I’m wanting to apply selective darkening to an image using local adjustments, auto mask in particular. In a sample image, below, I tried to darken the sky. I selected a small size and began to paint in the lower EV. The edge detection did not work well on the clouds, but well along the length of the structure. Is there something wrong with my technique? I ensured that the inner circle did not touch anything but the blue of the sky.
I tried the same in On1 PhotoRaw and noticed that it handles the edges of all structures in the image very well. I’d hate to use On1 PR to have to accomplish what I want to do.
This is the kind of stuff I like to do: Work Sample
Any guidance is most appreciated.
