A little dark for my tastes. This is some contrast masking applied in Photoshop. Might want to subdue the colors a little but Iím running out the door.

Nice job slipe!

Did you do this by making a copy of the background and then use the 'screen' blending mode? Is this what you mean by contrast masking?

Regards,

Steve

Made a copy of the background. Desaturated and inverted the layer so it is a B&W negative of the image. Merged in layers with overlay. Apply Gaussean blur to the B&W layer Ė somewhere in the 20-80 range. You can also reduce the opacity of the layer if you want a more subtle effect.

The sky ended up a little grainy so I applied some smart blur just to the selected blue in the sky. I also did my almost standard defogging Ė Unsharp mask with the radius around 200 and the amount around 17. Again you can make it more subtle with less amount but you need the large radius. It isnít really a sharpening step Ė the image might do with some regular sharpening but I didnít do any.
