It's a high-contrast scene--strong backlighting (of green leaves) and side-lighting (of the grass). There were two areas of blown highlights: (1) the sky and (2) the grass.

In all likelihood, he attempted to fix the former by selectively blending in a separate exposure (either another capture or a RAW file under-exposed). However, the layer mask selection boundary is too abrupt (not enough feathering).

Regarding the latter, he did not attempt to fix it. The grass has blown highlights and there is an apparent loss of detail there.

I don't know whether this qualifies as a total "catastrophe," however.
