You can do this one in either Lightroom or Photoshop’s Camera Raw. It just take five seconds, but it can make a world of difference in your skies.

STEP ONE: Here’s the original image, and as you can see the sky is kinda “meh.” Go to the HSR/Color panel and click on the Luminance tab up top.

STEP TWO: In that Luminance Tab (in the HSL/Color Panel) drag the Blue slider to the left (as seen above) to bring out the blues in the sky. The farther to the left you drag, the bluer the sky gets. That’s all there is to it.

Above: Here’s a side-by-side before and after. Told ya it was a quick tip!

Here’s wishing you a blue-sky week! :)
