Customizing contrast

This photograph was taken in bright mid-morning light, and This building detail was shot on an overcast morning This the Hard Mix layer's opacity had to be set to under 50% recipe helps to bring out the cold light before any detail became apparent in the walls

In this example, the Hard Mix layer's fill opacity worked best at around 50% At 100% it bleached the image
