Reducing luminance in portion of scene

Using P Pro CC 2015, what is the easiest way to reduce the brightness of a large window in a shot?

Lumetri Color effect. Then draw a feathered mask around the window, so you only affect that portion of the image. Use luminance curve or the basic color correction sliders. If the window is totally blown out and you haven't shot in a high end raw format, there may be no details in the window to bring out...so the bright whites may simply turn to grey.

I will give that a shot and see how it goes. It was shot in a 10 bit format, so it may have enough depth to work decently. Thanks for your response.

Bit depth doesn't help if the image is overexposed.

Just learned to use the mask effect in premiere - it is great - and easy to work withc. It will help with some of the things I have been working with. Also parts of the picture that is overexposed. You want to get a part of the picture lighter and another part darker. Then put to Lumetri effects on the clip - one for the hole picture and one for the light or dark part. Use the mask drawing in top of the effect . Its beside an oval and a box - formed like a pen. Click on that and you can click a mask around the part you want to lighten or whatever effect you want to work with. There is also some tools like feather to soften it up. It is great to work with! Often the picture is not overexposed in black and white but it is only colours that looks strange when they are very bright. Try to find the tutorialn you tube.

Fortunately, the image is only somewhat overexposed in the
window area, so it should respond well enough to masking.
