Help, over exposed on one side

I had an old camera and the film cover wouldn't close all the way sometimes and you can see the result. Dose anyone have any suggestion?

Levels Adjustment Layers

I used a levels adjustment layer with a gradient to increase the contrast on the right side of the picture. On top of that I place another adjustment layer. I then made a stamped layer by using the command/Option/shift/e key (Mac) and started over.
I copied the stamped layer using multiply blending mode and a layer mask to darken the lower right corner of the photo. I copied that layer again.

Above that I created a new layer with overlay blending mode and filled the layer with 50% grey. I then painted that layer with white to brighten up mother.

I then "Stamped" a new layer and finally copied the stamped layer in overlay blending mode and ran a high pass filter on that layer to sharpen it.

I did some cloning on the right side of the photo.

nitehawk,

Here is my version and workflow:

1. Duplicated the background layer
2. On this layer, I created a graduated mask and set the blending mode
to Multiply
3. Duplicated this layer again (background copy 2)
4. On background copy 2 I ran another graduated mask, but slightly
different, covering the woman more, set the Blending Mode again
to Multiply
5. Made a luminosity mask Alt+Control+~, copied this to a new layer----
Control+J
6. On this layer set the blending mode to Multiply
7. Made an Empty Layer, Shift+Control+N, set the blending mode to Soft
Light, with a soft black or white brushes at 10-30% opacity paintd over
light and dark areas to enhance contrast.
8. Merged Visible-----Shift+Alt+Control+E
9. Made another Empty Layer and with the Healing Brush set to Replace
made new trees, water in the background.
10. I made two more Empty Layers, one set to Overlay and the other to
softlight and painted over trees, rocks, highlights and shadows to taste.
11.Merged Visible, Smart Sharpened.

Looks great Phil, not familiar with stamped layer, can you please explain? Or is that also known as a 'merged copy'?

Merged Copy

I believe that is the same as a Stamped Layer. I got the word "stamp" from the photoshop help files. At any rate it puts all the info into a new layer.
