    Use large soft brush and adjust opacity. 50% works fine.

    you can lower the opacity more and paint more.

    Just a note: you don't really need to trace out the edges - the transition of light is never going to be abrupt, even in backlit conditions. This is why the soft brush, opacity method works great for such situations. Cheers.

    Thanks! Meaning u use this method & blend 2 exposures & merge the layers & then repeat the procedure for the next exposure?

    You can work as many layers as you like, as long your comp powerful enough, and use layer mask, so you can turn on and off to see effect, and also rework each or any layers without restart all over again.
