Full Edit: With Just Curves, Masks and Gradients

Here’s an edit of an image using just Curves, with masks and gradients being used to shape the light. Editing with light means just changing tones, and we do this with Curves, then further shape the effect created. Gradients applied to masks allow for gentle transitions that are generally not visible to the eye.
