A photographer I do follow is Woody Walters of Digital Photo Candy.. and he has taught me quite a lot about photoshop. Woody, hosts a member’s section, but does give free tips for Photoshop.
Today he was talking about filling in those hotspots, like bits of sky. He said it draws your attention to the whole photo and not just the highlights.
I need to practice with the cloning tool a bit more… but I can see by my own image how getting rid of those highlights of the sky draws your eye away from the sky bits to the woodland.
Thank you, Woody, I’m definitely going to practice this tip …
