    Default sky edit for CC (Gwen)

    Gwen, you'd said you thought this pic of mine needed more contrast...so I worked on it tonight...am I on the right track here? I adjusted levels on one layer and then added contrast....then "masked back in" the original trees.

    What else should I do?

    It definitely adds a depth to the sky and makes the trees pop a little more.

    Thanks! Yes it does look much better to me too, more "pop" and more blue.

    well, I thought the "vintage edit" looked cool ... but if you weren't going for vintage, then your coloring was really off. I'd love to take a stab at them if you'd like. if you still have my email, shoot them to me (or grab my email from FB)
