    Hi, The vedio was extremly useful. I even managed to create the effect out of a similar shot. But I am facing problems with another photo, where the sky is there till the end with subject ( a building) in the center.When i do this, the top of the sky becomes blue (thats my settings in file 1), but unfortunately the bottom becomes white as thats my settings in file 2). how can i over come this?

      You can play with the gradient and make sure it overlaps your ‘landscape’ layer enough so it doesn’t turn white at the bottom.

  • A pleasant surprise, it occurs seldom, but the following we can speak of a real bonus value towards person who reads.

  • What a amazing write up, I didn’t sense that you may locate one thing underneath.
