    This usually caused by high contrast. To find it, you can just turn off all of your filters including local adjustment. If it's still there, the problem is in Develop, if it's not, just turn them back on one at a time until you see which filter is causing it.

    If you can't re-adjust for it, one way to compensate for the halo is to make a new local adjustment set to Darken. Draw over the halo. You may have to experiment to see how wide to make it. Then play with the Exposure and Structure to darken and blend the halo just enough to match the rest of the photo. If you don't have enough control with the Exposure slider, don't forget that you can reduce opacity as well.

    Nice photo BTW.

    Thank-you Rick.

    It was indeed under Develop ----> Tone & Color ----> Highlights and set to -77. I recall doing this to make the clouds pop; otherwise it's simply a washed out sky. If I increase the Highlights number towards 0 I then lose the clouds. There doesn't seems to be a happy medium to my liking.

    Since I've found the issue and can get rid of it, how can I then make the clouds pop as as they are in the above image, yet avoid the halo. Does this get into masking... which I no nothing about?

    Is there a gradient polarizing filter that I haven't seen that may work?

    Anything you can do in develop you can also do in Effects.

    You should be asking this in the Facebook group, they would know better how to do that. I don't see your name on the members list, you should join up.
