Bryan Posted December 26, 2017 Share Posted December 26, 2017 I can normally reduce sky noise by importing two LR raw conversions into PS, one with significant noise reduction, and use layers to apply that to the sky only. However I have discovered a set of unprocessed photos from 2016 ( NEX6 ISO 100) where, for some reason, this is not working as effectively as I would like. I generally give the sky a bit of a lift in levels and can normally get away with it, but not this time. Applying additional noise control in PS helps a bit, but isn't the full answer. Curiously, if I apply a linear curves adjustment, I also see banding in the sky in one of the shots, not a real problem as I can mask that off, but it's another symptom of the malaise. The shots were taken with wide angle lenses, 12 and 19mm, bright days, dark blue skies. Any idea what is going wrong? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
