    Shooting against the light can be scarry - as seen from this shot. Is there any PP I can do to save this kind of problem?

    Hopefully Peano, or Ray (othere)will stop by with some great fixes.
    Be patient...

    Shooting into the sun will render such images.
    Try a fill flash as well on i situations such as these.

    They are fixable....

    It can be done, but as you can see from my layers palette, it's more than I would want to explain. In fact, it was such a rag-tag process, I doubt whether I could explain it. You just have to feel your way along.

    Thanks, Gale. It was a learning experience. I'm glad I had it. I don't want to have it again.

    Nice one Dave

    I was hoping for a larger image to work with and had started with the smaller one but you have got there....and got there so well.

    Really excellent recovery - well done!!!!

    Best wishes as always

    Peano - Tnx!

    Sorry for taking so long to say 'Tnx!' Had the whole family over for the weekend and couldn't get to the computer.

    Your results are stellar! - but looks like a LOT of work and time! I was hoping that PS had a magic bullet (action) that I could select an area and just push a button or another PPer had an easy method to save my blunders.

    Great work!! Tnx!

    Mike
