I'm trying to fix the reflexion in the model's glasses in this shot. As it is now you can see the background of the studio being reflected in her shades. I want to erase this and make it all metallic silver like it is on the far right side of the glasses. The problem is, no matter what I do, I cannot seem to replicate a natural silver reflective look across the plane. Does anyone have any tips or ideas that might help me achieve the look I want here?

I'd select the glas (path), then apply a gradient and/or airbrush.
Sample a few existing tones, go slowly, add some noise when done (separate layer filled with 50% gray, blend mode set to overlay works well for this and is a bit more flexible then adding noise to the layer itself).

Alternatively, you could take a shot of a surface that has the "look" you want then fill the frame(s) -- you may want to do a little "warping" or something to get the "curved" look but hopefully the finish will be "silvery" without any more unwanted reflections if you do it right!

Thanks... I ended up doing a gradient and then altering the opacity. I can live with these results, and actually now like this better than completely removing all the background artifacts. Makes it look a bit more natural to me.
