Light Leak Repair

Hello all, I am working on retouching a photo of mine that has large light leak down the middle from a crack in my Leica. I've tried fixing it using the method described in the How to fix a Light Leak or Stain post but haven't had any luck with that method. Does anyone have any other ideas? I'm trying to submit the image for a book and feel like the leak takes away from the quality of the photo.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Light Leak Repair

Hi, and Welcome to RetouchPro

What Software do you have? If you can see the channels then you will notice that all the damage is in the red channel. This can be fixed in several ways but one of the easiest would be to use a selective adjustment layer. I also added a blank layer set to colour just to finish off.
Total Time less than 5 mins.
