    change wedding dress colour from black to ivory

    make a blank layer and paint ivory over the dress. change the blending mode to difference. after that use a duplicate background layer, drag it on top and use blend if to change the diamonds back to white. this method keeps the dress from pixelating.

    How to give a house picture the "blue sky" "sparkling light" effect

    to be honest, no photoshop is needed. it is used to polish what is already captured, but the brilliant blue sky and lights were already there. you don't need a long exposure. just shoot during blue hour, that hour before sunrise and after sunset when the sky loses the reddish hues and turns...

    How can I achieve this?

    try using the photocopy filter to get the b&w silhouette. or if you're feeling ambitious use the pen tool to make a path around the outline of the subject you want to be black then fill the selection. after that it's pretty much what dv8 said, use a layer filled with white or a light texture.

    100% mine # 2

    very nice, the only thing that really jumps out at me is the perspective of the building and the grass in front of it. it's good to the left of the girl, but looks really high to the right.

    does this image look post processed?

    if it was post processed i'd say they didn't do anything more than adjust the white balance, contrast, saturation and sharpen. just the standard workflow.
