Layers adjustments have been a cornerstone of nondestructive image editing in the modern Photoshop era. But are they always the best way to work on your pictures?

Monthly Photo Assignment
Fire is this month's photo assignment. With Fourth of July behind us, plus wild fires raging across the Northern California landscape, fire is top of mind for me. As always, there are many ways to interpret this assignment. You can read more about how to submit on our Submissions page. Deadline for entry is July 31.
