Weird problem today - doing layers as usual, but have found, on putting a new sky in, I can see faint shadow of the layer below - even though I used a layer mask to remove old sky.

Both photos taken with a 5D & 16-35 lens.

Any ideas?

main photo: 1/125 f11 24mm iso 400
sky: 1/80 f22 33mm iso 200

Was your brush tool at 100% when masking?

yes - thats why I can't understand it.

I deleted all my layers and re-did from the beginning - still the same result - nothing to do with different iso???

I just wonder - if my black isn't true black will that make a difference (following on from that, it looks black to me, but is it?)

Blending mode? Also, were you painting on the mask with either total black or total white?

I've done it lots of times before which is why its puzzling me.

what happens if you hide the layer below? Can you see the checkboard background?

how exactly do you have the layers set up? Is the Main photo above the sky layer or is it the other way around?

You can check if your black is pure black by clicking on the foreground color and making sure it's 0 0 0. If you're checking the color in the mask, use the info window and check the "K" value of the mask. 100% is black 0% is white. Make sure the mask is selected though.

Sure, do a screen shot of your layers panel, and maybe a crop of your image showing the actual problem!

Make your Background copy 2 active and click on the mask. Select the Info tool. Make sure you can see the Info panel. Look at the values, RGB should all be 0. Move the eyedropper over different parts where the tree is bleeding thru.

in mask :
For black have : c 0% Y 0% m 0% k 97%

white c 0% y 0% m 0% k 1%

can't find RGB

hang on : went into 'colour' F6 - and my black was only 97% black - will have a look at it once I have filled with 'proper' black
