Working Towards a Solution to Yesterday's Problem

———————————–
Yesterday I posted this same picture but as it was out of the box (minimal processing only). Today I have posted three pictures showing two possible solutions to the problem.

Thanks to everyone who tried to help. Further advice and feedback would still be welcomed.

1. Dancing Dolphin suggested dodging the highlights of the clock tower, so that the brighter image takes our attention away from the reflections. I think the tower certainly looks more eye catching. Though in this example I've seriously overdone it. For me though the problem of the reflections is just as bad though.

2. Cliff suggested using the selection tools (rectangle and free) and then altering the levels. We then used the heal tool to tidy up the lines at the edges of the selected areas.

3. Putting it all together. Cliff's and Jacki's ideas put together in a single shot. This time I kept the dodging to a more reasonable 33% rather than the 100% I had in version 1.

Interesting to see the difference that the different editing tools produces. Very educational, Jon.
