Instead of using transparency gradients, how about a brush with limited
Its much more controllable than the gradients IMO.
Sacha Griffin mentioned this process-
"You can create rgb channel masks, using an alternative white balance for
It's only a 5 second process and works great."
Perhaps you can elaborate on this Sacha? It does sound interesting.

Shawn, that's what I call "time consuming" task. It's more or less the
way I'm doing the corrections (I use Photo Filter Adjustment layers in
CS3 and mask the parts I don't need) but the masks sometimes are hard
to do without using transparency gradients or the edges will show up
on some areas where the WB is correct. I was wondering if anyone had a
different (magic??) approach to this :)
