    Yes, you have noticed, I am a newbie.

    I have taken photos of some cars, and although it was a cloudy day,
    there are shadows and highlights.

    What is the practical way of removing shadows/highlights ?

    Thanks in advance,

    If you mean you want to make the shadows lighter and the highlights
    darker without losing details, use Image>Adjust>Shadows & Highlights
    in Photoshop CS.

    Ctrl Alt ~ will select highlights too. A soft edged selection will give you
    some control of localised levels...

    Do a search on 'Contrast Masking' ... you'll probably find
    several tutorials and/or procedures to help your images.
