    4  Get deeper blacks
    To create a more striking contrast between the darkest shadows and the brightest highlights, set the Blacks slider to 14. Press U to view the clipped shadows. A little shadow clipping is acceptable in this case, as there are no key details in the ruined building’s darkest areas.

    5 Enhance the midtone contrast
    The distant hills look a little washed out, so to boost the midtone contrast in the hills and other areas of detail, drag the Clarity slider right to +30. This also reveals more detail in the stonework and clouds. You’ve now enhanced the image’s shadows, midtones and highlights.

    6  Improve the colours
    By pushing the Vibrance slider up to +20 you can strengthen the weaker colours in the image without the risk of oversaturating stronger ones – in this case it makes the blue sky more vivid. You can also boost the overall colour intensity by increasing Saturation to +10.
