Four ways to edit a scene and selectively adjust the way it looks
Shooting landscape images is a careful balance of being in the right place at the right time. And when it comes to processing, the aim is always to take advantage of this careful co-ordination and good luck to achieve the best image possible.
What that image actually looks like is, of course, subjective. But with the right approach, it’s possible to take full control of a wide range of simple effects that look completely natural – and that’s the backbone of any type of landscape photography that doesn’t fall into the category of digital art.

To do this we’ll be using Adjustment Layers and colour channels to achieve a quartet of refined effects.
