One of many from this past weekend's jaunt to the Balsam Mtns. This particular image has been chosen to reside over a couch downstairs, I'd like to hear any comments or suggestions/ideas before putting the ink down.
My biggest bother is the blown-out portion at top/center. Neglected to get the grad ND from the car before hiking upstream for the shot. Any advise or tips to help blend it out w/ PP? I'm self-taught with CS2, so anything more than curves on a layer mask is likely going to be gibberish to me.
I tried a quick and easy shadow/highlight and reduced the highlights and masked that layer and brushed in the reduced bothersome highlight area you mentioned.
