How to Obscure a Portion of a Map

New to GIS, ArcMap, AI, and graphic design in general so be gentle.


Working on a project and I have attached the exported image of what I have so far. The project is to show as much of the inundated area (the area that looks like water washing over land) as possible while obscuring everything else (obscure, not clip). The problem I am running into is that I cannot obscure the upper portion of the map without affecting the inundated area. I tried to transpose the colors so that the inundated area is dark but that affects the overall look of the map.


As I am new to this, I would prefer to stick with what I have, regardless of have elementary it may appear, instead of trying to get fancy. Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
