This "additive" method, as opposed to an editing or corrective method, takes advantage of the Luminance Channel in the LAB Color Mode. I particularly like this method because
- it is non-destructive to your original photo, which is always the best way to go when making any kind of adjustments or changes to your photographs;
- it uses a Blending Mode that gracefully combines areas of overlying pixels, adding richer color effects;
- and adds saturation, unlike many other methods.
