|Creating a polarized sky|
|There are 2 modes we can create a polarized sky:
Open the image you want to apply the polarized sky. Here is mine: Observe that the sky is dull and it’s not as great looking as I would like to.
|Create a new layer and apply on it a gradient from the most dark blue of the sky of your image (You can take it with color picker) to white. Your gradient should take the form of the sky; here is mine:|

is the final image:
