My original post ........
What would be useful in L4 is the ability to edit the original (existing) sky using the AI Sky Replacement technology (ie utilizing the AI to select within (ie between) tree branches, leaves etc).
With a simple click the sky could be selected and HSL, Contrast (whatever) edits could be made.
Ideally, this should be included within the current AI Sky Replacement tool/panel.

AI Sky Enhancer is already available in Luminar 4:
Please open Essentials > AI Enhance > AI Sky Enhancer.

#1 Using the AI Sky Repacement technology to 'edit' existing skys.
As the AI Sky Repacement is quite effective in selecting sky areas between tree branches, leaves etc it would be a most suitable tool to select skys for editing.
With the sky selected other tools in L4 could be used to edit - Hue, Saturation, Lightness, Contrast (as mentioned above) ... as well as being able to use L4's Tools - Light, Colour, Structure, Details Enhancer, LUT, Advanced Contrast, Dodge and Burn ... and so on.
#2 AI Sky Enhancer is a one slider effect and not suitable for what I'm suggesting.
Currently in Photoshop (2020) in order to select skys for editing (and I'm referring to skys that need to be selected between branches, leaves, etc) a number of selection tools need to be brought into play - with each selection saved as a channel mask then all hit together as one selection ... quite time consuming.
AI Sky Replacement technology, while admittedly currently not 100% perfect, if it could be used as a selection tool for existing sky editing it would save a truck load of time!
