Thanks so much Gil! Appreciate the too! This is "Magic Sky" using only 1 image and Lightroom2. Yes I really like Lr2 and don't think I will be getting PS Elements 7 any time soon. ....... but I do have my eye on the 5D Mark II (and will get it - why I bought all those "L" lenses.
It is just using the new brush tool to lighten, darken, sharpen, saturate, contrast, sharpen, etc. No plug in. Lightroom2 has some neat tools (Gradiant ND too! though not used here) not available in other PS products. Magic Sky was my original post using HDR. This looks more natural.
Thanks so much Andy. This was taken the same time I took [link] and [link] This image was only processed in Lightroom2. Slightly different view and a little softer but I like it better out of the three. Can across it while trying to organize my work and decided to repost. Anyway... thanks for the too!
