    I was walking around and noticed this. It was mid-morning, not ideal for lighting.
    I tried to correct the shadow near the top of the image using curves, but then the bottom got blown out. Any suggestions?

    You need to make a local edit. Dodge it.

    Or you can throw the lasso tool around the top corner, the dark one, feather it nicely (at about 50 or so), and then selectively only lighten the top corner a little, but only so much that it doesn't stand out as "wrong" against the rest. But selectively working on parts does not affect the rest of the picture.

    Sorry, couldn't be around. Was in hospital. Now definitely on the mend though ... but as of next Monday I'll be abroad for a fortnight. So no LaFoto between 7 and 21 June on here, either... ;-)

    That's one of the reasons why it's best to get it right in the camera to start with.

    The color would more easily preserved editing a full size RAW capture, rather than a small online JPEG.
