    Just some random shots from today with a bit of PS post processing (i.e convert to b/w and layers with gaussian blur to get dreamy effect)

    Small boat marina at Sandford Lock near Chelmsford in the UK

    Bolt on lock keepers shed

    view through the humpback bridge

    Finally...my hand. Considering I have Parkinson's tremor in that hand and right one is a bit shaky too it is a wonder you can see the lines and whorls etc in this hand held shot.

    hand.

    Lovely shots. The third is my favorite, but all are very good.

  7. Ooh, I am partial to some diffuse glow or gaussian blur. Nice set of images.

    No 1 for me. It really sets a nice feel for the image. Having said that there's not a bad shot in the group.

    Thanks for the geneerous comments, much appreciated.

    Using PS I do the following:

    1. duplicate layer
    2. add hue/saturation layer and set slider to mono
    3. merge layer down 1 place
    4. add gaussian blur at about 100
    5. fiddle with layers until dreamy effect arrived at (usually colour dodge or colour burn, but depends on photo)
    6. sometimes I add b/w layer with blue filter and fiddle with sliders until I get further effect
