This is a discussion on I overexposed this picture,, can anyone help me with adjustment??? within the Fix This Photo forums, part of the PHOTO PROJECTS category; ...
I don't know how much more of an improvement my version is. It's difficult because you have the lady on the your left who has blown out highlights on her face, and other people with shadows on their faces. If they had been moved a few feet in a different direction, it might have made a big difference. I've seen worse. LOL
thanks so much for trying to help,, from my distance I didn't see the sun streaming through. It's a tough one!!!1
Icehocky, this is a really tricky one because of the bleaching.
The only way to fix the bleaching is to clone or to paint something in manually
The latter, I guess, because the older lady on the left has too much bleached out.
As you probably know, in digital photos, when something's 100% bleached, exposure compensation is useless because there
is no latent information to tweak
I had a go at fixing it, but I'm not the world's greatest Photoshopper
ohhh nooooo! Be careful with these blowouts guy!! good luck,
