(1) Lee Hard GND 0.9 was used in balancing lightness of foreground and sky.
(2) In post processing, I replace the crystal clear sky of original shot with more attractive one.
(3) Generally, I like to use ‘Dodge – Burn’ tool for enhancing dramatic impact to the shot, such as bring out more detail, grasp viewers’ attention, or increase local contrast. I normally choose “Highlight” range setting for dodge tool and “Shadows” setting for burn tool. Carefully dodge highlights and burn shadows a little bit. Don’t go to far as it will make the photo unrealistic.
