    I'll give it a try when I get home... I don't think that we'll be able to do much because once it's overexposed the details are lost in that area when PSing... at least that's my expierence...

    that's a great building! Where is it?
    Boblybill: IMHO your edit is a bit too yellow.

    Sorry, but with digital you can't fix overexposure except by not overexposing. Exposure is critical in photography. With negative film you have options during printing, but with slide film and digital, there is little you can do.

    This is as far as I tried to go. Levels in Photoshop. First overall: midtones to -80.
    Then I selected the building with the lasso tool and a feather of 150px and lowered the midtones selectively again to -10.

    I would not dare to go any further.

    I agree... now that I look at it... but like I and Digital Matt said there isn't much that can be done with it without making it look fake.
