Nice job – and on the large shrub to the right. As first look, I'd have thought the top of the large tree was gone forever.

This was an interesting effect, so thought I would post it. Made 4 copies all darken mode. 1 pixel to the right, 1 pixel down, 1 pixel to the left, 1 pixel up. Most of the bright white spots are gone and the detail is fair. The roof area could use some more work, the trees and bushes came out a bit.
