So I think there is a way to do this, but I can't quite figure out the right combination of blend modes or luminosity mask to get it to work.
I have two exposures from inside a house. I'm trying to get the properly exposed scenery outside and inside. I do not want the hyper-realistic effect of HDR. I just want the scenery outside the window from the underexposed shot and the inside scenery from the correctly (inside exposure) shot.
I am currently layering the two shots using the "add new image layer" function. Then masking the window with the brush tool. But it looks a bit unnatural because of tonal difference in the curtains and window sill. It's also very labour intensive, and I want to do a lot of these. Is there a way to layer the two shots and blend them in such a fashion that only the outside scenery exposure comes through from that layer. Because this exposure has the inside of the room very underexposed, one could easily separate the high luminosity from the lower, I just don't know how to do this.
