    since the streak was slight, i just used the burn tool, set to midtones, at 4% exposure. i set it at the softest and brushed the light streak slowly. adjusted the size of the brush acording to the width of the streak sometimes while brushing, the color saturates a little, so i brish it with the sponge tool to desaturate it to bring it back to its original color.

    I took your photo and made a false HDR image. It really took out the highlighted area. And that would be it for the first one. Then I did the desaturate, used the history brush and did the second one.

    Hope you get more images that are more unique than mine..lol!

    D'oh! Sometimes I forget this section even exists

    Thanks for that edbayani! I'm going to try it out on another picture and see how it goes

    kat's second image is 88% complete for me in terms of the image I have in my head. I'd make SOME of those great brick considerably darker to get some rich dark tones in the grey bricks.

    Best version so far IMO and 96% there.
    A bit more selective dodging and burning and a wee overall contrast boost would likely bring me to 100.

    Please keep in mind this is only 1 person's vision and at this point it's more about personal taste. The happiest person needs to be the photographer.
