I need help big time. I am probably barking up the wrong tree, but I just don't want to toss this pic untill I've tried everything. How stupid am I to have NOT seen the flare when I took the pics, but whatever, I'm a moron and I know it. Now I just need help. I took this pic and am hoping that one of ya'll, (Oh Andie, Amber, Stacy, Esti, Katie...)has way more talent than I and could step me though it. Here is the origional. No, I have not attempted the eye yet, nor have I actually edited it like the skin ANYTHING. I have strictly been working on the flare. But yeah, I atleast wanted to see if ya'll thought I was nuts for even giving it a go. Any/all feedback is appreciated. THANKS!

Kelly, I love you, but I don't think you're going to come up with anything brilliant on this one. The sun goes right through her face, and I think it might be too tough to recover it. It's a great picture, minus that streak of sunlight, but it's not worth pouring hours into recovering it.

That's a tough one Kelly. Whoever can fix this is a true photoshop master...

Just chug-chug-chugging along.
I dont think its save-able either, hon. Im so sorry! I know how frustrated you must be. I agree, if anyone can fix this, I would bow down to them as the photoshop master!
It is a cute shot! I think that it is probably fixable but I think that it would take hours and hours to do it well. I don't think that it is worth that kind of time. But who knows maybe someone will come on here and come up with an awesome quick fix!
Oh...with all of you guys saying this is unsavable...you know I'm truly tempted to fix it!
Most everything is savable..but this would take some time...and sadly I'm in the middle of desprately trying to finish my Dad's wedding shots and the newborn session so I don't have the extra time.
I shouldn't even BE here! LOL!!!
ETA: It might not be that difficult with another picture of the girl without the sunflare. As long it was straight on face...with her head at least the size of her head in this photo...or bigger. If you had that...it wouldn't take hours...30 min or so.

Wow Andie! You rock!
I love you girls...and by your request Amber...
I know, I know, my sooc's kinda suck right now, but it was just a practice shoot...or atleast that's what I keep telling myself. The girls' mom is learning to take pics too so she was shooting with me when she wasn't in the pictures.
Andie, you are awesome! Thank you so much for trying. I was almost wondering if I could duplicate the sun flare to make it look more on purpose...
