    Hi, can i just ask how did you get the selection you used in your masks? The one you used in the Curves 2, saturation mask etc..

      Hi Mike.. I use Luminance masks for that… you can look for instance here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOkRjqm73X8 to see how they are created

    If you don’t mind I have one last question.. when do you do luminosity masking? after photomatix or when you don’t use photomatix?

      I use luminiosity masking instead of photomatix. But you can also use it to finish up a photomatix result. Depends on your preference.
