And keep in mind: a smart photographer/artist is someone who also knows when NOT to create selections. If you don’t need them and can solve it in an easier and faster way, then don’t waste your time.
This article describes and suggests a practical step-by-step method for fine-art processing, purely seen from an artistic and aesthetic point of view without going into the technical aspects of Photoshop at all, as I firmly believe Photoshop skills shouldn’t be decisive.
