I am working on this photo in Aperture 3 (this is a partial area of the shot).
It's a night shot with a 30s shutter speed, so there are areas, namely above the roof that are blown out. This compared to the darkness of the roof make the line between the two look almost drawn in. My eye keeps going to it and it really bothers me.
Is there a way I can decrease the contrast between the two in just that area of the shot without ruining the contrast in the rest of the photo?
Should I smooth it out somehow?
