    Thank you a lot for this very useful tutorial…
    I think that the black spots on your pictures are dust spots. Could it be? In this case you should clean your sensor.
    Thank you once again…

    Hi Serge, thanks for the video. Just wondering, could you have done the same effects in lightroom instead of using the Color Efex pro? I believe you could, but whats the pros n cons? thanks!

  • Reply jdawg101 September 3, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    Thanks for the awesome video! I was wondering if it's possible to use Photoshop Elements 11 instead of Photoshop CS6? The latter is so expensive…

  • Reply Divinity September 7, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    Serge this technique was a serious breakthrough for me…thank you so much for educating me and making landscapes more fun then ever

    Great tutorial, however I think you could have stopped the process right before you jumped into the 3rd party software… before that (I thought) it was perfect.

    Wow this was a fantastic video….. Thanks a lot!

  • Reply twoheadedelvis September 27, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    For what he did in Photoshop, Elements 11 will do just fine (that's what I own as well).

  • Reply Artsdream Photography December 15, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    Petite remarque toute bête, à 12:40 lorsque tu reviens sur lightroom pour corriger la deformation géometrique, au final tu synchronises les deux photos avec les réglages basique. (en somme tu annules ta correction) petite erreur du à l'imprevu j'imagine, juste pour que tu soit au courant.

    Mais je tiens à dire que ta vidéo est parfaitement exécuté dans l'ensemble, j'y ai appris pas mal de choses. Et vivement la suite 🙂

    The result you obtain with your photos in your tutorials are so amazing.
    But I would be curious to see the result @100%, to see how much noise and artifacts you introduce with such extreme post-production

    Great, helpful video! I'm new with Lightroom, and I've got a problem already. When I import my raw pictures, they become really underexposed. Is this normal? Is there a way Lightroom can see my pictures the way I took them? I hope somebody can help me. Thank you in advance!

    Oh hello! Have you tried – Pycane DSLR Camera Tricks (should be on google have a look)? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my co-worker shot some cool results with it.

  • Reply Erik ErXoN April 18, 2014 at 1:36 am

    Well Serge, I can teach you a trick, how to avoid spots at f22 – clean your lens and sensor 🙂 simple as that. And there is nothing to do with aperture as you say, you understand that more aperture is closed more details comes out, dust and dirt are details too, so – clean your sensor and enjoy spotless shots. When you said that dirt is something to do with aperture I laughed but I had to write it here too as you will confuse amateurs and they will think that everytime they will get a dirt when they shoot landscapes, what is not true, as long as lens is clean.

    Thats it 🙂 Good tutorials tho, quite detailed, people will learn a lot.
    Good luck and enjoy spotless shots.

    Really really annoying that cannot get rid of the "Get source files…" message. Try to click on the 'X' but it disappears so you can't click on it so you cannot follow what you are doing with the sliders. Why do you put it there. Very annoying.

  • Reply Dennis Donders February 13, 2017 at 11:06 pm

    Thanks for this tutorial. I love to play with multiple exposure blending. What can you say about the best settings for this? How much exposures? 2 exposures (1 dark, 1 light) or 3 exposures (for example -1 0 1). Or maybe more, like -2 -1 0 1 2 etcetera.
    And if you work with 3 (or more exposures), could you beter use 1 stop different -1 0 1, or 2 stops -2 0 2???

    I'm looking very much to the correct values
