wall light

There is this image. As you can see, top half is brightened by suns light, other half has shadow cast on it. I would like to make both parts same so it looks like there is no shadow.

Is there any way this can be done in Photoshop ?

  • Create a pattern with a square selection from the top part of the illuminated wall

pattern

  • Make a selection where the shadow is
  • Make a layer and fill it with this pattern
  • Menu Image > Adjustments > Desaturate
  • Change the blend of this layer, in this example is Hard Light
  • Use the same selection to create an Adjustment Levels Layer over the original image and increase the highlights and midtones
  • Select just the light part of the image inside this selection and create an Adjustment Curves Layer to adjust the light colors
  • Select just the dark part of the image inside this selection and create another Adjustment Curves Layer to adjust the midtones colors
  • Make an empty layer and use the Clone Stamp Tool to hide the seam

WALL

Menu Image > Duplicate > check Duplicate Merged Layers Only option and use this new document to make the last retouches

    This looks like a good start, but could it be improved further? – Mast Oct 12 at 9:03
  • @Picassomon Possibly a screen recorder, like this. – Mast Oct 12 at 9:03

    @Mast The colour temperature of the (previously) shaded area can be warmed a bit - sunlight in shadow tends to be a bit more blue than direct. – J... Oct 12 at 13:03
  • @J... That's a great idea. – Mast Oct 12 at 13:22
