Pack it in please guys - let's get back to nice pictures, purlease!!
RAW. This is an export from the RAW. . Do you have some good filters for lightroom? I use classic not the newer one as there seems to be less flexibility in the newer one.it would be easier to use filters in lightroom Moriath try that before PS . Do you take in JPEG, RAW or both?
Is it easy to just limit it to the sky? Guess i have to run off to google now
I have a standard apply button that does some stuff. Like correct for lens and stuff. Sometimes the sky is a problem cause the settings you need for the land make the sky too light. I have to work out how i can mask parts of the picture so the changes only apply to that .Lightroom is somewhat limited for major work, but as already mentioned just using the grad filter then any problem areas you could just dodge/burn to lighten/darken etc can save time.
Tweaking the Highlights can also bring down the sky and expose more clouds too sometimes. heres a before and after, JUST using the highlights slider..certainly with RAW files it can drag out details you might think were blown out.
I used to spend ages tweaking and changing mine, I try to follow the same flow now, then save them as presets. since the workflow is similar it can save a ton fo time, very handy for removing things like dust spots on the sensor too.. since its always int he same place, ever shot will have it.
