Also if possible you can share the PSD file with steps :)

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1142233.jpg

I ask someone to take my photograph and it got overesposed and was a flash so all my skins got burned and super overexposed.

I don't have time to work on this now, but what I would try is first to use one or more Curves adjustment layers with a gradient mask to try and even out the lighting top-to-bottom.

I'd then try some non-destructive burning/dodging to "paint in" some detail in the faces -- make a new layer in Overlay Mode filled with 50% gray, then anywhere you paint with black (darker gray) will get darker, and anyplace you paint with white will get lighter, without affecting the actual pixels underneath.

That's pretty good -- I promise I won't report you if you make it a duotone ... :-)

It could also be fully hand-tinted, like they (unfortunately) do with old movies.

I don't have time to do more nowCopyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1142247.jpg - needs some fill in pixels and color tweak. Let me know and I can give you the details / file if you want.

Best I could do in 10 minutes with a screen capture.

An actual image file would help.

OK, managed to download the original jpeg. A RAW file would be beautiful, but here you go.

The shirt is a blinding distraction. Even with a RAW file, I don't think you can recover enough highlight detail to make it anything less. Sometimes you have to cut your losses. Is a reshoot possible?

Fixed.

Perfect! I stand corrected...
02/17/2015 01:00:20 PM · #15
Still needs some work but trying a slightly different crop to get rid of the distracting shirt ...

Color me impressed. 21.gif bvy is right about the shirt's being distracting - even though it's so blown, would it be any better with a slight color?
And yes, I think you could do wonders with the RAW file.

The issue is that with the blown out whites you've also lost all the textures within the shirt. You could certainly add something, but you would want to add some texture as well, and perhaps try and fake some likes. Possible, but more work than I wanted to do.

I really miss Art Rotflmao at times like these. His addition of Godzilla into the image would be a sure fire way to improve it. :)
