Wow, that looks really good Talley! Nice work on that one.
I wasn't trying to be rude BTW, i was viewing on my phone and it made that spot look just like a bruise. Looks very different on my monitor this morning and your fix is very good, something I'm not really skilled at. How did you do it?
You weren't rude... you helped me find/fix the problem. My post skills continually need improving and I did poor the first round. Second round a success so thanks!
I just did the heal brush in LR at 50% opacity and kept hitting the same areas over and over until I got it down and would move the healing areas to just outside the bright spot to tone it down. Seem to work but man I have about 50 brushes in there. Had to select mask selection to never so I can keep going over and over.
seriously thanks.... it does look good now.
