    I was able to successfully remove your shadow. Since the ground is basically a contiguous color and pattern you can use the clone stamp tool in PS set at 100% and carefully clone over the shadow with the bright part of the ground area. I could not upload it but would be glad to email to you if you wish if you provide an email address

          Thanks for trying, but your result cant be used.
          I tried soft clone stamp, but it is harder because depth of field.
          Tried replace color too, but not work for this shadow.
          Now I am trying curves, but still not optimal result.

            This is a colour issue. Adjust the rgb curves through a mask which isolates the shadow. All up, green up, red up and blue down. Fiddle with the sliders to get the mix. I'll send you the curve if you have problems but blending the tone seamlessly along the abutting edge is where the skill lies! Here is a rough viz.

                I was going to say the same thing, although I'll add that channel mixer can also be very good for this kind of thing. They changed brightness/contrast in CS5 or CS6 to an algorithm that just rescales all channels equally, so that's a third option for a portion of the work.

                The color balance will always be a bit different than the brighter areas. It receives a lot less direct light and typically a disproportionate amount from the sky. Atmospheric reflection tends to have a more bluish look as one might expect looking at the sky.

                    Eliminating shadow with underlying detail
                    by One4UAll
                    There is a shadow just below the two uprights in the door latch, caused by the overhead sun shining on the latch's handle that protrudes directly toward the viewer, so that the depth of handle is flat, but the shadow of it is distracting (I think). I took this photo with the idea of a flat abstract....

                    Cove Shadow Smoothing
                    by hillsadam
                    Hi, I have a new cove in my studio, but unfortunately when I light it minimally I do get a noticeable collection of shadow in the bottom,

                    Can someone suggest the quickest method to make this dark line less noticeable and a smoother gradient with least effort!

                    Thanks...

                    Hi there, I have an image of an uncle of mine that has very harsh shadow on one side of his face. I only want to know whether the image is able to be fixed or whether there's simply too much shadow. And if so whether it can be fixed using gimp and what techniques I should use. I do have a slightly higher...

                    Shadow Removal
                    by Coltsfan123
                    Hi, I'm very new to photoshop and retouching, but have tried to read up a lot on this board and get the gist of things. I really like these pictures, but there is so much shadow on the faces. Is it possible to retouch these or are they beyond restoration? Any help is greatly appreciated.
