I am relitively new to Photoshop. I am editing a photo and need some help. I am just figuring out layer and removing lage objects leaving seemless fill replacement. My problem is the photo was taken in the morning sun. Part of my subject is very bright, actually vibrant. The rest of it is shaded. Is there a way to edit one side to match the other?

Any help or sugestions are appreciated.

Using JJMack's suggestions the photo can be improved. 

You could try the select menu, like this:

Target the image layer and Select > Color Range > Shadows.

Click OK and create a curves adjustment layer.

Raise the curve to lighten the darker areas.

Target the image layer again. This time Select > Color Range > Highlights.

Create a Curves adjustment layer and move the curve down to darken the highlights a little. 

Lightening the shadows and darkening the highlights too much runs the risk of making the photo look flat. If you go too far, since the Curves are adjustment layers you can always double click a curves layer and re-adjust the curve.
