The main part of the meeting will continue our discussion on local area editing.
As per request, a part of the discussion will deal with the subject of replacing a sky in a photograph. We will then extend that to other subjects, including inserting an object into a photo. We will discuss and show examples, as well as discuss the traps and pitfalls you can run into.
If time permits, a second part of the discussion will discuss luminescence masking in local area editing.

Members may submit any photo on any topic or with any subject - as long as it is taken during the current quarter.
