Good job Randy,..did you use the gradiant tool?
The only thing I see to improve it , is lighten the background over her right shoulder.

Thanks Ron.. This is probably one of the several ways it can be done but I used the lasso tool to select the shadowed side and levels to adjust the tone as close as possible. Then the clone tool to blend in as best as I could without me dozing off on my keyboard. Bumped up the saturation a bit on the left side a bit.
Another way I was just messing with was duplicating the layer using screen blend mode and selecting the shadowed side. Then mask and fill it. Duplicated the layer again and used opacity to fine tune the exposure. Then use a separate layer to feather out. Hope that helps [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
