Synchronize the color of the sky between several photos.
1. Example: I have several photos of birds in flight against a blue sky.
2. The color of the sky varies slightly between photos.
3. The color of the sky in all cases exhibit a gradient.
4. I do not wish to loose the gradient.
5. I wish to pick a point (small area) in the sky of one photo and transplant its color to a point in the sky of the other photos, but I wish the sky in all the photos to retain their natural gradients though translated to originate from the new sky color reference area.

A sort of copy and paste of absolut color, retaining existing gradient within a selectable temperature range, leaving everything outside that range untouched.

A copy and paste of color as opposed to existing copy and paste of adjustments.
