Filling in gap between body and clothes

Hi all,

I'm new but I was having some issues filling in the space between this model's body and the bra she is wearing. I am trying to keep it nature as possible and if that means only reducing the shadow a bit so be it. I'm working on CS5.

The best I could do was a jpeg as I couldn't find a hosting site that would take much else.

I went the most basic route and just cloned in the shadowed area with a low opacity brush.

Shadow informs shape so removing the shadow would make it look like the breast is filling in the bra. You will also need to do a little bit of liquifying the edge of the chest and the shape of the bra a little. Once you remove the shadow you will also need to adjust the skin tone as it will most likely look desaturated.

This is what i got.

Nice work everyone. I'm going to give it a go tonight or tomorrow. I appreciate the feedback. The image is nearing completion and it is one of the last issues I'm been holding out on.

Flora, thanks for the workflow it is very helpful.

Flora, you are gradually becoming my photo editing hero. The way you did the shadows under the bra on your retouched version was great.

Basically you want to clone/heal over the shadow area to prevent noise from showing up from the shadow information (if you were to D&B directly). Then modulate with D&B, and eventually balance the saturation a bit.
