Weather project 3: Clearing a cloudy sky

The subject photograph represents a common problem: It’s your once-in-a-lifetime trip, and on the day you visit a world-famous landmark, the weather doesn’t cooperate. Your picture looks dull, which curtails your bragging rights to friends and family.

In the sample picture you’ll use for this project, the sky above the chateau holds almost no hint of blue, so using a blending mode to intensify it is no help. Instead, you’ll use another photograph of cheerful blue skies and paste it into the chateau image. For a convincing touch of realism, you’ll add a lens flare, as if the sun caught your camera.
