ON1 Workflow – Replacing Skies in ON1 Effects

It is unfortunate that we can’t always have the most abundant skies when we are out and about.  My wife always says, “It’s a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky!”  I can’t stand it, as a landscape photographer we need those puffy softboxes to drown out shadows and add interest to that big blue blob of negative space.
