Multiple Exposures

Although it is sometimes frowned upon, the combining of multiple Exposures can really take your photos to the next Level when used in good taste. Like all good things in life, the key to combining multiple Exposures is to not overdo anything. By using Curves to Lighten our Shadows and Darken our Highlights, we get an image that has a lot of visible detail but still doesn’t appear fake. Adding Colors helps to give the image a solid color scheme, again, without overdoing it.

Selective Sharpening

Sharpening is a great way to add very small highlights to an image. By using the standard high pass sharpening method and masking it out where we don’t want it, we get sparkling Highlights only where the beams of Light hit the ground. We can then do the opposite, creating a fuzzy layer and masking it in where we don’t want to Draw attention, such as the upper corners of the image.
