To igor_wo: could you tell some more about the picture

  • Hi Igor,
    Sorry I forgot the technical stuff so here goes.
    Shot in B&W mode and metered to put the dark crops just in the histogram range.
    In PS:
    Adjusted curves to push the mid tones but this left the highlights in the sky to bright.
    used a duplicate layer set to multiply at 40% opacity and masked that layer so that it only effected the sky.
    Created an adjustment layer in softlight mode and used a white brush set at 10% to brighten the lightest parts of the sky and the crops where the low sun was hitting them.
    Sharpened
    Hope that makes up for my oversight.
    Yours
    Richard
