3. Adjusting the brightness
The image is a bit too bright to start with, so we can switch to the Brightness section of the Global Adjustments panel on the right. Reducing the Dynamic Brightness value gives a better result here than the regular Brightness slider.
4. Darkening the sky
I want the top of the sky to be a little darker, and while Silver Efex Pro 2 doesn’t have graduated filter effects, it does have a Burn Edges panel which can achieve the same thing. Here, I’ve clicked the button for the top edge and adjusted the Strength and Size values to get the darkening effect I want.
5. Adding a border
The picture’s working much better now and I’ll finish it off with a solid black border. Silver Efex Pro’s Borders panel offers a range of types and effects, but no. 13, a plain, unadorned black, is all we need here.
