How to do this?

What is the best method to replace the white and bright parts in this image:
sloth
whith the clouds from this one:
sky

I've tried masking, replace colour, darker colour layer blend mode, ... but none of these produced satisfactory results.
Thanks for all the suggestions to help me out with this one.

Try channel masking techniques.

Re: How to do this?

I used this Tutorial from Swampy... "Fix a Blown Out Sky"

Her other Tutorial on "Masking the Sky" is also very good

Swampy also made several other excellent Tutorials which can be found HERE

Did this just using the 'Fix a Blown Out Sky' Tutorial and just using a Selective Color Adjustment Layer

(after clicking GIF.. give it a couple seconds to change)

Re: How to do this?

For realistic results you can't just add colours willy nilly. The lighting on the sloth is related to the original sky and you should not adjust one without the other. I would replace the sky with a cloudscape, for 'texture' and would stay clear of strong colours which may betray the lack of sunlight and contrast on the sloth and palms.

Just use the background that is in the picture.

No,
HDR in photoshop.
Then mask the rest back.

Thanks. Topaz has a similar ability to enhance what isn't easily seen on first blush. Nice that PS has it built-in. I must explore it's HDR more.

Thanks for the suggestion but I feel this technique can only be used when there is a usefull background in the picture available. I'm looking for a method that allows you to change the background. I think in this case a darkgreen background with blurred leafs or a greyish cloud image might be good choices that give the whole picture a natural look.

Btw, thanks for all the other replies.
