glass glare - howto fix?

Hi
Could anybody help me out with a glass glare problem, I have been struggling with it for couple of nights now. I just don't get acceptable results from my efforts. So if any kind hearten person out there would like to step up and assist me and perhaps teach me how to do this properly (next time I will watch out in the studio).

With best regards,
C

While you could probably solve it with multiple adj. layers, you may just try selecting the area loosely, copy, desaturate, color it back carefully, fine tune with a mask, heal a few minor edges.

Re: glass glare - howto fix?

There are a number of ways to address this problem. Here's one. Duplicate the background layer, then Apply the Red channel to it in Normal blend mode and change the resulting layer's blend mode to Luminosity. Add a blank layer above that set to color blend mode. Sample good skin color and paint over the green reflection. I stopped there but you may need to do a bit of touch up with the clone or healing brushes.

The other way is to slowly piece by piece cover the affected parts with mostly "curves", taking reference points from "good places".
