Posting image of what it looks like at this step.. invert the selection; in the levels window, bring in the leftmost slider until that part of the image matches the rest, i.e. about 35.

Thanks Neb

The penny just dropped! I wrote "invert the selection" (shift+ctrl+i), not "invert the image" (ctrl+i).

We're using progressively smaller rectangles to cumulatively correct flaring by setting the black point. The areas outisde the current rectangle are corrected already, so there is no need to invert the selection.
Although the left side has no flaring, we still need to set its black point for other reasons. The logic of the previous paragraph suggests that we do this for the full image then select the right side etc., but I wanted to eyeball to left side adjustment to match the corrected right side. In this case that means going darker than indicated by the histogram. The shadow/highlight opens up that area again later.

Thanks again panpan. I have learned so much from this interaction. I really appreciate it all. I am taking a non credit class right now and this interaction has been just as helpful as any class so far. The instructor is very good and knowledgeable , and so much of the class went over my head.We talked about color correction , and channels. I did learn a couple of techniques like using the snapshot and a way to crop at a set size. Things I did not know before. But he talked about 32 bit color and how computers read color and when it comes to math I am done!! However the man next to me who is a photographer was just as confused , so did not feel too bad. Have a good day..Thanks Neb
