In this tutorial I paint the water in the image to bring back the colour to be a more true representation of what it looked like on the day, and use Luminosity Masks to control the areas affected.
Colour can often be one of the more challenging aspects of editing an image. There are literally hundreds of ways that colour can be affected. The most common ways to affect colour are white balance, HSL (Hue Saturation & Luminance), RGB in Curves and Levels, Vibrance and Selective Color adjustment layers. Although many of these tools are great for working with your color, it can still be quite difficult to bring in the color that you want.
By directly selecting the color you want from your image or color palette you can paint it directly onto your image. In this tutorial I show you how to do just that, then use a luminosity mask to control the luminance of the area painted and to restrict what gets affected.
