Removing Whiteout only from some part of the image

I have a waterfall image. From some part of the image(specially from the top part of the waterfall or the sky) I want to tone down the white (say I want to clip all white colors whiter than A0A0A0, meaning all colors that are whiter than this will be clipped to this color) but I do not want to touch other colors.

I tried with the level tool but no joy. I am not a photoshop pro but have CS2 installed. This operation seems like simple for a drawing package like photoshop but I can't to locate it anywhere.

Can any pro help? I am open to other ideas if this is not possible or the right way to do...

Thanks a lot for your time
SK

Re: Removing Whiteout only from some part of the i

there are several different ways to do this. I just selected the white area of the sky and replaced the sky with one from the internet.

Thanks,

Did you use something like the lasso tool to select and then use a pattern to replace?

I was looking for limiting the white burnout from all parts of the picture.

I created filter > render > cloud after filled blue color on new layer. It replaced overexposure sky.

I was learning from http://retouchpro.com/tutorials/

you can also do 'new layer -> fill with a0a0a0 --> add some noise (maybe 1%) --> sett layer to darken' it will fill in the blown out portion.

nice way to add some dot

I tried the shadow / highlight myself, but could not bring down the level of white at the top of the waterfall. That's why I was wondering if there is some other way to clip the white level...

Thanks for the time...
