We've all been there before. You take a shot where your eyes are so locked into the future edited state that you're blind to the poor conditions of the reality before you. Details are over-exposed, reflections are oddly colored, and you've been baking in the sun so long that the accidental lume is unavoidable.

Never fear. In this day and digital age, almost anything is possible. And while I normally would discount such a complicated edit as not being worth it, armed with Lightroom's local adjustment tools, I felt compelled to embrace a spirit of limitless possibility and fix my terribly photographed shot.

So here's a mini rundown of the local adjustments I used to rescue this jungly shot of my Black Bay 36. Enjoy!
