With the layer grouped any painting will only be on the tree limbs and leaves. Use your sample tool to pick an appropriate color and paint the halos away.

Even perfect masking will not always work because light often refracts around shiny limbs..and some things like leaves are semi-transparent so you will never mask a light sky and replace with a darker one without halos.

There are other ways of course.. the sky often gets lighter at the horizon so you can sometimes apply a gradient to the mask to keep the luminosity the same at the junction of the trees and sky.

With some pictures especially with hair... you can duplicate the mask then on the top mask use a filter like Maximum to slightly shrink the mask . On the original size mask change the mode to Multiply. The small mask on the top layer will reveal the regular hair while the larger mask below will show the ends or hair tips and they will be darkened because of the multiply layer mode.

I will try this method this evening. Thanks, a lot.
