    Tried this out and its great. Very quick and easy to do. Tried to compare against just doing levels and, although I'm a beginner with photoshop, I think it gives better results than levels alone.

    That is a great technique.

    I'm not one for Photoshop techniques usually, but that one fair impressed me... I reckon come summer that would be well useful for some of the landscape shots.

    Great technique. Thanks for sharing mate.

    Just had a quick go and coming from a photoshop noob, it's a simple but effective technique. Also an easy one where I wasn't alt+tabbing back and fourth to do it. One watch of video and remembered straight away.

    Yep it's very good - and actually quite quick just using curves and dragging the sliders.

    This is a great tool in photoshop. I have been using it the past two weeks and it's just brilliant.

    It even seems to correct the colour shift i get when using the B+W ten stopper... if it can do that as well, it's insanely useful! :)

    It does correct colour, though sometimes when you don't want it. I tried it on one of my golden hour shots and it removed all the bleeding gold! :)

    lol

    no way. I notice it can make things a bit harder looking, so i have been using that opacity as well... so far i think i've used it on everything landscape (just to make sure and test it out)... but not the snakes :)

    I used to go nuts when that happened, now I just keep a duplicate of the shot before I use this technique and then use it to 'match colour'. That puts the original tones back in perfectly.

    This is good. I was doing it wrong or missing a step.
    I would drag the white till I seen clipping and the same with black and then I would let Lightroom set the WB.
