One Photo Focus

robin-kent-one-photo-focus-july-1 PS Edit

Good morning from a grey and wet Hastings day.

This month for Stacy’s challenge over at Visual Venturing we are all editing this photo by Robyn Kent. Below is the original.

I imported the image into Photoshop where I used Camera Raw to increase clarity, vibrancy and saturation.

Then I went to the preset filters and posterized it – but reduced the width of the edges.

 Then I added the blur filter to get the spin affect, at the same time making sure that the dome is still in focus.  I wanted the blur lines to reflect the curves of the dome.

Finally I converted to black and white and fiddled around with the black slider to get the affect I wanted.

  1. This is a really great edit of Robin’s photo. I almost feel like I’m being pulled into a time vortex. If I step through I wonder when I will be?!?


  2. Simple and effective, I like the BW, thats def an improvement, it reminds me of an effect on the old original Dr Who show 🙂


  3. Raewyn, for some reason, I didn’t find this when I came looking on Friday. I assumed you hadn’t written a post, but coming back today, I see I was wrong. My apologies for my late comment on your 1PF submission! I’m really glad you DID write something up because I really wanted to know how you had done what you did. Very cool effect. I will put this on my “to try” list and look forward to when I can actually give it a whirl (haha, no pun intended 😀),
