Re: Sun Blow Out

You could use levels or curves with masking.

Re: Sun Blow Out

TommyO,

The short answer is no, the skin was blown out. As you can see with the exposure: offset turned down.

I copy murged>>>patched the area>>> then erased all un-needed area>> Set that layer to luminosity>> Painted in color in underlying layer set to color

They should really make a patch that samples from all layers.........

That really looks very good on the bride.

I thank you all there are many great ideas on how to fix this. However, I don't have CS4 yet so some of the new Raw techniques aren't available to me yet.

Re: Sun Blow Out

Rob,

I just found >THIS< and it seems to work well.

Below are my results from JUST the technique above and some contrast reduction and exposure increased masked for cheek. Then some of the same fine details from the other image.

I could have done a better job with the lightening of the shadow, but I’ll leave that to you. The highlight was fixed by the painting with the above method.

This should be feasible with your current set up.
