28. Construction Yard

28. Construction Yard


Here's a photo from the archives, taken at the same day as the '13. Headless Approach'-photo (actually it's the same sign you see in the background). I really liked the composition of this one, but decided to go with heavy post processing (inspired by a tip at digital-photography-school.com)

To get the dreamy, blurry effect together with a good boost in contrast and saturation just

  1. Open the photo in Adobe Photoshop.
  2. Copy the whole photo onto a new layer.
  3. Do a Gaussian Blur on the new copy; just as much as to blur out details but preserve shapes.
  4. Set the blurred layers blend mode to Overlay; that's it.

Afterwards I did minor adjustments on the contrast. Originally shot with the 50mm prime lens.
