    Default Photo manipulation

    I always said I would not replace skies in post production. However, I am starting to rethink that. The new Photoshop sky replacement tool is really fun and creates opportunities for some creative plays.

    This is a black and white photo with a colour sky replacement

    But you already had a beautiful sky in a similar image. Didn't you remove the sky in the black and white image for the effect?

    The original black and white version was taken with a totally blue sky (grey after BW conversion). It was taken on a different day to the one you have added

    I agree the photo you have added is a nice enough sky and I wouldn't plan replace that.

    Certainly I could have taken a black and white sky (or converted a colour sky from a different photo) to to add to the black and white photo. In fact I was heading down that path before I made the photo above.

    I kind of liked the effect of the blended colour and black and white photo. Like I said a creative play. One day in the future, I may look back on this and cringe (like I have with some of my early HDR or spot colour)

    Since I have shared it on social media I think most people haven't realised it is a photo manipulation and think the foreground is white.

    More generally, the Photoshop sky replacement tool is very effective. I have always been aware of the sky and its impact on photos (you will see multiple comments on this forum where I speak of the sky), but in "playing" with the Photoshop tool, I still amazed by the difference in photos.
