    Took this picture at Glenariff Forest Park but the water at the bottom of the fall is too bright. I have tried changing the brightness but cannot get a decent level on it. Can anyone help?

    It's blown out (over exposed)...there is probably little or no detail in those pixels. If you had set your exposure to get detail in the bright area...the rest of the image would be close to black. You simply can't capture very bright and very dark in the same image.

    Also, this is running water which will often show up white, so there is little detail anyway. A much faster shutter speed may have captured the water more clearly...but that might have underexposed the rest of the shot.

    I would shoot with a faster shutter speed.

    Do a jerry rig job.
    Re-shoot it exposed for the water, copy the problem area onto a new layer in the original.
    Blend thoroughly and serve...
