Now the dome is relit but it isn't color corrected so let's do that next.…I want to mention that in general you want to…relight before you color correct, since relighting may change the color.…And if you color correct first you may need to do it again after relighting.…Let's do a little more organization on the layer names.…What's labeled Side Details is actually the dark…side boxes. And layer two is the light side boxes.…Let's add an adjustment layer to the group to add color correction non-destructively.…
Select the domes group, go down to the bottom and add a curves adjustment layer.…It comes in inside the group, you need to move it just above the group.…Then Option or…Alt click on the line between the group to make…the adjustment layer just effect the layers in a dome group.…This color correction won't be as extreme as the one we did…on the base of the castle, since the dome is already reddish.…We know the dome needs to be darker, so pull down on the RGB white point.…
The dark side is getting a little darker than it should be.…
