After numerous questions about how I handle those complex blends, it's finally time to release the behind-the-scenes look at this epic mountainscape from the Dolomites.

This is two hours’ worth of processing in Lightroom and Photoshop, and it includes my entire workflow that's free of purist moral bounds. You will get to see how I combine many images into one piece of landscape art. Focus Stacking, Perspective Blending, Color Dodging and Lighting Effects; it's all included. Take your time to pick apart what’s going on in this "Watch me Edit" video. This package also includes a smaller PSD that contains all layers and adjustments used.

Tip: Double-click the smart-objects in that PSD to open all layers contained within.
