Hi,

I've read early a general statement about more advanced workflow where one separates the color and luminosity on different layers and then works on each separately.

That can work fine provided you keep the colour and luminosity separate.

However, you have to eventually convert back to RGB to view your image.  The problem is that by working on colour and luminosity separately you can easily go outside the RGB gamut (which is much less than colour + luminosity) and so the colours get distorted when you convert back to RGB.
