A quick manip of the shot I posted in today's Daily
. Yeah, it's probably overdone, but at least it shows the possibilities of this adjustment.
I used PhotoShop's Match Color adjustment:
1) Open the base image and duplicate the layer. I always make such adjustments on a duplicated layer so I can decrease the intensity of the effect (actually it's opacity of the duplicated and adjusted layer) or try different blend modes, or choose where and how strongly to show the adjustment by painting on a layer mask with white, gray, and/or black..
2) Select another image with colors you'd like to apply to the base image. (My al-time favorite sunset photo.)
3) With the duplicated layer selected on the base image, choose Image > Adjustments > Match Color.
4) In the Source field of the window that pops up, select the second image you opened. (If the second image you opened has layers, select which layer you want to use as the source for the colors.)
5) I rarely change the sliders (Luminance, Color Intensity, and Fade), but sometimes putting a check in the box next to Neutralize creates a better look.
Be aware that results will vary depending on the colors and values of both images. It doesn't always turn out exactly as you'd expect, but in this case it gave a nice result the first time.
