    The shot was taken on the grayest of sky days.....nothing but smog in the air and gray-white. I thought of putting in a sky from another shot to brighten up the shot, but......

    I know the sky looks fakeish and the white halo around the trees and "rock piles" are there, so....help me get ride of the halo and make the shot seem more realistic, please.

    It is a "Photoshop Challenge", so I placed your photo and plea for help into the Photoshop Challenges Forum, OK?

    And I think you get best results if you either post the original and let people work with it, or mail them your large version of this edit. There is little that can be done with a photo at this size. Less even when you have already done your part.

    Hi PNA--

    I'd leave the sky as it is. But add some saturation to the shot to bring out the color.... Here's what I did.

    OK, I tried SOMETHING, but I am not sure this is any good. I cannot avoid to have the little pyramid in the background look like a painted background...

    But at least I tried...

    Ahhhh, Florida. Pale blue goes well.....how did you avoid the halo around the trees?

    I selected the sky with the magic wand and set the feather to .5 (since the photo's so small only) ... and then I simply filled in the colour which I had chosen from the colour palette before. I cannot cut skies out of other pics and thus well place them into another photo. Amazing work!
