Contrast Adjustments Using Tonal Area Luminosity Masks

This is my longest tutorial yet. In this tutorial I use Tonal Area Luminosity Masks in order to add contrast to the image based on small tonal ranges within it. I use this method to create separation between areas in the image where tonal ranges are very similar, and these tools make it easier to separate them. Using Tonal Area Masks also allows you to push the contrast adjustments quite a bit further then you might typically be able to with a standard luminosity mask or a simple adjustment layer.

I also use the color range tool to make a restricted selection as well as the High Pass filter to make reflections in the water pop out.
