    Thanks so much for this tutorial! I live in Alaska and take lots of landscapes and have been wondering how to make them look better! I already have these actions, so I’m going to try them out on a landscape right away!

    Banff–that was my backyard growing up! I’m glad you enjoyed it there. Now I live in Florida, but I just returned from taking my kids back to Alberta. Always love your tutorials, especially this one!
