Another top mod by Frank. What a difference you make to photographs.

Hello Pradyoth,

As Frank says, this is quite a tricky shot to capture in one exposure because of the contrast between the sky and the shadows in the foreground (obviously!)
So! Not being one to turn down a challenge I've had a go at a mod. I've selectively adjusted the dark parts of the foreground using the shadows/highlights tool, then done the same to the central section with the red bricks and roof. I also added some contrast here, I didn't apply any to the foreground. The sky's a part of one that I shot somewhere, probably whilst walking the dog.
Hope it's OK.

@Frank and Bren, a lot of thanks for your valuable comments. The modification uploaded by you are fantastic. It gave an absolute new dimension to the image I have uploaded. I will try to know how, in photoshop, sky can be replaced. In most of my pictures the sky becomes so dull that it ruins the picture in total. Recently I have got Photoshop CS4. Is that be able to use as a tool to replace the sky as you have done.
Thanks Frank, in hindu mythology it is said , always spread your hands , you will find a friend there. You have proven it truth. i will be highly oblighed , if you kindly send it.

CS4's a tremendous tool and Frank's email instructions will probably be fine with it.
Also, it's well worth looking at the techniques section in Epz. There are tutorials on how to do just about anything. I know, for example, that there is at least one which explains how to replace a background, in this case the sky.
In fact there are hundreds of tutorials on the web.
And then there's the critique gallery. If you ever need to know how to achieve or correct soemthing using CS4, there will always be someone here who will be pleased to help you, as Frank has done in this case.
Beware though, CS4's a huge learning curve but if your careful and patient, it will pay huge dividends.

Your original is a god record image, but both mods show where you should be going. The trouble with any image like this is that they must have an explanation. This would mean nothing to the average viewer elsewhere in the world otherwise.
