sun/starburst in CS3?
I was shooting fall colors last weekend, got some good sunbursts, but one of my favorite shots has a sun blob. Is there a way to make it look like I actually shot it correctly, got the sunburst?

I just got CS3, also have LR.


This is the pic




THANKS

Can't download the picture. Apparently, your smugmug settings don't allow
that.

What I was going to try was Dan Margulies' LAB impossible colors technique
to get rid of the flare. Don't know whether it will work, and without being
able to download, can't try.

I just changed the gallery the pic is in to allow right clicks... I think that is all you need to download, it allows copying.

Please let me know if I need to do something different, or if there is a better way.

THANKS for your time and effort.

The best I could do without clone-stamping is this:

http://jjbong.smugmug.com/gallery/36...208068188-L-LB

This took very little time. I curved the L channel darken the flare, and
did this through a mask of the Blue channel to protect the rest of the
picture. I also curved the B channel toward blue through the same mask
so that the sky in the flare area was blue, not neutral.

As you can see, the result isn't there yet. The bleed-over of the flare
has knocked out detail in the tree trunks, branches, and leaves. The
only thing you can do to try to restore it is some careful clone-stamping.
