Default Deeping shadow enhanced by Surfer31

Thanks for the workshop. Can you talk me through what you did in more detail? I'm something of a Photoshop amateur...

>Made an alpha mask on the areas lit by the sun and corrected the colors and contrast using Levels and the Curves to fine tune in PS.

What is an alpha mask? I do I create one using PS 7? Do you use a feathered selection (I've learnt that!)?

>Then I selected only the sky and worked out the colors. I didn't "touch" the shadow areas because I like the contrast between the volcano and the rocks in the foreground.

Worked out the colours? You mean desaturated or what?

Thanks for your advice, Bruce
