Remove Window Relfections

Can you tell me what (in the world) I might do to try and get rid of the window reflections in this image and bring out the great looking squirrel staring back at me. Is it even possible?

Thanks for any suggestions. (I use PSPx primarily but have PS7).

Ken

Here is a quick fix in CS2. A couple of selections, some levels and healing brush.

This is my try. Not as good, however, as Yuccaview's work above. His has excellent color matching on the fence among other things.

Re: Remove Window Relfections

Hi ya'll
I just selected the washed out areas used a bit of feather on the selections.
Adjusted to match as close as it would match then deselected it and adjusted the
entire image.I used levels to pop it and the history brush to paint back in
what blew out.Used a little clone and healing to fix the rest.
Pretty nice photo.
Don

Re: Remove Window Relfections

Don, can you help with a little more detail. I selected the triangular area on the lower left, and tried various adjustments with a number of trial and error blend modes. On the lighter washed out area, I got close to the wood rail but there was a line (feather didn't seem to help), On the really whitish triangle...never got rid of remnants. Any more detail from you or others would really be helpful.

Re: Remove Window Relfections

Ken,
Where the lines showed I just cloned out, big brush and soft edges in the greens small brush on the ledge.Some of the areas I used just a soft brush with color only and picked a color to fine tune what ever needed tweeked.
The healing brush is almost worth the price of CS, I have almost worn mine out. Probably used the burn tool some to get the density close in those lighter areas.
Hope this helps.
Don

Re: Remove Window Relfections

Just a quick go.

Cropped first to minimise amount of work to do.

Selected and adjusted, cloned out joins.

Colour corrected and sharpened.

Thought Green BG overpowered things a tad, so desaturated greens a touch in BG area.
