Blown out water

Oh, FABULOUS FLORA, I NEED you. Attached are two images. I've corrected everything except the waterfall. My attempt(closeup) looks tacky and fake. The original is also posted. I had to multi the bg so much it just made the water worse. Thanks

Good choice with Flora

Well until Flora get's up and has coffee maybe this will help some.

the waterfall seems to hold no info in it's brightest regions. .... What got me to try it was wondering if you had tried with the stamp tool set on multiply... you can be selective that way... use a soft brush set at 20% or so.

just sample in the same spot as you first apply the tool.. I'm not happy with what I did either.. but something to play with awaiting Flora's response.

Thanks Rondon. I had used a weak stamp tool, but w/o burn. Yours looks better than mine, but still something is amiss. Maybe some other folks will jump in. Appreciate the help.

Yes I'm sure folks will.. also your dog looked a bit sad so I've tried cheering it up a bit... fits as an avatar if you like it.

FYI - Flora is in the process of moving, so I wouldn't expect her to login anytime soon. Sorry I don't have better news or sensational advice of my own.

Danny, does not Flora realize she is not ALLOWED to venture from her 'puter?

Here's my attempt:

1. Duplicated Image

2. Lassoed girl and rock and placed on own layer. Rename Girl.

3. Inverted this selection, activated the main image and selected and placed on its own layer (by inverting the previous selection you just copy the background now leaving out the girl and rock). Rename Falls.

4. Duplicated the girl layer (Girl layer is my source to go back to if I need to). Rename Girl Two. Applied a levels adjustment just to this layer by tweaking the middle triangle.

5. Applied a curves adjustment to the Falls layer. Used the white eyedropper to click on the blown out areas of the falls.

6. The girl still needed some more light so I duplicated the Girl2 layer and applied a Render>Lighting Effects and selected spotlight. I adjusted the light until it looked natural. This took a couple of attempts of lowering the intensity and widening & repositioning the circle representing the light. Rename this layer Light and change the mode to Soft Light.

7. I lowered the Light layer’s opacity until I liked the way it look.

8. Used the patch tool to take a few good areas of the falls to replace the blown out areas. Then fine tuned using the clone tool, smudge tool and blur tool.

9. Did some minor touching up with the blur & dodge tool. Flattened image an increase the saturation just a bit.
