    Popeye boat on the Torrens Lake in Adelaide, South Australia

    Well its summer here in Adelaide. Maybe this will warm some of you North of the equator.

    We had lunch at Regattas Restaurant and I stepped out onto the balcony and took this photo.

    It's processed as a fake Tilt Shift

    These things have a limited appeal to me, but this one certainly looks the part - i.e. it's a good fake

    Hi Kym and if I have not already done so welcome to CiC.

    I am with Dave here but to really comment on it I would like to see the original to compare.

    Thanks!
    The original? - nah - its as boring as doggie doos, which is why I did something different to it
    It was early afternoon, hard light etc.

    PP was quite simple...
    1. Played with WB to get the sky/water right
    2. Sharpened a bit
    3. Applied gradient mask over the bits I wanted sharp, then lens blur outside the mask (this is the trick for fake Tilt Shift)
    4. Bumped the saturation a bit
    5. Sharpened a bit more
