Hey Flora,

That's a great tut by Swampy and some serious skies by you. If I confused them for a picture of the real thing then they are great. I'm impressed.

As far as overdoing things as you said, I am sooooo guilty of that in almost every area. That may be one of my biggest problems when it comes to this. I should just take my final, flatten every thing but the background, and cut the opacity in half. Either that or get better at it.

I usually find a hue and saturation adjustment works well on these. I looked and is you select red and drag the hue slider to make it more green, then destaurate, also a small tweak to reduce the lightness setting and you get a nice result in getting rid of the flare, then as most of the others levels and burn to remove the rings of light created by the flare.

Nothing done to the sky in this one.
