Zizounai: There are lots of tutorials to turn day into night, I didn't find any to turn night into day. Maybe you should just do the opposite of what they say? ( 282 days ago )

This was done using brightness/contrast adjustments, screen mode layers, curves, levels, color overlay for blue sky, lots of masking of various areas, some dodge and burn. I haven't made an SBS because I changed and deleted too many layers before I got an end result with which I was happy. (287 days ago)
