    First post - please redirect if this isn't the best forum.

    I have a landscape image which I think is pretty fun - I am interested in enhancing a single spider web filament that is very faint in the original image.
    To be honest - I just don't know how to approach this.
    Below is a screenshot of a portion of the image - notice the left-to-right downward filament.

    Any thoughts/redirects appreciated.

    I do see it (I had to look a few times), but this is so faint that I don't think there is much you can do with it in Lightroom. I would use Photoshop and simply draw a white line manually and then set the opacity of this layer to something like 20%.

    Thanks - simple and probably all that is needed in this case.

    You might need a plugin that does micro object adjustments. Look at Topaz Studio's two adjustments....Precision Detail and Precision Contrast.
