I have Adobe elements 10. I have a picture in which half of the face has the correct expoxure. The other half is overxposed. The sun was shining on the overxposed part of the face. I need to even out the expouser and the facial color. I have been working on it for 8 hours with no luck. Help!

    My initial try was to work by getting any data present in the exposed parts of the face(by using ACR). But I failed to obtain anything useful from it. I then copied the other part of the face and tried blending it the the area under high exposure. Though this is not what you initially looked for but I guess the work is satisfactory
