Thanks for the kind words everyone, comments are always appreciated
@JimFox - Yup, no problem sharing at all. I usually get a PM or two when I post stuff like this, so I figured just easier to tell everyone how it's done. In addition to "brush blending" I've also been playing with the "blend if" sliders under the "Blending Options" and sometimes that works sometimes I can't get a nice transition. The first photo was actually a combo of both techniques.
@AndrewThomas - Have a great time up there, planning on heading back up myself, but it's still a couple weeks off for me.
