Re: Recovering shadow from the ground

I was able to successfully remove your shadow. Since the ground is basically a contiguous color and pattern you can use the clone stamp tool in PS set at 100% and carefully clone over the shadow with the bright part of the ground area. I could not upload it but would be glad to email to you if you wish if you provide an email address

Thanks for trying, but your result cant be used.
I tried soft clone stamp, but it is harder because depth of field.
Tried replace color too, but not work for this shadow.
Now I am trying curves, but still not optimal result.

Re: Recovering shadow from the ground

This is a colour issue. Adjust the rgb curves through a mask which isolates the shadow. All up, green up, red up and blue down. Fiddle with the sliders to get the mix. I'll send you the curve if you have problems but blending the tone seamlessly along the abutting edge is where the skill lies! Here is a rough viz.

I was going to say the same thing, although I'll add that channel mixer can also be very good for this kind of thing. They changed brightness/contrast in CS5 or CS6 to an algorithm that just rescales all channels equally, so that's a third option for a portion of the work.

The color balance will always be a bit different than the brighter areas. It receives a lot less direct light and typically a disproportionate amount from the sky. Atmospheric reflection tends to have a more bluish look as one might expect looking at the sky.
