    Shooting against the light is tough (but I love to!), and I didn't do too well here. What can I do in PS (if anything) to reduce/eliminate this flare?

    a little clone tool, a little burning, a little selective hue shift. (perhaps a bit magenta now overall...but that's more a curves layer on auto pilot that what i did)

    hope that works for ya. ;)

    great save Davo. I didn't think it was possible to overcome the flair.

    Dave,

    This is amazing! How long did you take to get to here and what was involved? I shoot in this room lots and inevitably shoot aginst this kind of lighting. I'd like to get a black board to put behind the subject to get a better separation of thier hair, but I am usually got offguard. Tnx!
