Hi Guys
for the first time, I tried to get one of those "looking up to the canopy of the forest" shots
What ever I did in LR with the blown out sky, just went grey,
Then had a play with HDR toning, (no Idea what I'm doing, )
But I feel if I tone back the green and somehow squeeze some light blue in the sky, it will look OK?
Any way of fixing the sky?
......Gary
Vain attempt at PS HDR toning
