Removing lens flare

Hi

I have a canon g-11 with small scratches on the lens. This produces some unwanted artefacts "reflections" which look like lens flare, see attachment. What is the best way to get rid of this?

Thanks

Masking a curve to affect only that area.

What skoobey said... basically just takes a small amount of masking skill. You can test blending modes/adjustment layer settings too, but in the end you have to apply some sense of judgement.

Re: Removing lens flare

you could first
1. duplicate the image layer
2. erase everything in that layer except the "glare" with soft brush
3. then play with "Brightness/Contrast" until it matches the rest of the image
here the result
