Using Luminosity Masks to Merge Photos

One of the biggest challenges in photography is dealing with high dynamic range. Simply put, our camera is not capable of capturing the full range of brightness to darkness that we see with our eyes. There are several ways that we can deal with high dynamic range. If the issue is a bright sky, we can try am make use of graduated neutral density filters. In some situations, these work very well and allow us to capture the image in one shot. The problem is, many times the delineation between the sky and the darker parts of the image are not anywhere near a straight line. When this happens, we may get lucky and have enough detail in the shadows caused by the filter to blend the darker area
