When I select a cubject that contrasts its background, there is a very noticable outline, even before playing with the sliders. Is there any way to get it to blend more naturally?

So, looks like Chromatic Aberration. Nothing to do with the Sky Mask, although the mask is helping you see it.

In the Lens Corrections> Profile panel make sure 'Remove Chromatuc Aberration' is checked. This should remove the chromatic fringing in the Select Subject mask.

Ahh.. I do recall reading about this a bit before, and did just assume it was a masking thing. I'll look into the chromatic aberration aspect a bit more and keep that in mind next time, as it seems to be something much easier to solve naturally in camera, like most things. Thanks for the response!

Totally, and in many photos, that's the fix. Strangely, with this image, the box is checked, there doesn't seem to be any until I select the subject, and in lightening the subject, the contrast between that and the dark background is when the outline appears.

thanks for the reply!

You will want to correct that early on, well before any masking

It's interesting really, since this was a low light situation and I was trying to enhance the subject, I reset the photo from any edits, and there doesn't seem to be any chromatic aberration until I select the subject and begin to enhance it. So, I'm not saying there is none present, but I believe it's definitely emphasized when Lightroom is asked to separate the subject from the background and amplifies the contrast.

If you can post the file to Dropbox or other file sharing site we can take a look at what's happening.
