    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

    [​IMG] 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.

    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
