Simpler Technique for Blending Two Images

I posted a tutorial that describes a simple technique for blending two exposures. I read about the technique briefly in a tutorial by Michael Reichmann on his site ( and he credited it to George DeWolfe of CameraArts's Magazine.

Briefly, the technique uses a luminosity mask, followed by a Gaussian Blur and then a Curves/Levels adjustment of the mask.

It's a lot easier than painting in layer masks *OR* waving a graduated piece of acrylic in front of your lens.

Enjoy! The tutorial walks you through the steps with a practical example.

It's a great tutorial! I found this on luminous landscape a couple of days ago when I was working on a really tough combination. It saved me hours of work, and looked really good. Well done for posting it!
