ok so im working on a print at the moment and i have got everything exactly how i want it to look apart form one bit. unfortunately its the most critical bit. basically i have a short s shaped bent tree surrounded by landscape. unfortunately the tree is a little dull and i need to dodge it. but i cant think how to do it without effecting the rest of the shot. heres a very rough sketch as im currently at work and cant scan my print:

so basically - how can i get my tree to have a higher value without the dodge/burn tools effecting the other areas of my shot?
