Bending the processing rules
In Edinburgh at the weekend, I wanted to capture the Bank of Scotland building on the Mound. The sky was amazing blue, and I had noticed that the St Andrews cross created by the jet trails. My problem was that the foreground was in deep shadow. So, I took some bracketed shots with a view to layering them.

I know that Photoshop Elements will align images to create a panorama. So what if I used the three bracketed shots to do that?
Well, you can judge for yourself below. I’m quite pleased with the result. (However, I do need to learn
Who says you have to follow the processing rules?
