Problem photo

I have a photo that has an orange streak running through the middle. When I turn off each channel except for blue, the orange color disappears. How can I use channels to remove this color? I have never used channels before.

Re: Problem photo

try coping the channel that doesn't show the glare create a new document with it> create a green layer on top > then mode the layer to hard light>then select tractor and delete from the hard hight mode.just a thought I'm sure more tweaking will be involved though

Re: Problem photo

Create a new channel mixer adj. layer above your image, set it to "Luminosity" mode, tick the "Monochrome" checkbox and set the values to 0% red, 0% green, 100% blue, 10% constant.
Mask out the truck (it's getting way to dark otherwise) and use a new layer on "Color" mode to brush over the color differences.
