Over Blown Photo

I know this photo is over blown but is there a way to salvage it.

If you have Photoshop, duplicate the original photo. Then change the new layer to multiple blend. Finally, add a new 50% layer, and with a soft brush, fill in the bright areas to finish.

Re: Over Blown Photo

Had a quick go at it. Couple of multiply layers. Select highlights and bucket fill 15% w/skin sample. Clone edges to smoothen transition. Burn some brows, whiten some teeth. Hue adjust to cool yellows. Curves to tame high end. Blur some artifacts. Add some grain. (edit) Oops...after posting I see I forgot to smooth her neck on the left. Next time...

Re: Over Blown Photo

HI Everyone, I have been lurking around for a while now off and on. Same as most folks trying to learn and experimenting a little when I get a chance.

Thanks to all who share their knowledge, guidance, and creativity.

I decided to see if I could do anything with this image. So far I have only worked on the gentleman in the middle with a pretty conservative approach. I spent most of my time on his face and cleaning up some artifacts along edges. Have not figured what to do to make his teeth look "real"

Hope to revisit it again as my "day job" allows and see if I can help the girls any.
