Slight Overexposure On Foreground

    Hi,

    I took a lovely photograph yestaday of the "BRECON TO MONMOUTHSHIRE CANAL" unfortunately i had a slight spike in the exposure on the right hand side of the HISTORGRAM.
    This reulted in the grass in the foreground being slightly overexposed.
    Is there a way of correcting this without affecting other parts of the photograph, iv'e tried using a "DODGE & BURN" layer, burning the effected area, however, no success has been notice.

    Kind Regards
    Gary

    Default Posted Photograph

    Hi Graham,

    Posted photograph in Gallery. Had to go as low as 1 in quality to get it to load. My problem area is the first bright area where the sun is hitting the fence and grass.
    God the photo looks poor on here , so i hope you understand my concerns.

    Kind Regards
    Gary

    Hi Gary I saw your photo and know what you mean
    open your photo and duplicate your layer this is the layer you will be working on.
    select your lasso tool and make a selection round the light parts of the grass
    Now go select- modify- feather. in the feather rabus box type in 75 or there abouts and click ok
    now go image- adjustments- levels(short cut press ctrl L at the same time) , a box will appear
    under the histogram you will see 3 sliders one black, one grey and one white
    now move the grey slide to the right until your happy, don't move the black or white sliders they will make it look unnatural, then flatten your image and it's done. any problems with it just let me know... Graham
