Verge: Google has added an eraser for bleak skies in Photos
"What Google’s put together is essentially a vibrance slider dedicated to the color blue. If you have a daytime sky, even a wintry one like in my photo below, this thing will saturate the blue to a rich, summery shade in a hurry. Same goes for any waterscapes or other blue-rich pictures in your collection that could do with a boost."

Have you used Deep Blue (Vibrance filter) in PhotoScan? What are you opinions about photo enhancements?
