It seems like virtually all outdoor or landscape photographs suffer from the same illness when they come out of the camera. The symptoms are:
- An overly bright sky
- Foreground that is too dark
- A general lack of color and contrast.
Fortunately, there is a cure for this ailment. Actually, as anyone who has worked with post-processing software for any length of time knows, there are a lot of different cures. But I want to show you a super simple way to fix pictures with these problems. I performed these fixes in Lightroom, but you can also do them on the Adobe Camera Raw screens of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
