Re: Official "The Look" Thread

another picture with a new trick to bring out details
play with luminosity channel in lab : copy it to a new layer (Back to RGB)
run a high radius low amount unsharp mask (40-120 works well) set the layer to luminosity with a black mask and paint where need be.

Re: Official "The Look" Thread

Skilove, very cool again, lovin it. I have a question, whats the best method of compositing a sky into the image like you did? I have a lot of trouble and always end up masking like hell with my skies. See below is an attempt, but I think i could do better. EDIT: Also the sky that was the original sky was just a flat mid dark blue sky, no clouds.

hello fadewoodart
to mask the backgroung i usually take the channel method, then i try to make the luminosity match (it's easier to darken, it helps removing the fringe)
see you

I don't work with channels much, which is why im trying to learn those puppies. How do i go about doing that method? I'm in channels, what do I do next? Should I duplicate the background layer, then put the new sky layer above that, then go into channels and choose the blue channel if the sky is blue by using the marching ants, or what?
