…I like to think that when Garrus and Femshep “retire somewhere tropical”, they just get a beach house where they have epic water fights with the rest of the Normandy crew.
Side note: who says well-placed cutouts are exclusive to human swimsuits? :D

IS THAT SISSEL
SISSEL DID YOU SAVE ME FROM DYING VIA MACH 5 WASHING MACHINE
That pesky sky, amirite? So many times, we want to make beautiful landscape images and are plagued by the dreaded “sky too bright/land too dark” problem. No one piece of equipment can alleviate this problem, but I have a simple solution (no tripod necessary!). All you need is basic Photoshop knowledge. No trekking up mountains with your tripod and hoping all of your exposures line up in post.
So, you take an image, like the one above. Bring it into Lightroom and make two virtual copies (so you have three total). Develop one image so the sky is perfectly exposed, develop the second so the mountains look perfect, and the third for the river. Select all three images and right click to open them as layers in Photoshop.
Once you have them open, create masks for each layer, revealing only the area you have developed for and voila! You have a beautiful, perfectly exposed image made from only one original shot. It’s not always fool-proof, as sometimes you can clip certain parts of the image if you aren’t careful, but nearly always works quite well.
