Removing Streak

A friend of mine sent me a photo he took of a fawn. Unfortunately there's a semi-transparent white "streak" curving up from the bottom to about half way up the picture. He has no idea what it is and I have no idea how to get rid of it. Any suggestions?

Hi there

Not so hard to get rid of the streak, but it is a little hard to keep the colors from shifting. I just used a soft selection brush inversed and levels set to luminosity to reduce most of the streak. Then a very light application of color burn on a color burn neutral layer to increase contrast. If you wanted to take a lot of time you could adjust luminosity then color to get rid of the color shifts.

Butch, excellent work! BTW, the red/yellow combination in the deer is very easily selectable with a Hue/Saturation in case you want to shift the color back toward brown.

Hi,

negandhi,


welcome to RP!

Lovely picture!!!!

Loosely selected the 'streak', copied and pasted it on a new Layer, duplicated this 'streak' layer a couple of times 'playing' with the Blending modes... Used Layer Masks to eliminate the corrections' bleeding to the rest of the image...

Butch,

I agree with Murray ... great job! .... (won't say anything about hue and saturation ... ... )

Streak Removal

Flora, wonderful job! Aside from your creative restoration skills, you have a unique talent for shifting images into their "sweet spots" of color, tone, and sharpness windows without every overdoing it.
Regards, Murray

Thanks

I just wanted to say thanks to all the responders.

I was the "friend" that took the picture with the white streak.

I was amazed at both pictures.

Thanks for your help

Paul
