The "isolate then adjust" technique - discover anunconventional way to make localised adjustments (eg. colour correction) to specific areas without them being influenced by other light, dark, or discoloured parts of the scene
How to create and use depth maps in your layer masking. Depth in landscape images is important, and elements at different distances often require different treatment depending on your vision for the finished image.
Learn how to create a depth map that can be used as a layer mask on your adjustments so you can easily and automatically affect foreground elements to higher or lower degrees than background elements (and vice versa).
How to "borrow" the most useful part of Photoshop's Sky Replacement tool. It's pretty clever, but it isn't the complete package when it comes to believably blending a sky from one shot into another. But there's one underlying feature within it that is really useful, and which you can steal to use in your own wicked ways!
How to "finish the job" that Photoshop's sky replacement tool attempts to start. This feature is pretty good at what it does. But it doesn't do the full job of blending a new sky into an image. There's a fair bit more that goes into a believable blend than just copy/pasting the sky, masking it in, and roughly matching colour. Here you're learning how to take over from where Photoshop leaves off to complete the job
How to fix a blurry sun star. Not every lens in every situation can produce a nice clean and sharp sun star. Sometimes through no fault of our own we're left with nothing more than a blurry suggestion of where a good looking sun star should be. Luckily, there are some techniques we can use to rescue these sun blobs and transform them into the star of the image (pun intended!)
