Here is the image - a sunset on Waimea beach.

I'm using Photomatix Pro. I used a polygonal lasso to select the overexposed image for the tree and everything 'below' the tree. I'm trying to figure out if I can brighten just the foam of the wave and the beach sand.

My workflow is exceedingly simple. As a budget conscious amateur I'm using Photomatix, then ViewNX for a little sharpening & cropping.
