That is a really neat example. The difference between 8 bit and 16 bit
is huge. Can you give some more detail about the manipulation that was
done here. Personally, I would have selected the sky and the grass
seperately. Then I would have applied different corrections for each
selection and saved the image as *.psd, i.e. with the curve
corrections. That way I do not change the origional image and can make
as many changes to the curves/levels as I wish. I use this always with
8-bit after making major adjustments in 16-bit. If there is a better
technique (and I am sure there is) please give us some more info.
