Hi

I dont use masks much and it shows.
Ok I think I managed to isolate the sky  but I really struggled not to darken the mist.
I was sort of pleased with the compromise I made in the end
I tried to find a SHN as a starting point but did not succeed
chose to try get rid of the blue in the shadows :-
I decided to lighten up the foreground a bit using shadow/highlight
then went back into lab for colour and contrast
I think the sky is a bit too cyan but every time I tried to adjust I messed the clouds up so I left it alone
I spent quite a while on this and I'm not sure I have made much difference

What color space are you using in Photoshop?

The "Save for Web" uses RGB as a default.  If you are using another space in PS you might see a difference when you save for web.

Julie,
We addressed this in the call last week...The adjusted mask on the L channel should allow you to do most everything you need here...
