this has been posted before, but annoyingly I'd got a few niggley things a little wrong (dust, dodgy cloud) so reworked it yesterday when bored. In the spirit of showing the humble RAW file, it will be attached...

This one's a little wider than the original, more space to the right, and the sky's a little more carefully honed... I think...

How....?

Well it's 3 conversions

1 for the sky (there is detail in that RAW)
1 for the colours - grass, valley etc.
1 for the water flow. I made sure it didn't burn out using CP1's highlights option.. though it does look a bit bright when resized BUT it's not burned!

I used the "colours" layer as the background and pasted in the other 2 layers on top, masked them both out completely. Then with a low opacity brush (6%) I painted white on to each layer to bring the sky out and the detail in the stream.

That's my bit for children in need done Smile

shame I deleted the 3 conversions that made it up really - they were HUGE TIFF's so I tend to bin them when I've done. Can always make them again!

Cheers for coments - feel a bit of a fraud re-posting.... but it's a bit different...

nice to have before and after Smile and the bit info.
this one is so much clearer lots more visible detail and the colours are more prominent,also the sky is much better looks heavier and more colourful,soz not very good at explaining things but its a definite improvement from my end Smile

that's cool starliz - just what I was after really. the first attempt was a 2 step conversion, just checking that the 3 step one was worth the effort.

thanks Smile

Rodd, send us a PM if you want any info on how it was done - it's one of those thing, easy when you know how! Like riding a bike - fall off loads at first, but get the jist of it and you're sorted

Thanks Ade you know I am always interested in how its been done. I am still "playing" with my RAW stuff. Like you say its easy when you know how.
Getting to grips with the manual setting a bit better now, its just knowing when and which grad to use etc, etc,
The sun came out today and I dashed off but it started raining shortly after. Typical

I love the photo but Im still a little iffy on the sky, with that amount of work done to it I must admit I would be tempted to drop another sky into this one. Its the river thats the star... and how it shines..

the final result is so good compared to the raw files. Makes me think if I have anything I can do in the archive.
I am sure I wont get anything as good as this even if I have your raw file.
