I'm not sure if it is savable, or worthy of saving, but I like it. Outside of laborious, time intensive work, what do you think?

Hi MoonGypsy. I think it is worthy of saving and virtually any image is savable, to a degree. This one is definitely savable though. As you seem to feel there will be a lot of time intensive, laborious work involved, I'm not exactly sure of your intended end result, apart from getting rid of the rain spots. So I have done that and using Shadow/Highlights in CS have brought out a touch more detail, (restricted due to file size), in the building,and darkened the moody sky a little. It took longer to upload this edit to Photobucket and type this out.

If this is not what you wanted to end up with I apologize, just to let you know it's only a couple of minutes to clone the rain spots out.

I think it is definitely worth your while to have a go at the original. I like it.

Regards,

Stevekin.

I took a slightly different approach than Steve. As the photo is monochrome, I simply used a brush to darken shadows and lighten highlights slightly. This is not intended to be a final version, just a quick attempt to give an idea of what can be done.

Not sure what you what for sure but here is my version. Again rain drops fixed, with a combination of burn (on a copied layer) and clone also added some noise back in and some sharpen brush as burn tends to soften the pixels. Next levels but with a mask so only the house is effected. Then 2 layers with mode set to screen. second layer with amask to return some of the depth to the leaves

Thanks guys. I wasn't sure what to do, but now that I've seen it's possible I will attempt to fix it with your suggestions. I'll post it again later when I'm done.

Hi Mark,

I like the way the tree reaches down to the building, but why don't you post another version too...

Canna.

I worked on it some, but didn't like the result. I'm having problems matching the clouds, so I'll just re-take the photo another time. Thanks for all your help!
