Take your Raw file and take it back into PS, Blacks>0, Fill Light up, so that you almost neutralize the shadows, just overlay the image and mask out the bit you want.

Smile My attempt

Did try taking it back into raw,put blacks to zero, shadows low, filled with light and result was not to good in CS3, however, i did discover "the blending brush" in Painter which did a reasonable job so stuck with that and reverse cloning, lots of it....result is a bit dollish as i had to soften the other side of her face to somewhat blend in...
Guess i need to practice at this for when it happens again...sods law always prevails

My attempt:

Re: How do i neutralise nose shadow?

I can do dodge and burn to lighted the shadow. But, what do people do at the edges of the shadow? How do you do a smooth transition?

I have this problem all the time. Help!

Try zooming in to 800x+. I wound not D&B at any less then 100% unless im zooming out to see the whole picture. Also, work slowly, 15%op 20% fill (or even lower). If you cant blend the edges, your not close enough to see them.

Below is my softloght layers, 50% grey fill set to softlight (Paint with white and black)

Notice how many layers i used, i start a new layer every so often just in case i mess up.

Dark to transparent, shifted lower layer to fill in the shadows, then clone/healing brush/degrunge work. Some contrast mask adjustments too and teeth whitening. See the blue eyes? Beautiful girl by the way.

Oh well.
managed to find one with no facial shadows and a few more so will concentrate on the workable ones, theres no sustitute for a well exposed shot i guess, this is Stacy with flowers in a pose they prefer in Spain.
