Hi all,

This is one of my first attempts at blending and I'd very much appreciate any feedback please.

The original shot held the sky, but lost nearly all of the detail in the foreground.

Many thanks,
Jenny

when doing digital blending of landscape shot the trick is to blur the mask(i prefer to blur the mask very heavily) then you use very soft brush painting on mask again to undo
the undesirable effect of blurring the mask. if you look at your picture far away hills do not blend well with the sky ,they look weird , once you blur the mask it would solve the problem.

Hi Nittaya,

Many thanks for the feedback. I decided to go back to a non-blended working of the photo. I did try blurring the edges of the mask more, but I wasn't 100% about the results.

Thanks,
Jenny
