    That's a great idea

    Or you could go whole hog and make a contrast reduction mask. Make it the same density as the amount the other print is over dense. 8x10 should be fairly easy to reregister by eyeball method. You could go the extra step and make an unsharp mask out of it if you think the print could stand the extra zing.

    Make an interpositive that leaves NO density in the area of the sky. Then with that interpositive make another negative. (That will expose just the sky because there's no density there on the interpositive) . Once developed, bleach off any areas other than the area you want masked on that new neg. Then realign the new neg with the original with the new neg on top(use a lightbox). Tape together and use the sandwich to print. Contact Lynn Radeka at Radeka Photography where he has detailed instructions for this type of thing!

    Good Luck

    another option not mentioned is to make a lith print, heavy on the exposure and pull the print when the black emerges.
    Lith works very well with negatives of contrast

    As Jorge mentioned there is a red powder . sp. *Red Coccine * that can be used to put on the negative.
    I worked with a wedding photographer who used this since the late forties for bringing up detail in a black suit when printed next to a brides white dress.
