Here is a tranquil scene on the River Arrow in Warwickshire, England. A sun tanned fisherman at a sunlit spot on the riverbank.
The trouble was light on parts of his his tanned (sun burnt) face reflected so much that they became "blown" and impossible to recover, even with QU's excellent raw highlight recovery tools.
So where have all the blown highlights gone? Vanished with the editor Vanish Tool.  Cool
I used the tool with a x2 and x4 magnification set in the preview and also used a mask prior to Vanish.
See the attached screen shot below from a before and after comparison.

Hello Terry

You did a very good job.

I must admit I would have difficulty doing that with the VT.

I would have had to resort to Elements.

Even with a conventional clone tool, this case would have been quite tricky I think.

When Terry told me of the Vanish idea to get rid of hot spots that otherwise were not able to be tamed, It was like a fireworks display.
What a brilliant idea.!!
So I tried it on the same image, but I had no great results with a mask, so I just used the plain vanish tool.
I took small pieces and it probably took a full 5 minutes including the hot spots on the face too.

Here's my results.
See! Terry is much more than a pretty face!!

Blown highlights are my sprcialty (creating them, not fixing them). I have found the vanish tool especially useful on portraits for that little hot spot that frequently appears on the tip of the nose.

That would be the vanish tool in GLINT mode, right?
