This may be asking the unanswerable, but thought I would put this out to all of you.
I have several photographs that include large portions of blue sky. The shots are urban landscapes, not nature scenes. I am working with a color managed system...C1 to LR viewing on a Eizo monitor and printing with an Epson 3800 on Hahnemuhle Fine Art Baryta.
As I prepare these photos for final output I am occasionally stumped/ puzzled on determining the right color/sat/hue for the sky. I wonder if anyone has a few methods to make those final adjustments on the rendering of blue skies?
It is likely that several of these shots will be shown together and while I don't expect all of them to match I am concerned that as a group some sky colors will look off in relationship to the others.
What I have considered is take some RBG measurements of the ones that look the most natural/ right and then adjust the others to match or closely match. It seems that you reach a point that blue sky looks too dark or too saturated if you push the sliders around too much.
Thank you in advance for anyone who can share their experience with this.
