hi to everyone,

I do admit it is PS twek.I also admitt such a huge diff. is not possible to capture in camera with due limitation.You need to twek.

As fas as thw tweak image is concerned ,I felt this is what Torgny was trying to do.I thinkl I guessed it right. Well I have done the light effect too sharp and harsh just too make a point-Is this what you wish to do.

Now come to crucial point How I have done it

1) use magic wend to select the bright part

2)Inverase the selection and darken the shadow part a bit using the level commend

3)Again invevrse the selection to select the bright part,press Ctrl + J (copy selection)

4)Use the filter - blur- redial blur - zoom (99%)-Ctrl+F (2 -3 times)

5)Ctrl + Shift + F (fading the effect) reduce the opacity according to your taste.( with due apologies I have kept it too high it hurt my sense too)

mcliu,

Thanks for your effort. I will copy and paste the technique (1-5) into my PC folder "Improving photo skills"
