Sunset!

Ever wondered why you can see wonderful sunset images on the web, but your own images never turned out so saturated and even?
That´s why the contrast between sky and landscape are a stretch for any digital sensor. But there is hope, you can easily adjust that in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.

This is the shot taken from the camera:

This is the shot after some PP:

Here you can download the Photoshop document to analyse it, (you can adjust the curves level, if you´d like to lighten up the whole image):

If you don´t know what to do with the curves level, you can look at the histogram, do you see a hidden curve there?
Here is a possible curve to fit that histogram. It works in many cases and it´s always worth a try!
