Taken at free practice this afternoon , while the leathers and main bike are ok the screen is blown out due to the sky /light reflecting.
Is this a fait accomplis with the angle of the shot or is there something I can do ?
Many thanks for the c&c on my last shot .

Kev, I've never tried this but couldn't you just select the blown out bits and adjust the level just in that area?

Not sure there is much you can do as shot, polarising filter?

Cheers Mark , I had a go at selecting and levels but you can always see the edges , and I have lost the detail anyway . I have a couple of shots of others that are ok but I'm not consistent with this blown out stuff

Open the levels palette and select the white highlight dropper, click on the brightest part of the whites, the blown parts....
This should bring the highlights back to normal..

The problem with Druids is the black background of the woods, you need to underexpose the image to compensate for it....

It's a great spot though..... Smile

Nice work.

Cheers Tony , I think a slight underexposure does make sense
