Add some con­trast

Practical Photography (UK) - - Photoshopgenius... -

Back in the Lay­ers pal­ette, add an­other Curves Ad­just­ment Layer. This time, in­stead of drag­ging the curve down­ward, click in the top quar­ter and drag up, and in the bot­tom quar­ter and drag down, mak­ing an S-shape, which will add con­trast to the im­age. The con­trast may be too strong in some places, but us­ing the at­tached mask we can con­trol its in­ten­sity as be­fore. Us­ing a large, soft-edged Brush, paint Black into the mask to de­crease the ef­fect of the Ad­just­ment Layer. Here, I masked out most of the sky and some parts of the fore­ground, which had be­come too dark.
