    I have a photo that has a good subject and decent composition, but the point and pray that took the photo skews color regularly. I also did not have a polarizing filter so the sky was very washed out. I only took the one shot of this so it is all I have.

    It took me probably an hour to figure out how to use layers, masks, and select tool together in the attempt to fix colors and increase saturation in the sky.

    "Fixed" I say that because I gave up due to my own technical limitations. Three layers, one for sky, and two that combined the two best of my color adjustments. I wanted adjust the masks to use more of one in one area but gave up before I got that.

    Looks pretty good. Figure out how to dodge and burn, that will help too.
