I dragged myself out of bed at 5am this morning, and walked a mile down to the beach. It was worth it, because there was a gorgeous sunrise. However, I forgot to take my ND Grad filters.
The only solution I could think of was to take two photos of everything - one exposing for the sky, one for the sea / land.
I've tried combining them into an HDR image, and I don't like the look - the clouds are out of sync on the image. So I thought that I could perhaps layer them in Photoshop. I know how to layer files and erase selections, but my question is - what is the best way to blend them at the 'seam' - is there a way in Photoshop to use Gaussian Blur on just the edges of a layer?
Not sure I've phrased this too well.
Does it make any sense?
