Well, you been had. It's just a shot of a road here in flat, rural and boring Ol' Arkansas.

Nice skies in both images. I could do without the yellow road sign in the first. I'd also back off of the processing in the 2nd, you've got some strong halos around the combine.

David, I am a beginner, I was wondering what you meant by “halos”? Thanks

I'm in the same beginner boat but might be able to help.
The halo he is referring to is the bright "outline" around the combine where I exposure blended and was lazy and didn't fix them. I just watched a YouTube video where you take the clone stamp with a overlay blend mode and clean it right up.

Another mode which works great is the DARKEN mode. Use the clone stamp, sample from the sky near the edge and a soft brush at about 80%. Darken mode only covers the lighter edges - like so...

That's worked well, though still has a "punched out" feel. I will use the blur tool at low percentage - 40-50 - and small brush size, then go over the edges to soften them just a touch after the darken clone.

Cheers Pete. Thanks for the tip! Always nice to get good ideas from the gurus :)
