    Default Re-Colouring Skies

    Just wondering if i could only change the colour of a night sky without affecting the skyscraper buildings in the photo, i've seen photos with beautiful though unrealistic nightsky colours withought having the buildings in the photo be tinted with the said colour cast of the sky, wonders how it is being done...

    thanks !!

    Do you use Photoshop? The links below lead to tutorials relating to making sky blue and depending on the photo, the same technique may be applied to night sky.

    There are lots of other tutorials at the site and you may wish to explore and find one that addresses your need.
