Hi Swampy. This is my first post..looks like a great forum. I like your tutorial...thank you. However, I notice a slight halo around the tiops of the trees..(more noticeable when zoomed in). Is there a way to get a cleaner division between the trees and the new sky?
Cheers,
Paul

PK.... Thank you for the get well wishes! So far no surgery planned, but that may mean a longer healing process. Things are slow around here in the summer so maybe I can get acouple books read. :-)

Hi Swampy,

... so sorry to hear about your broken shoulder .... I really wish you the best and the fastest recovery possible...

Just to thank you for a great tutorial!!!

I'd only like to add a small tip... If the blown out sky is pure white or very close to it, you won't be able to add any colour to it, unless you tone it down to a very light grey ....

Thank you, Flora!

Your tip about a "total blow out" may be true, but I've not experienced that in any photos I've worked on. I'll keep my eyes pealed for the exception though.

Flora, does this only apply with ‘Relative’ Checked.? Swampy has ‘Absolute’ Checked.


I hope you Get well soon Swampy.

Ken.
