When I first looked at this image I felt it would look better in Black and White and with the sky darkened down slightly. On closer examination of the sky I could see some spots caused by dust on my camera sensor. It is important to remove these spots before darkening the sky otherwise they will show up even more.  So in this video we first look at how we can find and remove these spots, then darken the sky before converting to Black and White or toning the image.

Some of the topics covered in this video include:-

– Layers
– Removing dust spots (1:00)
– Darkening the sky (4:17)
– Adjustment Layers
– Black and White, toning (6:31)
